Elmelin’s origins as industrial insulation experts go back to 1912. Crucially, our approach today is agile, adaptable, forward-thinking and innovative. With a firm foundation in manufacturing, we combine the solid roots of an established business with the dynamism required to meet the ever-changing challenges of the modern industrial landscape.

The business developed from a site processing mica in Walthamstow, London in 1912. We are proud of this heritage. Our current business has evolved on this site, with its own bespoke machinery and processing facilities. Over the years, we have broadened what we offer, from pure mica applications to high temperature thermal and electrical solutions.

To help us do this, we have a dedicated workforce of multi-skilled operators and craftsmen, many with long service. We are dedicated to continuity, so the current generation in the business ensures their skills are passed to the next.

Not only does Elmelin specialise Mica insulation and industrial laminates, but we also offer a range of non Mica-based products, including Elmtherm microporous insulation, gasketing and waterproofing applications.

This diversification is part of our flexible, responsive strategy, fulfilling the needs of our customers. We listen, we research, develop, prototype and implement.
