Silica sand is mined mostly for glass-making. Qaurtz sand for glass industry is used in the production of commercial plate glass, automobile glass, glass stones, glass cases, glass fiber for special products, medical glass, glass articles for electronics, bottles, alarm glass and sodium silicate (accelerants).

High quality, white, pure silica sand for glass production, with Silica Dioxide not less than 99.6%, and Ferrous Oxides as low as 0.010%.

Main Features

High purity white Silica sand

With very low Iron content, makes silica granules look ultra-pure, this grade of Silica Sand gives a very pure glass interface, with no impurities.

Silica Sand 99.7% SiO2

We supply high purity silica quartz sand with Silica Dioxide +99.6% SiO2, which helps to achieve the highest quality glass in both transparency and color.
