Sand and Aggregates

Customize your mortar using our sand and aggregates.

At Lancaster Lime Works, we have a saying; Sand is not sand, is not sand, is not sand!

The correct sand for lime putty and NHL mortars is critical to avoid failures. We offer a wide variety of sand and aggregates for lime mortars because if you use the wrong type, failure will occur. Lime Mortars get much of their strength from the sand. We offer sharp sand for NHL and lime putty mortars that have the correct bell curve and particle sizes. We have fine sands for lime plaster and butter joint mortars. Contact us today with any questions on our aggregates!
