Knauf Performance Materials is known for its almost limitless range of applications as well as its state-of-the-art product technology, intelligent systems and service-oriented ideas and practices. Perlite — the material from the volcano Natural raw material for fills and more.
Perlite is a rock originating from volcanic lava. Through our share in a mine on the Greek Cycladic island of Milos — the best-known perlite mining area in Europe — we can access this valuable raw rock that we ship directly to Rotterdam and Dortmund. A special quality of the raw perlite from Milos is its specific crystal-water content, which makes it highly expandable. Depending on the requirements of the end product, we refine this raw material for various industries and applications.
Perlite is light, non-combustible and meets the requirements of the A1 building material class in accordance with DIN Thanks to its uniform expansion and low dust content, perlite is particularly well suited to all types of fill and mortar and is offered in its pure form as well as enhanced for specific applications — coated with paraffin, silicone or special bitumen, for instance.
But perlite not only has excellent insulating properties, it can also be used in many other areas of application; for example, in the chemical and pharmaceutical industries. Free of organic components, the material is biologically inert and impervious to aging, rot, shrinkage and vermin.
Perlite lasts forever, so to speak.
