Buy Low price 65 INR/Kg Perlite. Perlite is a naturally occurring volcanic glass that expands when heated. It is a type of amorphous volcanic glass that has a relatively high water content, typically formed by the hydration of obsidian. When perlite ore is heated rapidly, it expands up to 20 times its original volume due to the presence of water trapped in its structure.
This expanded perlite is lightweight, sterile, and has excellent thermal insulation properties. As a result, it is commonly used in horticulture, construction, and industrial applications. In gardening, perlite is often added to soil mixes to improve aeration and drainage. In construction, it is used as an aggregate in lightweight concrete and plaster. Additionally, perlite is used in various industrial processes, such as filtering and insulation.
Perlite's lightweight and insulating properties make it a valuable material in various applications, and it is mined in locations where volcanic activity has deposited perlite-rich deposits. The material's ability to expand when heated makes it versatile for different purposes, contributing to its widespread use in various industries.
