This paper describes the nature and characteristics of sands commonly used in the manufacture of concrete and presents details of the various types of sand used for this purpose in South Africa. A brief review is also given of the sand resources in seven of the major towns in South Africa. (Part 1 on coarse aggregates was published by this journal in the June 1978 issue).

Hierdie referaat beskryf die aard van sande wat algemeen in betonvetvaardiging benut word en verwys na die sande wat in hierdie opsig in Suid-Afrika gebruik word. 'n Kort oorsig van sandbronne naby sewe hoofsentra in Suid-Afrika is verskaf. (Deel 1 oor growwe aggregate is in die Junie 1978 uitgawe van hierdie joernaal gepubliseer).
