One embodiment relates to heating inter-layer water in vermiculite to expand the vermiculite.
Furthermore, the present invention also relates to tobacco which contains vermiculite, as well as the use of said vermiculite for producing articles for smoking and of tobacco.
A heat resistant product comprises a ceramic binder and vermiculite, wherein between 35 % and 95 % of the dry weight of the product is vermiculite having a particle size such that more than 60 % of the vermiculite does not pass through a 1 mm sieve.
The invention further relates to a lightweight construction element which simulates the appearance of granite and is prepared from a settable mixture of polymer casting resin, raw vermiculite, expanded vermiculite and resin hardener.
A process is proposed for producing non-combustible moulded articles from blown vermiculite, the blown vermiculite granules being gummed with an inorganic binder and then pressed.
The clay may or may not have an additional exfoliating treatment present prior to blending with the interpolymer.
The CEV component is at least partially derived from dry CEV.
The cylindrical ring seal can be made of stainless steel mesh impregnated with vermiculite or graphite.
The gasket has a core layer comprising exfoliated vermiculite.
The layer also comprises a hydrolysis-resistant polymer coupled to the vermiculite by a coupling agent.
The invention is concerned with gasket sealing foils having a sealing layer with enhanced properties which is based upon chemically exfoliated vermiculite.
This invention relates to the use of vermiculite and layer minerals in general in release films.
Furthermore, the invention enables a multi-layer structure to be combined with known heat-insulating materials such as vermiculite.
The clay mineral may be smectite, vermiculite, halloysite or any synthetic analog thereof, with a preference for the montmorillonite species of smectite clays.
Filter material comprising fabric of ceramic oxide fibers and vermiculite particulate.
