Silica sands for glassworks are required to be of the utmost purity, meaning SiO2 content of at least 99,2 % and low contents of Fe2O3, Al2O3 and TiO2. Our silica sands are supplied to window glass manufacturers worldwide for solar glass and colourless, packaging and technical glass. Our sands are also used for glass batches which are in turn used for soluble glass manufacturing. An equally essential application is in glass wool production for the construction industry.
Dolomite gravels and flours are characterised by a high CaMg(CO3)2 content (min. 90 %) and a low CaCO3 content (only max. 10 %), with a low Fe2O3 content. Dolomite aggregate is crushed and ground at Grudzeń Las into gravels and flours of various grain size. These are mostly applied in glassworks, where the calcium carbonate is used as a stabiliser, modifies viscosity and increases the durability of glass. Another major area of application is the construction industry.
This is a fireproof material (more than 1800 °C) whose high temperature resistance makes it ideal for places exposed to the high heat of casting, and not only of steel. Compared to silica sand, it differs in its higher cooling effect, resistance to penetration, and lower thermal expansion. However, its relative density is higher. It also finds application in glass production where glass is tinted, as well as in ceramics.
