This chapter will explain how foundry excess systems sand (FESS) can be successfully incorporated into many standard construction products, such as asphalt concrete, portland cement, portland cement concrete, and flowable fill material, along with some illustrative experiences. Strength and durability problems of some construction products using FESS with a higher clay content are considered. Other difficulties reported with substituting FESS into the products will be discussed, along with viable solution approaches.
