Expanded Perlite Market

Market Overview

Expanded perlite is most versatile and efficient mineral that has unique characteristics such as fireproof, insulation, sterile, and light weight. It naturally occurs in siliceous rock, and when exposed to heat to a certain temperature, perlite expands by 4 to 20 times. Expanded perlite is largely applied in construction activities for its light weight and insulation properties. Therefore it is used in concrete, to provide fire resistance, insulation and light weight concrete, ideal for building roof terraces and other applications such as filling void spaces. Expanded perlite properties provide solution to rising environmental concerns and do not have any negative impact on environment while mining of perlite. It can also blend with soil for filtration of storm water runoff and reduced rainwater surge. Increased demand for perlite-based products resulted in growth of processed crude perlite.
