GLOBAL MARKET STUDY ON HIGH PURITY QUARTZ: HIKING INVESTMENT IN SOLAR INDUSTRY TO BOOST MARKET PERFORMANCE THROUGH 2026

High purity quartz- commonly known as HPQ or Quartz – is distinguished by exceptionally low concentrations of elements other than silicon and oxygen, having less than 50 ppm of impurities. This naturally occurring element is used by advanced, high-tech industries that include semiconductors, high temperature lamp tubing, telecommunications and optics, microelectronics, solar silicon, and glass manufacturing applications. According to expert analysis, the global high purity quartz market is anticipated to witness a significant CAGR of 7.0% during the forecast period 2018–2026.

Owing to its high-tech application, scant availability around the world, and rising demand from various industries, companies are looking for more sources of high purity quartz. Manufacturers have been investing in research & development activities to develop synthetic high purity quartz to cater the growing demand. However, to achieve essential high purity specifications, quartz used in high-tech industries is required to undergo customized grading and processing techniques by specially designed equipment. This process involves several refinement steps to significantly minimize the proportion of impurities.

Difference Between Glass and Quartz

Both glass and quartz are crystals are used for decorative and industrial purposes. Glass is popularly utilized to make prisms, windows, chandeliers, pendants, necklaces, and most types of household jewelry. Quartz, on the other hand, is usually present in watch batteries and electronic gadgets.

The phrases ‘liquid quartz’ and ‘quartz crystal’ can usually be seen in the technical specifications of a wide range of gadgets. In the industrial trade, glass is formally known as cut glass crystal, while quartz is referred to as quartz crystal. Other names for glass include fine crystal, Swarovski crystal, cut crystal, or Austrian crystal.

There are four major differences between glass and quartz. The first difference relates to silicone dioxide content. Both naturally occurring and artificial quartz crystal contain at least ninety-nine percent silicone dioxide, while cut glass crystal only consists of up to eighty percent silicone dioxide. Furthermore, glass products usually contain thirty-two percent lead, used to enhance glass quality. Mixing lead into the artificial manufacturing of cut glass crystals increases refraction of light, resulting in shinier, less hazy glass products. Like all other crystals, the value of both glass and quartz is dependent on luster, or the amount of light refracted.

History of Glassblowing

Early History of Glass

Natural glass has existed since the beginnings of time, formed when certain types of rocks melt as a result of high-temperature phenomena such as volcanic eruptions, lightning strikes or the impact of meteorites, and then cool and solidify rapidly. Stone-age man is believed to have used cutting tools made of obsidian (a natural glass of volcanic origin also known as hyalopsite, Iceland agate, or mountain mahogany) and tektites (naturally-formed glasses of extraterrestrial or other origin, also referred to as obsidianites)

History of Glassblowing, Who Was First?



Editor’s note: Joe Wheeler is a Scientific Glassblower and a member of the ASGS. At 90 years old, he is very possibly the oldest working scientific glassblower alive today. Almost every day he goes into his glass shop and creates projects of either scientific or artistic handblown glass. He started his career with glass in 1942 as a precision lens engraver for Bausch and Lomb Optical Company in Rochester, NY. Then after 3 1/2 years in the U. S. Navy, in 1946 he apprenticed for 4 years to Hans Blaessig a German trained glassblower. Hans was a hard taskmaster, but the glassworking techniques he learned stayed with him over the years. Additionally, he worked with scientists to design and create glassware at the University of Arkansas, Purdue University, Dow Chemical Company, the University of Wisconsin – Madison, the University of Hawaii, Litton Electron Devices, and Hughes Aircraft, Electron Tube Division.

History of Glass Blowing

The modern art of glass blowing may use modernized equipment, but the essence of working with glass remains an ancient art. Molding red-hot liquid glass to create a lasting glass artifact is an act that requires a creative mind, dexterous hand work, and stamina. It is very physically draining work.

Throughout history, the basic knowledge and techniques of glass blowing have been highly coveted, and at times, held sacred by only a select few. This information was handed down secretively from glass blower to apprentice for thousands of years.

Throughout history, glass blowers were literally held hostage for fear of their knowledge being leaked. During the 1st Century A.D., Phoenician glassworkers were forbidden from traveling, although those who escaped spread the art form into present day Switzerland, France, and Belgium. Similarly, for Venetian glassblowers, leaving the island of Murano was a crime, punishable by death.

Glass can occur naturally; causes include volcanic eruptions, lightening strikes, and meteorite impacts, during which certain rocks melt at high temperature, then cool quickly and solidify. Such natural glass includes obsidian, from volcanic origin, and obsidian, from extraterrestrial origin.

Glassblowing

Glassblowing, the practice of shaping a mass of glass that has been softened by heat by blowing air into it through a tube. Glassblowing was invented by Syrian craftsmen in the area of Sidon, Aleppo, Hama, and Palmyra in the 1st century BC, where blown vessels for everyday and luxury use were produced commercially and exported to all parts of the Roman Empire. At first, glass was blown into decorative molds; vessels shaped as shells, clusters of grapes, and human heads were common early Syrian products, but later Syrian gaffers (blowers) executed natural, spherical forms, without the use of molds

What is Quartz?
Quartz is a chemical compound consisting of one part silicon and two parts oxygen. It is silicon dioxide (SiO2). It is the most abundant mineral found at Earth's surface, and its unique properties make it one of the most useful natural substances.

rock crystal quartz
Rock crystal quartz: Transparent "rock crystal" quartz. This specimen shows the conchoidal fracture (fracture that produces curved surfaces) that is characteristic of the mineral. Specimen is about four inches (ten centimeters) across and is from Minas Gerais, Brazil.

Where is Quartz Found?
Quartz is the most abundant and widely distributed mineral found at Earth's surface. It is present and plentiful in all parts of the world. It forms at all temperatures. It is abundant in igneous, metamorphic, and sedimentary rocks.

Blow Moulding

Blow moulding is a permanent mould process used for the manufacturing of hollow plastic parts. The process can be divided into two main types: extrusion blow moulding and injection blow moulding. Extrusion blow moulding requires less costly tooling, but injection blow moulding offers greater control over part parameters like wall thickness and weight.

This process consists of a few standard steps:

A parison (a preheated hollow tube made of plastic) is fitted onto the blowing head of the machine and then placed inside of the mould. A mould consists of two halves and seals the parison from top and bottom.
Hot air is blown through the blowing head into the parison, expanding it until it takes the shape of the mould.
The hot part is then left for few seconds in the mould for cooling before ejection.
Any extra material on both ends of the part is then removed to obtain the final finished part.
