The paper presents the results of research on the influence of waste corundum sand used for sandblasting metal structures on the properties concrete. Corundum sand was used as a substitute for sand in the amount of 25%, 50 and 75% of the fine aggregate volume.Testswere carried out on the consistency of concretemixes and the bulk density of concretes. The compressive strength and tensile splitting strength were measured at the age of the concrete of 7 and 28 days. The water absorption of concretes and the depth of water penetration under pressure were also determined. The tests confirmed the possibility of using corundum sand as a substitute for fine aggregate in cement concrete.
