  • SILICA LIABILITY

    Jun 01, 2004What is Silica? Silica refers to the chemical compound silicon dioxide (SiO2) and occurs in a crystalline or noncrystalline form. Crystalline silica, also known as quartz, is the second most common mineral in the earth's crust after the gemstone feldspar, and is a major component of soil, sand, rock and many other minerals (Exhibit 1).

  • Glass Manufacturing Process

    Stage 1- Melting Refining: Fine grained ingredients closely controlled for quality, are mixed to make a batch, which flows into the furnace, which is heated up to 1500 degree Celsius. This temperature is the melting point of glass. The raw materials that float glass is made up of are: SiO2 – Silica Sand. Na2O – Sodium Oxide from Soda Ash.

  • The Composition and Properties of Glass

    Jul 15, 2019The glass you encounter most often is silicate glass, which consists mainly of silica or silicon dioxide, SiO 2. This is the type of glass you find in windows and drinking glasses. The crystalline form of this mineral is quartz. When the solid material is non-crystalline, it is a glass. You can make glass by melting silica-based sand.
