Get More with U.S. Silica Sand for Building Products and Construction!

Silica used in building products and construction must take into account a variety of industrial sand properties. Functional consistency for thin layers and even troweling. Color and aesthetic appeal for construction aggregate end uses. Heat conductivity for geothermal applications. That's why U.S. Silica produces a wide variety of whole grain silica and ground silica  - so you can meet all of your building product needs, every single time.

U.S. Silica offers the industry’s greatest variety in sand and ground silica grades. Our high-purity ground silica is available in more than 15 different grades, with precision-ground sizes ranging from 5 to 250 microns. We manufacture the original Ottawa silica ASTM testing sands.
