Product Description

Silica Sand 0-1000 micron

Silica sand in the 0-1000 micron size range consists of fine to very fine particles, with most of them falling between 1 millimeter (1000 microns) and 0.001 millimeters (1 micron) in diameter. This range of silica sand is highly versatile and is used in various industries and applications. Here’s a description of silica sand in the 0-1000 micron size range:

  1. Particle Size Range: Silica sand in this size range is characterized by its fine particle size, making it suitable for a wide range of applications that require fine-grained materials.
  2. Purity: High-quality silica sand in this size range is typically composed of at least 95% silicon dioxide (SiO2), ensuring a high degree of purity.
  3. Color and Texture: Silica sand in this size range is usually light-colored, often white or light beige, and has a fine, granular texture. It feels smooth to the touch and can flow like a fluid when handled.
  4. Chemical Composition: The primary chemical component of silica sand is silicon dioxide (SiO2), which imparts chemical stability and resistance to most chemicals and environmental factors.
  5. Industrial Uses:
    • Glass Manufacturing: This fine silica sand is a crucial raw material in the glass industry, contributing to the clarity, transparency, and strength of glass products.
    • Ceramics and Pottery: It is used in ceramics and pottery production to provide structure and stability to clay bodies and glazes.
    • Precision Casting: Fine silica sand is employed in precision casting processes, such as investment casting, where intricate details and high surface finish are required.
    • Electronics Industry: It can be used in the electronics industry for manufacturing silicon wafers for semiconductors.
    • Paints and Coatings: As a filler, fine silica sand is added to paints and coatings to enhance texture, durability, and rheological properties.
  6. Filtration: Silica sand in this size range is commonly used as a filter medium in various applications, including:
    • Water Filtration: Silica sand is used in water treatment plants to remove impurities and particles from drinking water and industrial wastewater.
    • Swimming Pool Filtration: It is utilized in pool filters to trap and remove debris and contaminants from pool water.
    • Aquarium Filtration: Fine silica sand is used in aquarium filters to provide effective mechanical filtration.
  7. Sandblasting: Fine silica sand can be used in sandblasting applications for surface preparation and cleaning, especially when a smoother finish is desired.
  8. Mold Making: In some mold-making applications, particularly those requiring fine details and a smooth surface finish, this fine silica sand can be used as a mold material.
  9. Construction Materials: It is used as a filler in various construction materials, such as grouts and cement-based products, to improve texture and workability.
  10. Agriculture: In agriculture, fine silica sand can be used in soil mixtures to improve soil structure, aeration, and drainage.

The specific applications of silica sand in the 0-1000 micron size range are extensive, and its fine particle size makes it valuable in industries and processes that require precision, smoothness, and consistency.
