Washed Silica Sand

Washed Silica Sand

Silica is an abundant mineral on the earth crust, and it is in sand, quartz and any other minerals. Some minerals have pure silica but in some, silica is mixed with other elements. In silica, the sulfur and oxygen atoms joined by covalent binds to form a huge crystal structure. Silica is also present inside our bodies in considerable amounts. Silica is needed for healthy maintenance of bones, cartilages, nails, tendons, teeth, skin, and blood vessels.

  • Silica sands are finer, have a consistent grain size and generally composed of singular crystal elements of pure silicon dioxide.
  • Silica sand used for water purification and manufacture of glass, synthetic foundry moulding catalysts, disodium ultramarine etc. it is also used for acid heat resistant ceramics, refractories, pottery glaze, enamel etc.


Silica sand is one of the most common varieties of sand found in the world. It is used for a wide range of applications. Sand is the general term for broken down granules of minerals or rocks, technically between about one-sixteenth of a millimeter to two millimeters in diameter, falling between silt and gravel in the spectrum of sizes. There are many varieties of sand in the world, each with their own unique composition and qualities.

Silica is another name for silicon dioxide, SiO2, of which quartz is a specific latticed structure. So silica sand is quartz that over the years, through the work of water and wind, has been broken down into tiny granules. These granules can be used for many different purposes, and can be found in most non-tropical regions of the world.

USES:- Silica sand used for water purification and manufacture of glass, synthetic foundry molding catalysts, disodium ultramarine etc. it is also used for acid heat resistant ceramics, refractories, pottery glaze, enamel etc. Silica sand of 150 mesh is used in Sawing stone, grinding and surfacing glass and polishing marble Rounded Grains of silica sand are used for sand blasting it is also used as a filler in paints 'Wood Paste' molded hard rubber goods, gypsum Plasters, ox chloride acoustic plasters and soap.
