Micro Silica (chemical name for the mineral quartz and a synonym for silicon dioxide) Silica is a compound of the elements silicon and oxygen. It is not chemically combined with other elements. When the basic structure of the molecule is a pattern that is repeated and symmetrical, the silica is considered to be "crystalline." Silica is considered to be amorphous if the molecule lacks crystalline structure. In this brochure, the term silica is used to mean crystalline silica (or crystalline silica's most common form, quartz).
Used in manufacture of special steels and cast iron, aluminum alloys, glass and refractory materials, ceramics, abrasives, water filtration, component of hydraulic cements, filler in cosmetics, pharmaceuticals, paper, insecticides, rubber reinforcing agent - especially for high adhesion to textiles, anti-caking agent in foods, flatting agent in paints, thermal insulator. Fused silica is used as an ablative material in rocket engines, spacecraft, silica fibers used in reinforced plastics. Available in Silica sand, Micro silica, Silica Fumes, Fused Silica, Amorphous Silica, Precipitated silica, Quartz powder, Ramming mass in different mesh sizes and fine powder as per requirement.
