Geek Speak

Lightweight perlite is a heavyweight in the insulation industry. It is a naturally occurring siliceous rock that expands from four to 20 times its original volume when heated to more than 1600˚F. According to The Perlite Institute, expanded perlite is widely used in low temperature and cryogenic applications because of its low thermal conductivity, ease of handling, relative low cost, non-flammability, and low moisture retention.
