High Quality Quartz Powder is acknowledged for its milky white appearance, excellent wear resistance properties, unique hardness level and stable chemical attributes. Also referred as silica powder, this mineral has low thermal expansion co efficiency and good dielectric characteristics. This mineral has good dispersion level and it can resist acid and alkali. Crystals of quartz has distinctive piezoelectric property that indicates about their electric voltage generation ability under high pressure. Stiffness of quartz powder and diamond is quite similar. This chemically inert mineral can endure high temperature. It is present in nature.
