How PSI Marine Panels with a Thermax core are manufactured.

PSI Marine Panels with a Thermax core are made from vermiculite (aluminum-iron-magnesium-silicate), a natural inorganic mineral belonging to the mica-minerals group.

Raw vermiculite is exfoliated by a high temperature heat treatment in the production process and expands to a lightweight aggregate, which is blended with inorganic binders and pressed to form boards.

Our boards do not contain asbestos or other mineral fibers and are non-toxic.
