Industrial use of quartz and quartzite
Quartz is used as a versatile mineral in various industries. Quartz and quartz sand are needed as basic materials in glass, ceramic and cement production as well as in the electrical industry. The refractory industry also uses the mineral in the form of refractory bricks and other materials, while quartz sand is also used as a raw material in the abrasives and construction materials industries. In addition, mineral quartz, which is one of the most important industrial raw materials, is added to products such as toothpaste, paints and detergents. Depending on the application, the quartz must have varying grain sizes.
Due to its weather-resistant and robust properties, quartzite is very well adapted as natural stone for floor coatings, gravel and other uses in the construction industry. The stone is also used as a raw material in the glass industry. In addition, the refractory industry uses quartzite as a filler for refractory products.
