Vitcas offer includes really wide range of materials and products, including of course also vermiculite boards.
Basically speaking vermiculite board consists of two elements: the board itself and vermiculite, which has several very interesting properties – it is also worth to note that vermiculite is a naturally occurring layer of aluminiun and magnesium silicate and its most important feature is the fact that it expands if exposed to heat.

After exposing vermiculite to heat for a precisely set amount of time the resulting material is often used to cover boards with fireproof or fire resistant surface in the press forming process. Vermiculite board is a result of this process – these boards are very easy to work with( simple wood working tools are enough )ahile simultanbeously they are significantly stronger than typical ceramic fibre boards.
