MICA (Silicone Bonded Mica) MICA (Silicone Bonded Mica)

Mica is an alumino-silicate with exceptional physical, electrical, mechanical, and thermal

characteristics with primary applications being in the area of high-volume and high-temperature

electrical insulation. It has found extremely successful application as a replacement for asbestos

based sheets in the construction and maintenance of electrical induction and arc furnaces, as well

as many other high-temperature applications. It is also a mechanically strong material utilized in applications where continuous temperatures range as high as 500ºC, or in short term environments of 600ºC.


Characteristics:

Its composition is approximately 90% uncalcined Muscovite or Phlogopite paper and 10% cured high temperature silicone binder.

Color: Silver/grey material

Radiation Resistant                     Excellent punching qualities
