Silica Sand

In Egypt  there are two main locations of high quility silica sand 1st, Zaafrana – red sea and the 2nd, north and south Sinai , The reseves in Zaafrana area and Sinai are over thousands milion ton of high quality silica sand . which supply the glass industries , paints , foundries , chemicals and ceramics.

Silica sand for glass,solar pannel energy,Silica sand for crystal, Silica sand for foundry, Silica sand for painting, Silica Sand for oil and gas ,Silica Sand for Stamped concrete ,Silica Sand for water filtration ,Silica Sand for gulf Course, Silica Sand for water treatment, Silica sand for plastering ,Silica Sand for sand plastering and for many many uses.etc

TAS produce the silica sand with the next specifications: -
