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

Applications for Vermiculite are based on the exfoliated (heat expanded) form of the mineral. In general, coarser grades of Vermiculite are used as loose fill for packaging and in horticulture / agriculture. Finer grades are used in fire protection boards and bricks, paints and plasters.
