Concrete, Vermiculite

Vermiculite concrete is a lightweight concrete mixture that incorporates vermiculite as an aggregate. It is created by blending vermiculite with Portland cement, water, and sometimes other additives. Vermiculite, a natural mineral that expands when heated, contributes to the lightweight nature of the concrete. Vermiculite concrete offers several advantages, including low density, thermal insulation properties, and fire resistance. Its lightweight composition makes it easier to handle and transport, while the inclusion of vermiculite improves insulation and reduces heat transfer. Vermiculite concrete finds applications in areas such as roof insulation, lightweight floor screeds, and as a fill material, providing a durable and energy-efficient solution.
