Areas of Usage

In House and Potted Plants

Vermiculite has a widespread use worldwide in agricultural activities. Vermiculite constitutes a suitable plant growing environment due to its structure in terms of agriculture. It is often used in the formulation of fertilizers by mixing with peat or peat. The vermiculite/peat or coconut shell formulation creates the ideal conditions for a plant to grow. The presence of vermiculite grains in the fertilizer helps aeration, contributes to the development of retention moisture and the release of added fertilizers, while vermiculite with potassium, magnesium and other small elements. The air/water ratio in vermiculite/peat and coconut shell fertilizer provides an ideal stimulation for the growth of the root and, with it, helps to produce healthier young plants. Vermiculite is sterile when processed for agriculture. If stored correctly, it does not require any other application when adding fertilizer to it. Vermiculite can also be used as a storage agent and expander for fertilizers, pesticides and herbicides. It can also be used in powder form for encapsulated seeds. In horticulture, vermiculite provides moisture and the nutrients it needs, as well as aeration of the soil that the plant needs in order for the roots, stems and seeds to grow faster.

Vermiculite eliminates the problems caused by compact soil in flower pots. When mixed with half vermiculite, half soil, peat or fertilized soil products by volume, it provides excellent air and moisture control for houseplants. In addition, by reducing the soil load of large-sized pots, they can be placed on shelves and hung on the ceiling.

Medium size vermiculite, which is used by mixing 50% evenly with the soil, provides the ventilation, moisture regulation and rooting that your potted flowers need by requiring less water. The use of vermiculite in houseplants is quite widely preferred.
A wide range of products are produced that can withstand temperatures of more than 1100 ºC. Refractory products used in vermiculite:

Fire bricks produced with calcined clay
High alumina concretes
High alumina condensed bricks, slabs and special shapes
Products with silicate content

Due to the excellent thermal insulation and low density of vermiculite, it is used as a filling material in the production of steel and metal coatings in order to minimize temperature losses on molten steel in ingots and ladles. Pressed vermiculite blocks are used in high-temperature January and furnaces, incinerators, boiling, wood burning stoves and night storage heaters. Today, fiber insulation is also widely accepted. The products are made of simple blocks, electrical elements, screws, etc., which are designed in highly detailed molds. it is also used in fields.
