ASTM Test Sands are specially graded for ASTM tests. The naturally rounded silica sands of nearly pure quartz are mined from the Ottawa, Illinois area. Three different gradings are available, each designed for a specific type of test.
HM-106 Density Test Sand (Sand Cone Test Sand) for sand cone density testing of soils is clean, uniform, uncemented and free-flowing, and meets ASTM D1556/1556M and AASHTO T 191. Few particles pass No. 200 (75μm) or are retained on No. 10 (2.00mm) sieves. Uniformity coefficient less than 2.0, and less than 3% passes No. 60 (250µm). Bulk density varies less than 1%.
HM-107 20-30 Silica Sand (Tensile Test Sand) is manufactured to pass No. 20 (850µm) sieve and be retained on No. 30 (600µm). It meets ASTM C778 and AASHTO T 132 requirements, and also complied with ASTM C190, now a discontinued standard.
HM-108 Graded Standard Sand (Cube Test Sand) is graded between No. 30 (600µm) and No. 100 (150μm) sieves. Meets requirements for ASTM C109 and C778, as well as AASHTO T 106.
All are supplied in 50lb bags and meet ASTM and AASHTO standards indicated.
