Vermiculite Void Fill
Known as Micafil, expanded vermiculite is a 100% natural material that can be used for void fill. Being with features like lightweight, fireproof, and absorbent, it is the ideal loose fill void packing and cushioning material suitable for many packaging needs, especially for transporting dangerous and fragile goods due to its high absorbency and resistance to chemicals.
Expanded vermiculite is absolutely eco-friendly void fill packing material, which can be easily poured around irregularly shaped objects and provides a cushion against shock during handing and transportation.
Why Use Vermiculite as a Void Fill Packing Material?
Lightweight Packing Material
Expanded vermiculite is widely used in the shipping industry as a packing material. It is lightweight, Because it is lightweight, it does not drive up shipping costs.
Clean and Easy to Pour
It is also clean and easy to pour around objects inside boxes. It protects products against impact and mishandling during the shipping process, and because it is non-abrasive, it is safe to use with items that may be scratched by other materials.
Vermiculite is also highly absorbent and safely retains leaks that may occur while a package is in transit. Because of its effectiveness as an absorbent, it is commonly used when shipping hazardous materials.
Eco-friendly Void Fill Packing
Vermiculite is a natural product, safe to be disposed of and environment-friendly, even at the end of its journey as a packaging aid (or it may end up in somebody’s garden due to its excellent horticultural applications).
While other materials–like Styrofoam packing peanuts–can take centuries to break down in landfills, vermiculite degrades naturally, making it less harmful to the environment.
The same applies for shipping hazardous materials, fragile products, electronics, pharmaceuticals, medical products and chemicals. Vermiculite is easy to use and can be poured around objects with irregular shapes.
Safe Cushioning and Padding Solution
The use of vermiculite void fill is compulsory for all shipments of liquids by air when additional means of sealing off is not employed or proves to be impractical. The absorbent, non-abrasive, lightweight, chemical resistance and superb cushioning properties provide an extremely safe means to ship products, especially when leakage could occur. Its use also conforms to rail and road requirements.
Golden and Silver Color with Full Range of Particle Size
Vermiculite used as the void fill packaging material is exfoliated vermiculite, which is carried out by passing raw vermiculite through a furnace chamber in a controlled manner. The volume can be increased rapidly by 8 to 15 times, up to 30 times, producing loose-textured expanded vermiculite, with the color changed into gold or silver.
