Vermiculite is a mineral similar to mica. During Exfoliation, Vermiculite is subjected to intense heat and expands up to twenty or more times its original size. As Exfoliation occurs, millions of microscopic gaps are created within the plates which give Vermiculite excellent insulation and water retention properties. Vermiculite is lightweight, air entraining and highly absorbent. It is inert and does not harm the environment. It is chemically neutral and sterile immediately after exfoliation.
