Silica sand is a granular material that contains quartz and minute amounts of coal, clay and other minerals. It is also known as quartz sand and industrial sand, and is largely used in several construction applications.
Silica is another name for silicon dioxide, 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.
Industrial sand is a term normally applied to high purity silica sand products with closely controlled sizing. It is a more precise product than common concrete and asphalt gravels.
From water filtration, to glass manufacture, to industrial casting, to sand blasting, to producing concrete, to adding texture to slick roads, silica sandimpacts every aspect of daily life.

Uses of silica sand
Whole Grain Silica products range in size, distributions, grain shapes, and chemical purity. Whole grain silica is used in the oil and gas industry, in the manufacture of glass products, including architectural and solar glass applications, as well as in the foundry industry and building products industry.
Ground Silica, depending on size, is used in plastics, rubber, polishes, cleansers, paints, glazes, textile fibreglass, precision castings, premium paints, specialty coatings, sealants, silicone rubber, and epoxies.
