Product Guide and Mixing

Mixing Instructions

Proper Mixing will assure the maximum yield and uniformity. Low shear, low RPM mixers (similar to plaster mixers) are recommended for best results.

Add all materials except perlite to mixer; then mix until this slurry is fairly uniform. About 2 minutes.

Excess water and under mixing may reduce yield and workability. Over mixing may degrade the perlite and increase concrete density, reducing yield. Optimum mixing cycle can usually be determined with one or two trial batches.

Krum Perlite
perlite
KRUM Horticultural Perlite is a specially processed, unique volcanic mineral with a long and enviable record of performance as a propagating and growing medium. Each white granule is comprised of tiny closed air cells or bubbles which account for KRUM's light weight, reflectivity, adsorptive capability, and superior insulating qualities. The surface of each granule is covered with tiny cavities providing a large surface area capable of retaining water, air, and nutrients. This physical structure makes KRUM Horticultural Perlite an ideal growing medium, providing optimum air-water relationships for efficient plant growth. KRUM is available in various gradations suitable for specific horticultural applications. >>Details
