Vermiculite Packing Material

Vermiculite is the name given to a group of naturally occurring hydrated laminar minerals similar to mica. When processed in special furnaces, the mineral exfoliates (or expands) into the accordion-like layered particles.

Vermiculite cushion and absorbent material is used for shipping many hazardous liquids. It is non-flammable and does not emit fumes or odors.

Vermiculite is a naturally occurring, completely inert mineral with superior resistance to problems that occur in other forms of packaging materials.

Course grade vermiculite is lightweight and absorbs approximately 1 gallon of water* per cubic foot of material. It is the best absorbent material available for multi-purpose shipping and packaging.
