Silica Sand

Silica Sand is one of the common varieties of sand in the world. This is widely used in different industrial processes for making glass, moulds and castings. It is utilized in different ways like glass manufacturing, industrial casting, water filtration, sand blasting, concrete, etc. This sturdy and durable mineral is resistant to chemicals and heat that makes it able to be used in different industries. It is the most common mineral found in the Earth continental crust. This silica sand is developed from breaking down the quartz crystals. It comes with high level of purity without any kind of adulteration. It is also used commercially by companies that are engaged in oil and natural gas sector in unconventional and conventional resources. It is high purity silica sand available with closely controlled sizing. In addition to this, it is available in precise form than asphalt gravels and common concrete.

Usages of Silica Sand:

1) Utilized in different industrial sectors such as personal care products, glass, construction materials, electronics, etc.
2) Used for equestrian surfaces, golf course root zones, artificial turf, etc.
3) Used for disodium ultramarine, water purification, synthetic foundry moulding catalysts, etc.
4) Used in the development of refractory, acid heat resistant ceramics, pottery glaze, enamel and many more.
