## Cement & Sand Required For 100 Sq.ft Plastering Work:

Plastering is one of the most important works that needs to be done to protect the surface of wall or roof ceiling. In this article, I will discuss quantity of cement and sand required for 100 sq. ft plastering wall (12 mm thickness). After that, you will be able to calculate as per your desired area.

To make my calculation easier, I will convert the feet unit into meter unit.

Area of plaster = 100 sq.ft = 9.29 m²

Thickness of plaster = 12 mm = 0.012 m

Mix ratio of plaster = cement : sand = 1: 4

Volume of plaster = Area of plaster x Thickness of plaster = 9.29 x 0.012 = 0.11 m³

Now we need to add an extra 20% for joint filling, depression and wastage.

Volume of plaster = 0.11 b+ (20×0.11/100) = 0.13 m³

This is wet volume, and we need to find out dry volume. To get dry volume multiply wet volume with 1.35

∴ Dry volume = wet volume x 1.35 = 0.17 m³

### Quantity Of Cement:

Cement = ( Dry vol of plaster x cement ratio)/ Total sum of ratio

= 0.17 x 1/5 = 0.03 m³

We know density of cement = 1440kg/m³

∴ Weight of cement = 0.03 x 1440 = 48.96 = 50 kg

1 bag cement contains 50 kg of cement.

### Quantity Of Sand:

Sand = Quantity of cement x 4 = 0.03 x4 = 0.12 m³

1 m3 = 35.3147 cubic feet = or cft

∴ Sand required = 0.12 x 35.3147 = 4.23 cft

### Summery:

Cement Required = 1 bag

Sand required = 4.23 cft

0.17 dry volume how to come

quantity cement 0.03 cum but find in quantity sand qut cement 0.3cum how to come

Very Best Engineering information

Very gud way of teaching.

Quantity of sand is incorrect, as qty of cement is taken 0.3 but it’s 0.03

Thank you for letting us know about the mistake. We have updated it with correct information.

If i am using unsieved sand, how much waste will i have? Thx.

Thanks for letting us

Nice , but please also ways used SIU.

Used SIU for easy calculation.
