About Silica Sand

Silica sand, also known as quartz sand, or industrial sand, is made up of two main elements: silica and oxygen. Specifically, silica sand is made up of silicon dioxide (Si02).

The most common uses for silica sand are, artificial turf, golf courses and virtually all types of sports fields, industrial abrasives, filtration media, glassmaking, paints and coatings, ceramics, and for construction purposes as construction materials and industrial uses.

Specific Applications

  • Water Filtration – Silica sand is an effective filtration bed that consistently removes contaminants from water.
  • Industrial Abrasives – Silica sand is commonly used as an abrasive to provide a clean and measured surface finish to accept a large variety of finishes that perform as maintenance, lubrication, life-extending protection and aesthetics.
  • Artificial Turf, Golf Courses & Sports Field – Silica sand is used for bunkers, tee boxes and greens on golf courses, as well as for natural and synthetic sports fields.
  • Glassmaking – Silica sand is a major ingredient in the production of glass making. The purity of the silica sand used plays a role in determining the color, strength and clarity of the final product.
  • Paints & Coatings – Silica sand is used in paints and coatings to improve the overall look and durability of the paint. The purity of the silica sand used plays a role in determining the color, strength and clarity of the final product.
  • Ceramics & Refractories – Silica is an important component in the construction and glazing of al l types of ceramics including tableware, floor tiles, wall tiles and more.
  • Construction Materials – Silica sand (often called industrial sand when used for this purpose) is the main structural component in several construction products.
