Firstly, 1:2:4 when batching by head pans means 1 headpan of cement ( not bag) to 2 of sand to 2 of granite. Secondly, you did not consider the fact that a portion of the mix of sand, cement and water will fill up voids in the granite. Meaning that you'll need more of the cement and sand to obtain the desired volumeRed Hot Viewshttps://www.blogger.com/profile/01194359018703882456noreply@blogger.comtag:blogger.com,1999:blog-6085771419118645972.post-10883160298224392292018-07-25T13:22:00.697+01:002018-07-25T13:22:00.697+01:00NO MATERIAL FACTOR?
