Corlett Building Materials Ltd

Silica Sands

Quarried, washed and processed on site, well graded silica sands are our speciality. In addition to our building sand, which is the most popular bricklaying sand used on the Isle of Man, we produce a concreting sand, pavior bedding sand, kiln dried pavior jointing sand. Our unwashed sand is generally very clean and may be used as dug for blinding or covering pipes and cables. All our aggregates have a sulphate and chloride content of less than 0.001%, and typically a silica content in excess of 90%.  All Our silica sands are thoroughly washed and scrubbed to remove any contaminants then sized and dewatered before being stockpiled. Our silica sands are subject to regular in house testing for quality, but independent tests can be carried out at the customers request.
