Due to its flexibility, vermiculite is an ideal material for the construction industry. It has numerous qualities that make it the premium choice for building, including:
- Does not emit toxic fumes
- Does not attract pests/rodents
- Does not deteriorate or decompose
Concrete mixed with vermiculite is approximately 15% lighter, less prone to cracking and stronger due to its moisture absorbency during curing than regular concrete. Vermiculite provides thermal and sound insulation when added to concrete and is often a component in plasters to allow for easy application by improving coverage and adhesion to many substrates.
