Quartz

Quartz is the second most abundant mineral on Earth's crust. A wide variety of high grade Quartz that we are offering is appreciated for its resistance against mechanical and chemical weathering. Quartz (Silica SiO2) is the most common mineral in the Earths crust. Quartz is found in sandstones, pegmatites granites, and other igneous rocks.

It is hard, chemically inert and has a high melting point, attributable to the strength of the bonds between the atoms and extremely resistant to weathering. Quartz used in many industries:- Quartz sand/grains in Glass Industry, Ceramics Industry, Paint industry, Oil well drilling. A wide variety of high grade Quartz that we are offering is appreciated for its resistance against mechanical and chemical weathering. They are ubiquitous and durable. The offered Quartz is finely processed at our sophisticated production unit. We are a well-established Quartz Manufacturer, Exporter and Supplier from Rajasthan (India). We provide them in safe, industrial grade packing. Also, we can process bulk orders on request.

Uses In Artificial Quartz Stone Manufacturing

Made of approximately 93% quartz by weight. The other 7% is epoxy resin which is required to hold the quartz together scratch resistant, stain resistant, amd heat resistant end products.

Uses of Quartz in Glass Making

Geological processes have occasionally deposited sands that are composed of almost 100% quartz grains. These deposits have been identified and produced as sources of high purity silica sand. These sands are used in the glassmaking industry. Quartz sand is used in the production of container glass, flat plate glass, specialty glass and fiberglass.

Uses of Quartz as an Abrasive

The high hardness of quartz, seven on the Mohs Scale, makes it harder than most other natural substances. As such it is an excellent abrasive material. Quartz sands and finely ground silica sand are used for sand blasting, scouring cleansers, grinding media, and grit for sanding and sawing.

Uses of Quartz as a Foundry Sand

Quartz is very resistant to both chemicals and heat. It is therefore often used as a foundry sand. With a melting temperature higher than most metals it can be used for the molds and cores of common foundry work. Refractory brick are often made of quartz sand because of its high heat resistance. Quartz sand is also used as a flux in the smelting of metals.

Uses in the Petroleum Industry

Quartz sand has a high resistance to being crushed. In the petroleum industry sand slurries are forced down oil and gas wells under very high pressures in a process known as hydraulic fracturing. This high pressure fractures the reservoir rocks and the sandy slurry injects into the fractures. The durable sand grains hold the fractures open after the pressure is released. These open fractures facilitate the flow of natural gas into the well bore.

Many Other Quartz Sand Uses

Quartz sand is used as a filler in the manufacture of rubber, paint and putty. Screened and washed, carefully sized quartz grains are used as filter media and roofing granules. Quartz sands are used for traction in the railroad and mining industries. These sands are also used in recreation on golf courses, volleyball courts, baseball fields, children's sand boxes and beaches.
