Quartz Suppliers in India
Quartz is a chemical compound called silicon dioxide. Quartz is also known as a ubiquitous mineral with an enormous number of uses.
It is chemically inert in contact with most substances. It has electrical properties and heat resistance that make it valuable in electronic products. Its lustre, colour and diaphaneity make it useful as a gemstone and also in the making of glass. This makes it a very essential mineral in our day-to-day life. Quartz is highly resistant to both mechanical and chemical weathering. This durability makes it the dominant mineral of mountaintops and the primary constituent of beach, river and desert sand.
After being processed to quartz sand < 600 μm, the quartz is used in the manufacture of glass; for special paints (road building); in foundries as moulding sand; in adhesives for the ceramics industry; in sand blasting equipment; for sanding sports stadiums; etc. Even finer in the < 80 μm range with a steep particle size distribution is found in ceramic base compounds, and at a fineness of < 20 μm in glazes.
