Vital To Life, We have played with it, admired it, and build houses with it. It has been a part of our diet since the beginning of time. One of the most abundant elements on the earth’s surface, Silica is present everywhere in our lives.
Silica is the most abundant mineral in the earth's crust, but you might not know much about it. We have established ourselves among the most prominent Manufacturers and Suppliers in the country. We manufacture extremely pure Silica
Silica is another name for the chemical compound silicon dioxide. Each unit of silica includes one atom of silicon and two atoms of oxygen. If you have never heard of silica before, you might be surprised to hear that you probably come into contact with it every day. Silica makes up the mineral called quartz, and it is the most abundant mineral in the earth's crust. It is the main component of most sand and the primary ingredient in glass. Every time you pick up a glass to take a drink, you are using silica.
Silica has been known to humans since ancient times, long before we knew it was made of silicon and oxygen. The art of making glass objects with silica dates back centuries. Today, there are many industrial uses for silica. These include abrasives, building materials, fillers, electronics, and water filtration. Our readiness to offer Silica as per clients’ demands has placed us among the superior Silica Suppliers and Silica Sand Exporters.
The properties of silica include both chemical and physical properties such as hardness, color, melting and boiling point, and reactivity. Silica under normal conditions of temperature and pressure is a solid, crystallized mineral. It is relatively hard, rating a 7 on the Mohs scale, a scale used to measure the hardness of minerals relative to each other. The hardest mineral, diamond, rates 10 on the scale.
Pure silica is colorless, but if contaminants are present in a sample of quartz, it may be colored. For instance, rose quartz is silica with trace amounts of iron. This gives it a pinkish hue. Milky quartz is simply silica with air bubbles or inclusions of liquid that make the mineral appear white.
Silica, we take great pride in developing top-quality, specialty, and premium industrial silica products and applications. We also strive to be consistent in chemistry, size and delivery - all of which help contribute to a successful supply chain. By working hard to understand the particular needs of your industry and its applications for silica, we hope to create additional value for you and your products, services and operations.
