Production Commercial Firm 'Stark', Ltd extracts sand which is used in metallurgy, glass-making, and dry building mix production. At first, it was able to produce metallurgy sand only, so the company depended on the demand for metal a lot. That is why they had designed and applied new unique techniques of sand concentration (by washing the sand, they reduced the ammount of clay and other admixtures in it), which resulted in expansion of the range of goods.
Today PCF 'Stark', Ltd produces sand of the following kinds: ОВС-020-В, ВС-030-В, ВС-040-1, ВС-050-1, С-070-1, PK-020-З, PK-030-З, PK-040-З, PK-050-З, PK-070-З.
