What Is Silica Dust & Why Is It So Dangerous | Howden

Respirable crystalline silica is the dust that is released from the silica-containing materials during high-energy operations such as sawing, cutting, drilling, sanding, chipping, crushing, or grinding. These very fine particles of the crystalline silica are now released into the air becoming respirable dust.
