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