The nature of silica makes it really resilient and difficult to wear out. This implies it is efficient for hot temperatures. Silica is nevertheless restricted in its application. Its distinct nature enables it to be utilized throughout different markets. Silica is easily offered as an inexpensive product.
PROPERTIES OF SILICA SAND:
The properties of silica include both physical and chemical properties like hardness, color, melting, and boiling point.
- Solid and crystallized under normal conditions of temperature and pressure and is relatively hard.
- Colorless, when pure, but it may be colored if contaminants are present in a sample of quartz.
- High melting and boiling points at 3,110 °F and 4,046 °F.
