The Quartz Corp Feldspar - An Excellent Alternative to Ground Silica Products

The Quartz Corp is a key supplier of high purity, low-iron Feldspar and Mica products in North America.  These minerals are primarily used as fillers in a variety of applications such as; paints and coatings, adhesives, caulks, and sealants, plastics, engineered stone, ceramics, glass, and abrasives and polishes.

The Quartz Corp's Minspar© products are a great alternative to ground silica products, such as Min-U-Sil and Sil-Co-Sil from US Silica and Nepheline Syenite and Minex from Unimin.  Minspar© products are low in iron, chemically inert, and non-hydroscopic.  They provide excellent:

  • Abrasion and burnish resistance
  • Color consistency
  • Excellent tint retention
  • Ease of dispersion
  • Resistance to fading, chalking, cracking, and loss of gloss
  • Chemical resistance
  • Formulation flexibility
  • Exterior durability
  • Improved binder stability
  • Excellent stain and mildew resistance
The Quartz Corp typically has short lead times for bagger products, averaging just 2-3 weeks from the time we receive your order to the date it ships from our facility in Spruce Pine, NC.  Most of our products are also available in bulk via truck or rail.  We export our products internationally as well.
