In addition to LQS85, Lochaline Mine has developed an additional sand grade: LQS500. This product is similar in appearance to LQS85, but it isnot quite as white and its iron content is controlled at a slightly higher level. The product is a high purity silica sand suited for Clear glass production and is also suitable for any customer who require white silica sand but for whom the iron content is not critical. The datasheet for LQS500 can be downloaded below.
