Silica sand is often used in building products, filtration and construction. Silica sand typically has round grains and hardness ratings of 6 to 7 Mohs.
Garnet is a cost-effective option as it has a high hardness rating which allows for reuse. It features low dust levels. It is environmentally safe and often used in applications where there is a risk for contamination of nearby bodies of water. Garnet has a hardness of 7 to 8 Mohs.
Olivine sand, also known by the trademark name Green Lightning, is made from dunite rock, and is a magnesium iron silicate. It has a sub-angular shape that provides fast stripping due to its sharp angles. It is often used for cleaning the exteriors of buildings and various concrete surfaces. It has a hardness of 6.5 to 7 Mohs.
Nepheline syenite, also known as White Lightning, is softer than many silica sands so it offers a smooth finish. It is often used in automotive body sandblasting applications. It has a hardness of 6.0 Mohs.
We provide sand for industries including sandblasting, foundry, filtration and water jet cutting. Our products are used in applications ranging from removal of graffiti to preparing surfaces for painting and coatings. We have the experience to understand the requirements of your business.
