Vermiculite  as a packaging material

Vermiculite K 3 offers a good solution as a packaging material due to the high absorption, the low thermal conductivity level, the good suspension and low weight.

Vermiculite K 1 is, due to its excellent absorption capacity, used as a universal liquid binder for oils, fuels, chemicals, acids, alkalis, solutions and other fluids by the Fire Brigade, technical services, industry and hospitals. Due to its structure,  Vermiculite has an anti-slip effect and Vermiculite offers sufficient grip on oily surfaces for the user. The absorbed fluids can therefore be disposed of more easily without problems.

Vermiculite offers the following advantages

  • Affordable
  • Very high absorption capacity (up to 5 times its own weight)
  • Chemically stable
  • Simple handling
  • Non-flammable
  • Good overall suspension
  • Safe to health
  • Easy to dispose of
  • Low bulk weight (very light approx. 70-80 g/ltr.)
  • Low thermal conductivity
  • Resistant to acids and alkalis
  • Anorganic
  • Anti-rotting and non-perishable, no moulding
  • Safe against rodents, insects and termites
  • Sound-absorbing
  • Does not conduct electricity
  • Durable without limits
  • Reusable
  • Environmentally-friendly
