Perlite is a naturally occurring mineral, which develops into a pure white and inert material of varying sizes, when expanded in our dedicated Perlite Expander, at temperatures up to 1000 Deg C
The resulting pH neutral and biologically stable material has many uses, from thermally insulating materials at around Absolute Zero, through to high temperature applications at 1100 Deg. C.
Low Bulk Density and High Absorbency make the material ideal for paints, fillers and other decorative applications.
Extensive use of Perlite in horticulture, includes hydroponic delivery of nutrients, plant rooting and water holding, together with propagation and compaction.
Uses in the construction industry range from Lightweight Concrete through Concrete roof decks and under floor insulation.
Available in the following grades:
- Standard 0-5mm
- Fine 0-1mm
