Silicon(IV) oxide is used in the manufacture of glass for windows, drinking glasses, beverage bottles and many other materials. Optical fibers for telecommunication are made from silica. It is also used as a raw material for many ceramics such as earthenware, stoneware and porcelain. In addition, silica is a common additive in the production of foods and pharmaceutical products.
