    I know there is a difference in the concrete sand and mason sand but what is the true difference? Particle size obviously but what is the difference. ICPI requires a concrete sand and the local distributors for bulk sell mason sand.

    Thanks

    Mason sand is poorly graded, meaning it has alot of one size particle, hence it does not drain as well. Particle shape has a lot to do with it as well. mason sand particles are rounded, concrete sand particles are angular.
