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).
In order to be considered a silica sand the material must contain at least 95% SiO2 and less than 0.6% iron oxide. If the sand does not meet this criteria, it will qualify as what’s often called ‘regular’ sand.
Here are seven of the most common uses for silica sand.
• Golf courses & sports fields
• Industrial abrasives
• Filtration media
• Glassmaking
• Paints & coatings
• Ceramics
• Construction materials.
