It means that we need to add more cement to increase the strength of the concrete and the danger is that it will lead to cracks in structure reducing the compressive strength and life of the structures.Single Stage Hammer Crusher Manufacturers
What is the alternative?
Manufactured sand is the alternative for river sand. Manufactured sand can now be produced in a stone crushing plant by implementing Vertical Shaft Impactors (VSI) and washing plant like the Ortner.
