M-Sand stands for Manufactured Sand. M-sand is crushed aggregates produced from hard granite stone which is cubically shaped with grounded edges, washed and graded with consistency to be used as a substitute of river sand. It is a fine aggregate that is produced by crushing stone, gravel, or slag.
Natural or River sand are weathered and worn out particles of rocks and are of various grades or sizes depending upon the amount of wearing. Now-a-days good sand is not readily available; it is transported from a long distance. Those resources are also exhausting very rapidly. So it is a need of the time to find some substitute to natural river sand.
The artificial sand produced by proper machines can be a better substitute to river sand. The sand must be of proper gradation (it should have particles from 150 microns to 4.75 mm in proper proportion).
When fine particles are in proper proportion, the sand will have fewer voids. The cement quantity required will be less. Such sand will be more economical. Demand for manufactured fine aggregates for making concrete is increasing day by day as river sand cannot meet the rising demand of construction sector. Natural river sand takes millions of years to form and is not replenishable.
Because of its limited supply, the cost of Natural River sand has sky rocketed and its consistent supply cannot be guaranteed. Under this circumstances use of manufactured sand becomes inevitable.
River sand in many parts of the country is not graded properly and has excessive silt and organic impurities and these can be detrimental to durability of steel in concrete whereas manufactured sand has no silt or organic impurities
PUNE - MUMBAI EXPRESSWAY WAS COMPLETELY BUILT USING ARTIFICIAL/MANUFACTURED SAND.
The Civil engineers, Architects, Builders, and Contractors agree that the river sand, which is available today, is deficient in many respects. It does content very high silt fine particles (as in case of Filter sand). Presence of other impurities such as coal, bones, shells, mica and silt etc makes it inferior for the use in cement concrete. The decay of these materials, due to weathering effect, shortens the life of the concrete. Now-a-days, the Governments have put ban on lifting sand from River bed. Transportation of sand damages the roads. Removing sand from river bed impact the environment, as water table goes deeper & ultimately dry.
Now-a-days, Vastu Shastra is more popular, consults Vastu by many people while constructing a house. As per Vastu Shastra, the building material must be free from traces of human or animal body. The river sand contains bones of human beings and animals. The shells are also a kind of bone. It is not easy to take out all such things present in the river sand. Hence, the best solution for this is to use artificial/crushed sand of good quality for human well being.
Considering, the acute shortage of river sand, huge short coming on quality of river sand, high cost, greater impact on road damages and environmental effects, The Construction Industry shall start using the manufactured sand to full extent as alternative, reduce the impacts on environment by not using the river sand. The Local Authorities/PWD/Govt, encourage the use of Manufactured sand in Public Construction Works, make mandatory to use Manufactured sand.Manufactured sand is the alternative for river sand. This sand is produced from stones which are used for aggregates and the quality is consistent and better than river sand. River sand is highly adulterated with filter sand these days.
Use of M-sand has been already accepted and well-received in Maharashtra and Kerala. Recently, Tamil Nadu and Karnataka Governments have also allowed the use of manufactured sand in all government contracts.
