packing insulation, horticultural soils, soil conditioning, and soil fertilization
were applications of the exfoliated vermiculite produced by J. J. Brouk &
Co. and W. R. Grace & Co. in plants in St. Louis. The quantity of
exfoliated

The value, however, increased as the unit value of the exfoliated vermiculite
increased about 6%. Fireproofing was also a use of the material.
