Silica Sand Industrial Raw Materials

Silica Sand Used in industrial processing is composed of silicon and oxygen (SiO2).

SILICA SAND Or Industrial Sand

Consists of small grains or particles of mineral and rock fragments. The dominant component of silica sand is the mineral quartz, which is composed of Silicon Dioxide.

Silica Sand Industrial Raw Materials
Locations

There are large quantities of the purest silica in the  Kingdom of Saudi Arabia.

The Sifting Company for Industry mines and extracts the purest ores of silica and treats them physically and chemically and classifies them into several sizes of silica sand granules.

Also, the Sifting Company for Industry grinds silica sand to produce silica powder, which is used as a basic raw material for many other industries.
