Silbond®

Surface Treated Quartz

The Silbond range of minerals from Quarzwerke originate from Quartz which is purified, cleaned and ground down to between 2 and 40 microns. One grade is a basic quartz flour, one is a fused quartz and one is a calcined grade now called Cristobalite. All 3 grades are surface treated with a variety of silanes giving enhanced properties.
