Questions & Answers

Can this be used to insulate concrete blocks?

Ganular insulation or loose fill insulation. Every thing i find on the subject says perlite or vermiculite
Asked by: Kc8ghn
Perlite can be mixed with concrete, to form lightweight concrete with insulative value. Also, perlite absorbs water from the concrete mix, which causes it to set faster. Then it leaches out the absorbed moisture inside the concrete, helping keep it moist longer, which results in harder, stronger concrete. Fresh concrete needs moisture to finish curing, and should be sprayed the covered with plastic to keep it damp for a period of 2-4 days, 28 days is even better. Perlite in the mix helps keep it damp from the inside for the critical first 48 hours. OR, you can put a lot of perlite in the mix with the purpose of making lightweight concrete, which also has significant insulating value, but less strength that regular concrete. You can google "perlite concrete" and learn a lot in a hurry. OR, if you're asking about building a concrete block wall then filling the voids with perlite, the answer is "No". You can cast concrete blocks with insulating value, but if you are talking about just filling the voids in cinder blocks by pouring in perlite, you'd do better to just pour them with sand and cap them over with Quikcrete about 4" thick. OR, you could mix up some perlite concrete and pour that in, though you'd need the blocks to be mortared water tight to hold the slurry that you'd be pouring in.

what grade size is this? (fine/medium/coarse)

what grade size is this? (fine/medium/coarse)
Asked by: MARK
GOOD, VERY IMPORTANT, QUESTION. Viagrow SHOULD GIVE the STANDARD NUMBER GIVEN to DIFFERENT SIZES OF PERLITE. #3 is the COARSE perlite (perfect for larger containers), #1 is almost like dust, and #2 SHOULD be SMALL PIECES, but some manufacturers include have dust-like sizes in their bags.

Yes, though you can also buy high-temp mortar in a caulking-gun cartridge on this website. https://www.homedepot.com/p/Rutland-10-3-fl-oz-Fireplace-Mortar-Cartridge-in-Gray-63G/202218154

Rated 4 out of 5 by from Must have for successful landscaping I use this just about every time when doing landscape installation or tilling vegetable garden. Almost anyways have to add amenities to my customers landscape beds or gardens so the plants, shrubs or vegetables will grow properly, since they for most part don't have the correct soil composition or consistency.. Perlite is a good amenity to add to the soil because it absorbs and holds the water in the soil; with red clay the water just runs off, sandy soil it just drains down too deeply. My customers soil normally require a mixture of compost, top soil, peat and Perlite. All of these hold water very well, which allows roots to access it when needed. I spread on top of the soil with any other amendments needed after evaluating existing soil content and then tilled it in so that it is mixed very well. I also add to potting soil, since there normally isn't enough in it for planters or to start my vegetables in the spring.

I dont know why this brand of perlite is getting so many positive reviews but I do see that others had the same problem as me. This brand is way too fine. "Coarse" is by far the most commonly used grade, and this isn't coarse. The really bad thing is that it doesn't say on the bag what grade it is and good luck getting a straight answer from anyone in the store which I totally understand since it isn't visible through the bag. I'm stuck with two bags that I cant use! I love Home Depot but I sure wish they would start carrying a different brand of perlite.

Rated 5 out of 5 by from great for indoor and outdoor planting I love this stuff. Perlite is normally used for water-retention, but I use it more for lightening. For outdoor planters, I mix it with my super garden soil to make cheap outdoor-grade potting soil. I use about 1/4 perlite to lighten the weight of large planters. You can put a layer of it in the bottom as well. I also add it to sterile bought potting soil for indoor plants, as there never seems to be enough. It is especially useful for hanging planters where weight is an issue. Four cubic feet is a lot of perlite, but I've already gone through about a third of it repotting all the big stuff on the patio. The discarded soil gets tilled back into the garden and re-enriched next year.
