The Thermal Insulating Properties of Vermiculite

  title={The Thermal Insulating Properties of Vermiculite},
  author={Norman M. P. Low},
A study has been carried out to determine the thermal insulating properties of expanded vermiculite mineral in the form of loose particles and in the form of compressed vermiculite boards. Measurements show that the thermal con ductivity of the loose vermiculite particles is in the range of 0.0633-0.0738 w/(m °C) and these values were found to vary with the pouring density of the loose particles and also with the size of the particles. Studies also show that loose vermiculite particles can be… CONTINUE READING
