Plastering Cement Sand Calculator
Plastering Calculator can be used to calculate the required quantities of Cement and Sand for plastering brick or block works. Input the thickness of plastering and the dimensions of the area required to plaster the quantities can be calculated easily.
Example for Calculating the Cement and Sand Required
Using the given formula and self explanatory example it is very easy to determine the amount of cement and sand required for plastering 100 m2 area.
To calculate the cement and sand for plastering 100 m2 area in 1:5 ratio and 15 mm thickness.
Plastering thickness 12 mm = 12/1000 = 0.012m
Volume of cement mortar required = ( Plastering Area x thickness )= 100 m2 x 0.015m = 1.5 m3
Above is the wet Volume
Consider 35% Sand Bulkage = 1.5 m3 x (1+0.2+0.35) = 2.31 m3
Cement : Sand (Ratio) = 1 : 5 ( Total = 1+5 = 6 Parts )
1, Cement required (1 Part) = 2.31 x 1/6
= 0.386 m3 /0.0347
= 11.11 bags (Approx – 11 Bags)
2, Sand required (5 Part) = 2.31 x 5/6
= 1.93 M3
