Vermiculite has a wide range of uses that take advantage of its excellent fire resistance, good thermal and acoustic insulating properties, high liquid absorption capacity, inertness and low density.

Vermiculite Applications

Most applications for vermiculite use an exfoliated (heat expanded) form of the mineral. In general, coarser grades of vermiculite are used as loose fill insulation and in horticulture. Finer grades are used in wallboard and plasters and for animal feeds and fertilizers.
