Overview

Vermiculite is a heat-resistant material often used to make kiln furniture, and kiln dams. Bullseye Vermiculite Board is stronger and more durable than most fiberboard and can be cut and tooled like wood or particleboard.

Before using Bullseye Vermiculute Board, be sure to pre-drill any attachment points before screwing pieces together. Driving screws directly into the boards may make them bloat or crack. As always, whenever generating dust, work in a well-ventilated area and wear a NIOSH-approved respirator.
