CONSTRUCTION GRADE PERLITE
In the construction industry, SunPerl perlite is widely used in Europe and the USA for its exceptional insulating properties in wall plasters and screeds. See our sister Company CemteQ.
The construction grade product is the aggregate used in high-temperature insulating refractory concretes. Perlite excels in these applications, due to its high melting point, low density and chemically inert nature.
HORTICULTURAL GRADE PERLITE
The agricultural industry uses Perlite as an effective soil-less growing media in hydroponic systems and in growing and potting mixes. It ensure adequate air-filled porosity and drainage for the plant roots.
Due to the fact that Sun Silicates manufactures both Perlite and Vermiculite and, since we have the ability to mix and bag in-house, we are in a unique position to supply premixed products custom-made to our customer’s requirements.
