What is Vermiculite?

Vermiculite is a naturally occurring mineral that expands to 8 to 30 times its original size when heated to a high temperature. Expanded forms of vermiculite are lightweight, fire-resistant, and odorless, making it an ideal material for attic and wall insulation inside houses and buildings. Vermiculite appears in the form of pebbly or porous shiny flakes.

Why is Vermiculite Hazardous?

From 1919 to 1990, a mine in Libby, Montana, was the primary source of more than 70% of vermiculite sold within the United States under the brand Zonolite. The same mine also contained deposits of asbestos, thus contaminating all of the vermiculite being harvested there, as asbestos has since been discovered to include toxic properties linked to cancer and respiratory issues. Anyone with vermiculite insulation in their building today should assume it is contaminated with asbestos.
