The photo shows a typical scenario of what can happen when unwashed dirty sand with a high silt content is used to plaster a wall. This wall had to be fully stripped back down to the blockwork and re-plastered at a cost of hundreds of Euro for the customer. The builder's provider in question had to reimburse their customer and supply Bryko plastering sand to re-do the job properly. This could so easily have been prevented had the plasterer used appropriate materials. Poor quality plastering sand can also result in a myriad of building defects such as visible hairline cracking, and would be a common cause of blockwork joints being visible through a coat of plaster. Plasterers who value their trade will not use poor quality plastering sand, and will simply go to a builder's providers where they know that they are guaranteed a consistently high quality product.
To determine what volume of material is required, simply multiply the length, width and depth in meters, this will give you the volume of material required in cubic meters.
1.5 square meters per 25kg bag
1.2 square meters per 25kg bag (mixed with white cement for snow white finish)
When spread at an average depth of 50mm: 0.25 square meter per 25kg bag.
804 has a massive variety of uses and depth of the product will change dependant on soil conditions. For the normal DIY user for paths and patios for light use with stable soil conditions. 804 needs to be laid a minimum of 100mm depth and compacted using a roller or vibrating plate.
