HOW TO CHECK IMPURITIES IN SAND ON SITE?

Organic impurities in sand may be either due to decayed vegetation, humus, coal particles, or organic and industrial wastes depending upon the source of the sand. It is generally considered that organic impurities retard the setting of cement and thus have deleterious effect on the strength of concrete …

CCANZ - Impurities and Other Harmful Materials

Besides reactive minerals, aggregates may contain other impurities, such as organic matter, which are harmful to concrete. Organic matter, such as that derived from decaying vegetation, is capable of delaying setting and hardening of concrete. It is more likely to be found in fine than in coarse aggregate and may be detected by the test set out ...

Organic Impurities in fine aggregates

Organic impurities, usually in the form of tannic acid and its derivatives, are typically present in fine aggregates such as sand. These may interfere with the chemical reaction of hydration and may effect the strength of the mortar or concrete where the aggregates are used. The test method for this determination conforms to the alternative procedure specified in ASTM C40.
