Silica Sand - an overview ScienceDirect Topics

15.2.1 Silica Sand. Naturally, the most common aggregate still in use is silica sand because of its worldwide availability, appropriate particle size and distribution and high melting point. Even so, the situation is undergoing rapid change as a result of the danger of breathing in silica dust leading to the danger of silicosis, an incurable and sometimes deadly affliction.
