Dec 05, 2017 · Coarse vermiculite, being noncombustible and heat tolerant, offers an excellent alternative to expensive refractory bricks in the base of the oven. It can also be used as a 510cm insulating layer in the dome of the oven, mixed with clay or concrete in a 6:1 ratio. Vermiculite is light and porous and is, therefore, an excellent heat insulator.

The common nonstructural lightweight aggregates (ASTM C332) are vermiculite and perlite, although scoria and pumice can also be used. These materials are used in insulating concretes for soundproofing and nonstructural floor toppings. Lightweight aggregates produce concrete with low thermal conductivities, which equate to good fire protection.
