A couple of unbearable heatwaves and a LOT of rain: yes, that was another Great British summer! Autumn is now just around the corner and that means it's time for profes­si­onals and DIYers alike to stock up on the building materials and accessories they're going to need for the coming season. We've got it all here at Greengate's, your local builders merchant.

This edition of our blog showcases some of the products you might need as autumn begins...

Micafil: Vermiculite Fill Insulation

Here at Greengate's, we stock a compre­hen­sive collection of insulation materials from rigid and polystyrene to fibreglass and multifoil. One of the most versatile of these insulation products is Micafil, which is made using the naturally-occurring mineral vermiculite. To create Micafil, high-quality vermiculite is put through a high-temperature process that causes the particles to expand and fill with air. This results in a free-flowing insulative mixture that is easy to pour straight from the bag over and into any area vulnerable to heat loss.

Micafil is a fibre-free, non-irritating and fireproof formula that can be used for multiple insulation appli­cations, such as between floors, in interior cavity walls, in lofts and for protecting pipes. It can also be mixed with cement to create lightweight concrete that can be used for insulation behind boilers, between chimney flues and for insulating floor and roof screeds.
