Silica Sand

Silica Sand

Silica sand, also known as quartz sand, white sand, or industrial sand, is made up of two main elements: silica and oxygen. Specifically, silica sand is made up of silicon dioxide (SiO2).

Silica occurs in three main crystalline forms.  The principal occurrence is as the mineral quartz but it also occurs in other rarer mineral forms known as tridymite and cristobalite.  It is a very durable mineral resistant to heat and chemical attack and it is these properties that have made it an essential raw material for many industrial and societal applications.

We supply high quality silica sand in bulk shipment or containerized by bigbags. 

The main end uses of silica sand are:
