- Industrial Sand
- Silicosis Prevention
Industrial sand is a foundational material for all building and construction projects. Whole grain silica is used in multiple facets of construction. Silica is used in flooring compounds, mortars, specialty cements, stucco, roofing shingles, skid resistant surfaces and asphalt mixtures. The unique properties of whole grain silica provide excellent packing density and flexural strength while maintaining the chemical balance of the binding system. Ground silica is most valuable as a construction material because it increases durability. Its anti-corrosion and weathering properties in epoxy based compounds, sealants, and caulks make it the most durable and valuable of materials.
The construction materials containing industrial sand touch every single person's daily life. From our homes, to our sidewalks and roads, to the offices we work in, the modern world relies on industrial sand to help shape our environment.
