What is the Difference Between Quartz and Quartzite • QSI Quartz

The key difference between quartz and quartzite is that quartz used in countertop preparation is engineered stone that is molded and baked into slabs in a factory, whereas quartzite is about 90 – 99% natural. Quartz and quartzite are important mineral substances that we can use to prepare countertops. These are two high-end countertop materials […]

Silica • QSI Quartz

Also called silica sand or quartz sand, silica is silicon dioxide (SiO2). Silicon compounds are the most significant component of the Earth’s crust. Since sand is plentiful, easy to mine and relatively easy to process, it is the primary ore source of silicon. The metamorphic rock, quartzite, is another source. Silicon (Si) is a semi-metallic […]

Explores the Strength of Fused Silica Composites • QSI Quartz

According to a study conducted by Zhou et al. (2007) and featured on ScienceDirect, fused silica (fused silicon dioxide) is a silica glass known for its amorphous structure. Unlike regular glasses that contain various ingredients to lower the melting temperature, fused silica is pure, resulting in exceptionally high working and melting temperatures. The study also […]
