What is vermiculite?
Like asbestos, vermiculite is also a naturally occurring mineral with various properties that are advantageous to the construction industry.
The main property that makes vermiculite so attractive is its ability to handle very high heat. More importantly, when vermiculite reaches extreme temperatures, it simply changes state rather than combusting. This makes vermiculite an excellent material for insulation, and it can be commonly found in attics or wall cavities throughout Nanaimo, Victoria, and Vancouver Island.
