Silica Sand - High Temperature Mortar Ingredient


Before you throw down big bucks for us to ship a bag of this silica sand to you, check with your local Masonry &/or Landscape Supply as this is a commonly stocked item.  Depending on your location, prices can range from $10 - $15 per 100lb bag of silica sand.


Another way to find silica sand - contact your local Pool Supply Store.  Pool filter sand is a perfect fine-grain silica sand!  It is typically sold in 50 - 60lb bags and costs about $12.00 a bag.
