Architectural glass is one of the most versatile building materials due to its practicality, remarkable beauty, and simplicity. Silica sand is a major ingredient in the production of such glass. Our customers rely on Covia, the glass market’s #1 silica supplier, to provide high-purity crystalline silica sand such as our GLASSIL® sand, that delivers stable chemistry to ensure consistency of their glass batches.
Anti-skid flooring in high-traffic areas and stairways, helps reduce the risk of falls and helps keep employees and visitors safe. Coarse grades of GRANUSIL® sand are used to increase the surface roughness and toughness of flooring, while round whole grain silica sand is vital to optimizing the impact on industrial floor coatings’ properties in commercial or industrial buildings.
Concrete is everywhere. And with architectural concrete becoming an increasingly popular material, concrete manufacturers can expand their production capabilities by calling on our BLACK LAB toll blending services. Our team works with their proprietary formulas to get the job done accurately, confidentially, and quickly.
Electricity is an essential part of our modern life. We all depend on electricity to function efficiently and provide comfort and safety for people. Covia’s sand plays a crucial role in electricity generation by providing necessary materials to traditional and renewable energy sectors.
