Vermiculite Board | Insulation, Fire protection
Low Cost | Good Insulation | High Strength | Excellent Fire Protection
Wedge W-VCL high temperature insulating boards are manufactured with base material exfoliated vermiculite and inorganic binders.
The material is free of asbestos and organic substances. Vermiculite is an aluminium-magnesium layer silicate, which bloats to ultralightweight granulates through heating and is processed to boards, bricks and shaped parts through a compression mould procedure. Good quality Vermiculite board for thermal insulation, ladle furnace, steel structure building fire protection at low price made Wedge India.

What is Vermiculite ?
Vermiculite is a naturally occurring mineral that expands when heated. Expanded vermiculite has unique and versatile characteristics; it is lightweight, provides energy savings when used as insulation, it is non-combustible, highly absorbent, pH neutral, inert, non-reactive to all but very strong acids and compressible.
These desirable characteristics allow vermiculite to be widely and beneficially used in industrial and commercial applications including: packaging, fire protection, refractory and high temperature insulation, loose fill insulation, lightweight concrete screeds, plasters, friction linings, special coatings, swimming pool liners, animal feedstuffs and horticultural potting mixes. Technically, vermiculite is a hydrated magnesium iron aluminium silicate mineral in the form of shiny flakes, which are usually golden brown to blackish in colour.
Vermiculite is expanded (exfoliated) by heating the crude flaky mineral. The exfoliated (expanded) granules are many times greater in volume than before heating and are more concertina shaped, more golden to light, greyish brown sometimes silvery gold in colour and are much less dense.

Vermiculite Board Applications:
Vermiculite Boards for Building Fire Protection
FIREPROOF VERMICULITE BOARD are boards that can be produced in various size and densities. It is the ideal choice of insulation materials used in industrial furnaces, fireplace, boards of metallurgy, construction, petrol, chemical, machinery, power, light industries. Fireproof vermiculite board characterises high temperature resistant, low density, long durability, ease of process and installation etc. When it is heated, any gas that would be hazard to human will not occur, no smoke, not toxic, no smell, A grade fireproof board.
