Quartz use in Paint & Coating Industry

  • Quartz/Silica Powder

    According to the BIS specifications (IS: 67 - 1979) the material should be of two types, namely, crystalline and amorphous. The material shall contain not less than 98% SiO2 and it shall be in dry powder form. Lead constant is SiO2 shall not exceed 0.03%. Color and particle shape shall match with the approved sample.

    High Purity Silica Powder is used in paint industry & coating for the purpose of Wood Finish, Primers, Undercoat, Water based paints, Distemper, Chemical resistance Coating, Floor Coating, Epoxy coating etc. Further, silica is also used in the construction chemicals as well as recommended for texture coating & exterior finishing.
