Silica Sand is quartz that over time, through the work of water and wind, has been broken down into tiny granules.
Silica (SiO2) is the name given to a group of minerals composed solely of silicon and oxygen. Found most commonly in the crystalline state, it also occurs in an amorphous form resulting from weathering or plankton fossilization.
For industrial and manufacturing applications, deposits of silica-yielding products of at least 95% SiO2 are preferred.
Silica sand is used in many different industry such as water filtration, glass manufacture, industrial casting, sand blasting, building chemicals, refractories and foundry industry.
