How to mix sand and cement to make a Trentino porphyry floor

How to mix sand and cement to make a Trentino porphyry floor with cubes and square plates is definitely a critical step for the life of the floor. This work have to be done by following strict rules and not improvising any of the steps as they will determine the duration of the work done.

The mixture of sand and cement can be done in different ways depending on the tools you have available, usually the type situations are three and I’m going to describe below:

Mix sand and cement by hand

 

Mix sand and cement by hand is a situation that usually occurs when there are little jobs to do at home and you do not have available the tools that normally has a firm.

Recommended intake 20 shovels of sand for 25 kg of cement. Put the sand on a clean floor, should not be in contact with the earth, if you work on a grass lawn, use a towel to keep separate sand and earth.

To get a good dough mix the sand with dry cement for at least three times stirring well all over the pile. After you can wet the dough stirring again all until you have a paste-like mixture moist but not too muddy.

Mix sand and cement with the cement mixer

 

The best method is to empty the cement above the sand, and then load the cement mixer whit the shovel, trying to load sand and cement together a little at a time, after wetting so as to obtain the wet dough and easy to work with.

Never load all the sand into the mixer cement and then put the cement as you never have a uniform mixture, a part will have much cement and some little.

The recommended doses are 250 kg of cement for 1 cubic meter of sand.

Mix sand and cement with a mechanical mixer and bucket

 

Loading the sand, add the cement and mix for at least 5 minutes, occasionally reverse the direction of rotation in order to obtain a perfect mixture. This is the best method for mixing sand and cement. The doses are always the same as indicated above.
