Dry Screening

Dry screening is a generic term applied to the manufacture of closely graded silica sands.

UK sourced grades are:

  • 16/30 silica sand (0.5-1.0mm)
  • 14/25 (0.7-1.2mm)
  • 8/16 (1-2.0mm)
  • 6/14 (1.18-2.8mm)
  • 5/8 (2.0-3.35mm)

Applications for these grades include artificial sports surfaces, water filtration, industrial resin and cement-based flooring compounds and non-slip surfaces.

These applications rely heavily on the close grading and high hardness of the silica.

If an improved colour and more exacting grading is required imported Belgian Quartz is stocked at our central stores.
