ADV and pH Tests on Mold Core Sand

Silica sand that is free of impurities will have a pH level of close to 7 which is neutral on the acid and base pH scale The ADV of this pure silica sand also will be zero Impurities in the sand will change both the pH and ADV depending on whether these impurities are water-soluble or -soluble in dilute acid
