Although many people don’t have a clue as to the real danger of using fireplaces and furnaces, companies such as Vitcas offer products especially designed to take on excessive heat conditions.

Therefore, in order to ensure maximum protection, special fire resistant products have to be used. Of course, it all starts with fireproof bricks and a refractory mortar in order to join them together. However, no fireplace or furnace could do without heat insulation. Perhaps the best insulating material is vermiculite for two main reasons. First of all, the materials in question occurs naturally in the shape of an aluminium-magnesium silicate which means no complex and expensive production methods are involved here.

The exfoliation process quite simply involves applying a lot of heat to the silicate which causes it to expand and that’s how a vermiculite board is born.
