Quartz, chemically known as Silicon Dioxide (SiO2), is one of the most important minerals available on the earth’s surface. It is used in various industries like manufacturing of glass, artificial marble & slabs and also used as an abrasive due to its hardness and durability. It can be identified by its glassy brilliance, conchoidal fracture, and crystal shape.Get A quote
The main component of instrumentation glass, flat sheet, specialty glass, and fibreglass is quartz powder. Additionally, lenses for glasses, telescopes, microscopes, prisms, sensors, and other technological and scientific devices are made of quartz.
Quartz is a great abrasive because of its high hardness—a Mohs scale score of seven—which makes it more durable than most other natural materials. For sandblasting, scouring cleaners, grinding media, and grit for sanding and sawing, quartz powder and finely ground oxides are utilized.
Artificial marble and artificial quartz slabs are made using quartz grains and powder.
Rubber, paint, and putty can all be made using quartz powder as a filler.
For traction, the mining and railroad sectors employ quartz powder. These sands are used for recreation on beaches, baseball diamonds, volleyball courts, golf courses, and sandboxes for kids.
