Expanded Perlite: Description

  • Expanded perlite is a mineral product obtained by expansion of raw perlite. Perlite is a siliceous glass-like volcanic mineral. It is hard and brittle and expands up to 20 times its original volume depending upon the mineral source.
  • Raw perlite is milled and expanded by controlled rapid heating, which causes water molecules to escape from the mineral. This causes a popping sound, similar to a popcorn’s pop.
  • Expanded perlite is a chemically inert, non-toxic, and stable material with excellent thermal, audio, and electrical insulation properties. It is primarily utilized in the construction industry for insulation, in the horticulture industry as soil aggregates, and in the beverage industry for food contact filtration applications.
  • Physical characteristics of expanded perlite makes it an ideal option for usage for filtration purposes. Perlite filter aids are inert, lightweight, and do not impart any taste or odour when used for filtering liquids. They are highly soluble in organic acids. Thus, perlite filter aids are useful for various industrial filtration purposes.
  • The European Union recently approved the usage of expanded perlite as an additive in animal feed. Expanded perlite is employed in various industries such as pharmaceuticals, paints & coatings, and chemicals
  • Consumption of beer, juices, wine, etc. has increased. This is boosting the usage of expanded perlite, since it is used in the processing of beer, juices, and wine. This trend is expected to drive the market for expanded perlite in the near future.
