Industrial uses of quartz and quartzite

Quartz is used as a diverse mineral in a wide variety of industries. Quartz or quartz sand is required as a basic material 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 more, while quartz sand is also required as a raw material in the abrasives and building materials industries. In addition, the 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 different grain sizes.

Due to its weather-resistant and robust properties, quartzite is very suitable in the building sector as natural stone for floor coverings, gravel and the like. The stone is also used as a raw material in the glass industry. In addition, the refractory industry uses quartzite as a filler for the products of refractory materials.
