Pumice Stone

What is pumice stone?

The pumice stone (in Greek is called "Ελαφρόπετρα" the combination of the words ελαφρύς + πέτρα, meaning light + stone) is a porous volcanic mineral, chemically inert. It is created by the volcanic action and the porous of the material due to the voids created by the steam escape during cooling of the lava.

Typesof Pumice Stone

Because of its low weight and low density, its acoustic and other heat-insulating and sound absorbing properties it is an ideal aggregate for the creation of construction products, for soil mixture, for substrate, green gardens and many other uses. The granulometries we offer are different depending on the use.

Characteristics

Its inorganic character, its appropriate size grading, its durability, its chemical and mechanical characteristics and its low cost are significant advantages for its use in a variety of applications such as agriculture (hydroponic and non-crop farming), crafting applications, geotechnical construction, pharmaceutical and cosmetic uses. Pumice grains are very hard, because they are made of silicate material. This is why it is used as an excellent and unique material in the fabrication process of jeans. Pumice stone is proving to be a highly competitive material as it offers solutions even in difficult application problems.

01

Plant Nurseries

Ideal for substrate or mixed with potting soil

Its inorganic character, its appropriate size grading, its durability, its chemical and mechanical characteristics and its low cost are significant advantages for its use as a mixture of soil or as a substrate, it achieves excellent results. You can also find in cooperative nurseries and gardening stores, packed pumice in 5lt and 10lt sacks. Please contact us to let you know about the points of sale or contact us if you have a gardening or gardening shop and are interested in enriching your products.

02

Hydroponics

Suitable for substrate in hydroponic crops.

The use of pumice is indicated as a substrate for hydroponic crops of horticultural and floricultural plants. As a purely natural product, a chemically inert material of absolute purity, it allows for effective nourishment of the plant. Available on pallets of planting bags (for professional or private use) or in big bags.

03

Green roofs

Green roofs, planted roofs or rooftops.

Pumice is a unique natural product for protecting the environment, upgrading the surrounding area, increasing the greening of urban or industrial fabrics, increasing the energy efficiency of buildings, reducing energy consumption and reducing noise pollution. It is an ideal product for applications such as planted roofs, green roofs, rooftops. Available in pallets or big bags. Graded size is tailored to the needs of each project.

04

Washing-out jeans

Suitable for fabrication process, especially of jeans

Pumice has hard granules because they are made of silicate. For this reason, it is used as an excellent and unique material in the process of spinning fabrics and mainly jeans. In this way the jean fabrics acquire lighter color.
