Silica Sand Manufacturer in Ahmedabad

Sand industrial foundry silica sand consists primarily of clean, uniformly sized, high-quality silica sand or lake sand, which is bonded to form molds for ferrous (Iron and Steel) and nonferrous (Copper, Aluminum, Brass) metal castings. Industries account that approximately 95 percent of the silica sand is used for castings. The automotive industry and automobile parts suppliers are the major generators of silica sand in Ahmedabad. The most common casting process used in the foundry industry is the sand cast system. The high-grade silica sand, offered by us, is 100 % pure and natural. We are currently exporting silica Sand throughout India, and repeated orders from various clients are the testimony of its excellent quality. Our premium silica sand is thoroughly tested in our well-facilitated testing labs so that customers always get the best quality. Such salient features have brought our name among the prominent natural silica sand manufacturers, exporters and suppliers from Ahmedabad. Chemical composition sio 2, the general impurities are iron/aluminum oxides and lime Physical Characteristics Sandstone is a friable and hard. The grain size of the particles is variable. It is friable and mainly brown to grey in color.

Silica Sand is one of the common varieties of sand in the world. This is widely used in different industrial processes for making glass, moulds and castings. It is utilized in different ways like glass manufacturing, industrial casting, water filtration, sand blasting, concrete etc... This sturdy and durable mineral is resistant to chemicals and heat that makes it able to be used in different industries. It is the most common mineral found in the Earth continental crust. This silica sand is developed from breaking down the quartz crystals. It comes with a high level of purity without any kind of adulteration. It is also used commercially by companies that are engaged in the oil and natural gas sector in unconventional and conventional resources. It is high purity silica sand available with closely controlled sizing. In addition to this, it is available in a more precise form than asphalt gravels and common concrete.
