Vermiculite

BLOCK & BOARD

Vermiculite is a non-combustible fire resistant material that is supplied in a variety of sheet sizes as well as brick form.

It has excellent insulation properties, high thermal shock resistance whilst retaining its mechanical strength when working at high temperatures. The boards and bricks are pressed and moulded to ensure exact tolerances.

Vermiculite is organic, asbestos-free and is manufactured using an aluminium-magnesium layer silicate, which is combined with lightweight granules during a heating process. Vermiculite can be cut, drilled and machined with wood working tools.

Other benefits include:

  • High temperature
  • Machinable
  • Non-combustible
