Yuan Lei tells you | Introduction and application of quartz and quartz powder


Quartz is the mainrock-forming mineralOne, generally refers to low-temperature quartz (α-quartz), yesquartz group mineralOne of the most widely distributed minerals. Generalized quartz also includes high-temperature quartz (Beta-quartz) and coequartz, etc.



       Quartz is a mineral composed of silica,Chemical formulaSiO2. Pure quartz colorless transparent, the Greeks called“Crystal”, which meansWhite ice.They are convinced that quartz is durable and strong ice. Ancient Chinese believed that cold crystals in their mouths could quench thirst. Due to trace pigment ions or fine dispersioninclusions, or there is a color center and a variety of colors, and reduce transparency. It has glass luster, and the fracture is grease luster. Hardness7, no cleavage, shell-shaped fracture. Specific Gravity2.65.Toolspiezoelectricity.



Quartz powder (the same as quartz sand) is also calledsilicon powder. Quartz powder is a hard, wear-resistant, chemically stablesilicate mineralIts main mineral composition isSiO2 Bulk density(20-200The purpose is1.5)Its chemical, thermal and mechanical properties have obvious anisotropy, insoluble in acid, slightly soluble inKOHsolution, melting point1750 ℃.




extracted from the mineQuartz StoneAfter processing, the general fineness in120(less120mesh) of the product is called quartz sand. More120The purpose product is called quartz powder.




Use:Manufacture of glass, refractory materials(furnace charge), smelting ferrosilicon, coatings, rubber filler,metallurgical fluxceramics,abrasive material, metal surface treatment and other aspects, in the construction of its use has a strong resistance to acid medium erosion capacity, the productionacid-proof concreteAnd acid resistant mortar.

Yuan Lei's Little Knowledge | Application of Wet Mica Powder in Rubber


Wet mica powder is widely used, not only in coatings but also in rubber. Below, the editor will take you to understand the application of wet mica in rubber.

Yuan Lei's Little Knowledge | Performance Requirements and Types of Fillers for Coatings


Fillers in coatings are usually white or slightly colored pigments with a refractive index less than 1.7. It has the basic physical and chemical properties of pigments used in coatings, but due to its refractive index being similar to the film-forming material, it is transparent in coatings and does not have the coloring and covering power of coloring pigments. It is an indispensable pigment in coatings.

Yuan Lei's Little Knowledge | Application Effects of Different Mineral Powder Materials in Coatings


In architectural coatings, commonly used mineral materials include barium sulfate, calcium carbonate, kaolin, mica powder, talc powder, quartz powder, silica micro powder, transparent powder, glass powder, wollastonite powder, etc. Reasonable application of various mineral materials can effectively improve or enhance the performance of coatings. Let's take a look at the application of different mineral materials in coatings.
