Expanded perlite is recommended as a carrier for pesticides, feed concentrates, herbicides, and other similar applications. As a carrier for feed concentrates, perlite will readily adsorb the concentrate while remaining free flowing (anti caking), and chemically resistant to microbiological degradation. The perlite also permits quick liquid movement between the carrier surface and the recipient of the feed concentrate.
Perlite has been approved in the past by organizations like the Association of American Feed Control Officials. It also has been approved to be used in the processing and filtration of both animal and human food, and is included in the Food Chemicals Codex 2nd Edition, Second Supplement. In the Food Chemicals Codex, perlite was approved for use as a filter aid or pressing aid in the processing of foods and feed ingredients, and also as an anti-caking agent.

Independent studies by a major UK research company show that Pumice Horticultural Media is the most effective product to be used for Hydroponics. The photo below shows the growth rate of the plant in 5 different medias. Pumice Horticultural media is second on the right showing the best growth rate in fresh and dry conditions;
Also below is a Apogee Plant Graph showing the performance of Pumice media against it competitors. You can see the pumice not only recorded best growth but also had the best recovery rate out of all 5 products used. The insulating properties of pumice make it ideal for roof systems by helping reduce heating costs in winter and assisting with cooling during summer. Also this property increases the temperature of the plant food favouring plant nutrition and growth.
