Natural and especially high-quality clay is what you can expect from Liapor Products.
This (up to) 180 million year old clay came into existence during the Age of Lias and forms the basis for Liapor Products.
Liapor offers a ceramic, pure mineral substrate made of expanded clay. It is especially suitable for hydroponics and can also be used for interior design, potted plants, drainage layers, as well as in the fields of ornamental plants and plant breeding.
Due to the production process, in a rotary kiln at a temperature of about 1,200 °C, Liapor® is germ-free as well as chemically and biologically neutral. Both the matched particle shape and the distribution of the pores have a capillary conductive effect. The substrate drains and supports gas exchange at the roots. Both cubic and round Liapor® are offered in particle size groups of 4/8, 8/16 mm and 10/20 mm. The loose bulk density ranges between 400 ± 50 and 550 ± 50 kg/m3.
All the Liapor expanded clays are environmentally sound, reusable and don’t burden the environment when they are cleaned up.
