It is surprising to know that we come across high temperatures on a daily basis but we don’t quite realise it. For example, while sitting next to a lovely fireplace on a winter evening we don’t really think about the danger the fire and excessive heat can cause.

The expansion that appears as a result of the heat treatment and the resulting materials is then used for heat insulation purposes. Of course, sometimes it is sensible to use its bulk form but most of the time vermiculite is processed to boards for easier management.
