Quartz is a very common mineral in nature worldwide and is therefore well suited to simulate natural dust exposure. Due to its hardness, it is also often used for wear tests or similar.

In addition to fine quartz dusts, we also offer coarse quartz sands with maximum particle diameters of up to approx. 2 mm. By using very fine quartz dust, however, take the specific health hazard into account. More detailed information about the available grades can be downloaded here.

Further information on standardized quartz dusts and sands can be found under standard test dusts.
