- MICAFIL Vermiculite Micafil is a naturally occurring mineral expanded at high temperature to produce ultra lightweight aerated particles - 90% air by volume.
Completely fireproof, MICAFIL is free flowing and easy to install. It is ideal for thermal and acoustic insulation in lofts, between floors, interior cavity walls, pipe protection, garden use and packaging of liquid and hazardous goods. Micafil mixes with cement to form lightweight concrete - ideal for insulated floors screeds and filling around chimney flues and boilers. It may also be used with gypsum to produce a backing plaster.
SAFE TO USE
Everyone is concerned about the daily risks they take in handling materials. MICAFIL is fibre-free, non-irritant and safe, so there is no need to wear gloves, masks or take special precautions when handling it. It’s reassuring to know its so user friendly.
INTERNAL CAVITY FILL
MICAFIL can be poured into any cavity—between floors, in interior walls, under stair voids, in a way no other insulation material can. And because of its ultra lightweight, no pre-strengthening is required. Used in this way MICAFIL can make a significant contribution to the reduction of sound transference between rooms partitioned by stud and plasterboard walls.
The free running properties of MICAFIL make it simplicity in itself to install. Poured straight from the bag, it simply flows into and over all potential loss areas. Cover the whole loft floor with a continuous heat-trapping carpet of insulation material, level off, and the jobs done! Remember—there is nothing to cut, shape or fold, making it ideal protection around pipes or cables or for filling in awkward corners.
IMPROVING OLD INSULATION
In many homes where loft insulation has been installed for some time, there is often insufficient to meet today’s higher standards. In others it has deteriorated, slumped or was badly laid. MICAFIL is one of the easiest ways of improving this. It seals and covers over existing material to any depth and automatically fills gaps missed between the joists and original insulation
Used as an aggregate with Portland cement, Micafil forms an ultra lightweight concrete suitable for many non structural applications. Mix 1 bag Micafil with 1 bag cement dry before sprinkling over 23 litres of water whilst mixing.
FLOORS AND ROOF SCREEDS
Micafil concrete can be laid over many sub-bases to provide an insulated and resilient floor. It may be used to advantage over suspended floors, for infill to accommodate different levels, or where fire resistance is important. Always use a protective topping when used for floors.
FIREBACKS AND CHIMNEY LININGS
Micafil concrete is ideal as filler to insulate around flue linings, behind firebacks and around pipes when fitting heaters. Use also to fill between brickwork flue and lining.
HOME AND GARDEN
Mix Micafil 1:4 with compost to improve water holding of hanging baskets and patio tubs. Use Micafil to store fruit, bulbs and tubers. Micafil is an ideal barbeque base - it insulates, reflects heat and absorbs fat.
MICAFIL LOFT INSULATION - PRACTICAL TIPS
• To prevent vermiculite falling into the external wall cavity, it is advisable to block off the eaves with lengths of timber between the joists.
• Seal any holes in the ceiling through which pipes pass using an expanding foam aerosol (available from all good building suppliers.)
LAYING THE VERMICULITE
• Wearing a dust mask to prevent breathing any dust generated, pour MICAFIL Large Grade Vermiculite into the spaces between the joists and level out the vermiculite to the depth as specified by the current building regulations.
• For joists that are less than 150mm (6”) deep, lay the vermiculite level with the top of the joist.
• Vermiculite can be boxed in using loft boards. This provides easier access to the loft space area and prevents the vermiculite from being disturbed.
• If the cold water tank is in the loft, do not lay vermiculite below it. Heat from below can prevent the water from freezing in cold weather.
• Fix electrical cables above the level of the vermiculite to prevent their overheating.
• Vermiculite is not suitable for the insulation of external cavity walls.
