About this deal

Perlite insulation is used in high temperature applications in the steel and foundry industries such as ladle topping, hot topping and risering.

SwiftAir coated expanded perlite is a hydrophobic insulating aggregate. This water repellent, non-flammable, loose-pour insulant improves the thermal performance on masonry walls and floors.

Perlite is widely utilized in the washing of textiles, particularly denim garments. It imparts a "stonewashed" or "stoned" aesthetic onto clothing items, and facilitates the alteration of surface textures and hues without causing corrosion or clogging of machinery. It is also noted for its lightweight properties which make handling and application easier.

Perlite standard is lightweight, density approximately 100kg/m 3. It is supplied in 100 litre bags by Sinclair Professional. Ideally have a breathing mask when using the product. A lot of fine dust particles will be released into the air when you start pouring it out of the bag. While not immediately life threatening, it’s always best to avoid breathing any of it in. To avoid this spray or wet the perlite slightly before you begin tipping it out of the bag. Expanded perlite is a white, ultra-lightweight aggregate ranging from a very fine powder to an aggregate with a particle size up to 5mm in size. It is inorganic, inert, neutral in pH, biologically stable and has no asbestos content. It has excellent thermal insulation properties over an extremely wide temperature range from cryogenics at minus 273°C (absolute zero) up to refractory applications at over 1000°C. It also has a highly adsorbent surface and a very low bulk density, which makes it an ideal carrier or low cost filler for many compound formulations. Perlite is a white, ultra-lightweight aggregate ranging from a very fine powder to an aggregate with a particle size up to 5mm in sizePerlite is used as a standalone growth medium, as well as a way to enhance soil mixes. Made from an amorphous volcanic glass, it has a relatively high water content.

AUSPERL is pleased to offer various grades of perlite ore from which expanded perlite products are produced.Perlite is a substrate used to improve the physical properties of the soil. It is used to create optimal soil conditions, increase density, reduce drainage and preserve moisture, provide a good breeding ground for seedlings and ensure excellent aeration. Specifically, it is used for agriculture, horticulture, greenhouse cultivation, and sports fields. SwiftAir exfoliated vermiculite and expanded perlite are absorbents and carriers. Each of these unique minerals have their own characteristics.

Although Perlite is a fantastic method to increase aeration, because of its porous nature, it does (to a degree) hold on to a certain amount of water simply from the huge surface area that it possesses. If used as a standalone media however, irrigation frequencies need to be dramatically increased, as its water holding capacity is by no means anywhere close to a media like soil or coco. HOW TO USE PERLITE Perlite, due to its low density, minimal volume, physical resilience, chemical stability, fire resistance, and low acoustic permeability, is a necessity for a variety of applications, including usage in agriculture, construction, water filtration, and more.As a heat insulation material in industry; Reactors up to 1000° can benefit from Perlite (Standard Grade) insulation. It is an ideal material for cold storages, LPG, LNG, liquid oxygen, liquid nitrogen, ammonia, liquid propane, ethane, methane, liquid noble gases, propellants and refrigerants. Additionally, it makes an effective additive for ceramics and glass production. In the food industry, Perlite (Standard Grade) 2-5mm is used for straining fruit juices, vegetable edible oils, sugar syrup, corn sherbet (producing glucose I dextrose), beer, wine and liquors. It is also used for filtration of dyes, white water filtration in the paper industry, antibiotics, pectin, citric acid, soda ash solutions, sodium silicate (water glass), sulfuric acid, uranium sherbet, floccine in hydroxide and flocculation processes, as well as phosphoric acid leaching. Additionally, it is suitable for drinking water filtration, swimming pool water filtration, waste water cleaning and filtration processes, and machine oil filtration (regeneration of used machine oils). As a filler i n the p h a r maceut i ca l and chemical i ndust ry; Perlite (Standard Grade) 2-5mm is suitable for many applications, including veterinary and human healthcare drugs, pesticides, cleaning powders, fertilizers, dynamite production and high-performance paint with large surface area coverage. It is also used in the cosmetics industry, such as soaps.
