Foundry and standard glass sand of the highest purity

Depend on Simplot for reliable delivery and a consistent quality. Our sand is more than 99% pure silica dioxide, which can be used for any number of applications.

Most Simplot customers rely on our foundry and standard glass sand for metal casting and glass production. In metal casting, our silica sand plays a critical role in everything from plumbing fixtures, valve bodies, aerospace parts, and auto parts (such as wheels). For standard glass sand, by far the biggest user of Simplot’s silica sand is the glass industry because of the sand’s high purity.

Simplot’s silica sand mine in Overton, Nevada, produces the high-quality standard glass sand that your industry demands. While we can’t control what nature produces, we can take care to gather the highest quality silica available and deliver it to you in a timely manner.
