Expanded perlite, as the name suggests, is acquired through the expansion of raw perlite. Perlite is a hard and brittle siliceous volcanic mineral that resembles glass. Expanded perlite is a non-toxic, chemically inert, and stable material with excellent electrical, thermal, and audio insulation features. The material finds primary usage in the construction industry for insulation, in the beverages industry for filtration purposes, and in the horticulture industry as a soil aggregate.
