                                                                       Perlite Insulation
 Hydrophobic expanded perlite is a naturally occurring siliceous volcanic rock that is moulded into pipe and block
 forms. Perlite 650 is a high temperature insulation which displays exceptional corrosion inhibiting properties. A
 negative charge is present within the sodium silicate binder which draws the positive charge from the pipe. This
 acts as a protection barrier against moisture, oxygen, chlorides and other corrosive elements.

 Since perlite is a form of natural glass, it is classified as chemically inert and has a pH of approximately 7. Perlite
 650 benefits from meeting or exceeding the minimum physical property requirements of ASTM C 610. Perlite 650
 is asbestos-free and benefits from low thermal conductivity with a high compressive strength whilst acting as a
 strong rigid insulation. Also meets the requirements of ASTM C795 for Stress cracking on Stainless Steel.
