CEMENT TEST METHODS
Sand for measuring mechanical resistance
CEN standardized sand certified according to EN 196-1
ISO standardized sand according to ISO 679
CEN standardized sand (ISO standardized sand) is a natural sand, siliceous in particular in its finest fractions. It is clean, the grains are generally isometric and rounded in shape. It is dried, screened and prepared in a modern workshop offering all guarantees of quality and regularity.
The sand is packaged in polyethylene bags each containing 1350 ± 5 g.
Deliveries are made individually, box of 16 bags weighing 21.6 kg. Also on pallets of 2 to 54 boxes, protected by a polyethylene cover (road transport) or reinforced cardboard (sea transport).
The particle size composition determined by sieving complies with the requirements of standards EN 196-1 (§ 5) and ISO 679: 2009 (§ 5).

These analyzes are supplemented by mass checks of the bags, measurements of the humidity rate and checks of mechanical resistance, in accordance with the requirements of standards EN 196-1 (§ 11) and ISO 679: 2009 (§ 11).
Compliance with the standard is checked by the LEMVP (Laboratoire d’Essais des Matériaux de la Ville de Paris), 4 Avenue du Colonel Henri Rol-Tanguy – 75014 PARIS.
The certificate of conformity with the European standard is issued by AFNOR (Association Française de Normalization), 11 Rue Francis de Pressensé – 93571 La Plaine Saint Denis Cedex.
