When are Mica Sheets Used?

When are Mica Sheets Used?

As a versatile form of the natural mineral mica, mica sheets are used in a broad way across different sectors.

 

For various industries, mica sheets provide the ideal means of harnessing mica’s excellent insulation qualities, its strength and its chemical resistance. With the availability of varying thicknesses of sheet, in both rigid and flexible form, mica is both extremely resilient and superbly adaptable.

What are Mica Shapes?

What are Mica Shapes?

Wondering what are mica shapes? Mica shapes are an example of the sheer versatility of this naturally-occurring mineral. Not only does mica have excellent insulation and thermal conductivity properties, but it is also both adaptable and durable in rigid sheet form.

 

We can manufacture mica can into different shapes, making it an ideal material for vital parts and components in various processes, devices and machinery.

 

This means that mica’s technical properties are applicable across different sectors and in diverse settings, depending on individual requirements. Elmelin provides shaped insulation using patterns, moulds, and machine cutting, pressing and stamping processes.

 

The finished results can be found in machinery, equipment and other devices, and as essential electrical components.

Elmelin’s Prototyping Capabilities

Elmelin’s Prototyping Capabilities

Elmelin’s prototyping capabilities mean that we can provide our varied customer-base with ways to fine-tune their requirements, while bringing down production costs and ironing out any potential problems or issues. Prototyping is both a critical evaluation tool for production, and a means of safeguarding against delays or disruptions which might otherwise be costly and damaging, both financially and reputation-wise.

 

Here, we look at why prototyping is so important, and the various uses of it. As such, prototyping is a capability with multiple functions, offering an enhanced service to businesses operating in different sectors.

High Temperature Insulation for Fire Protection

High Temperature Insulation for Fire Protection

High temperature insulation is not only about helping industries maintain efficiency, or ensuring electrical devices function consistently. It plays a key role in fire protection.

 

Fire protection is something we specialise in, and our mica-based and microporous high temperature insulation products and technology cut across many industries, providing essential safeguarding against fire risks in various situations and settings.

Insulation for the Aerospace Industry

Insulation for the Aerospace Industry

Elmelin proudly manufacture and supply insulation for the aerospace industry. Safety is a paramount priority when it comes to commercial air travel, and while flight security is important, so is high temperature insulation. Aircraft routinely face extreme conditions but must maintain their mechanical stability, while ensuring the safety of passengers and flight staff.

 

Any solutions to airborne transport must also take weight into consideration, as well as strength and resistance.

 

Because it is both lightweight and strong, alongside its superior insulation and thermally resistant qualities, mica is the perfect match for high temperature insulation in the aerospace industry.

Industrial Insulation and Environmental Issues in Automotive Industries

Industrial Insulation and Environmental Issues in Automotive Industries

There is no escaping the fact that road transport is a major cause of greenhouse gas emissions, producing around 15% of CO2 emissions in the EU. One of the ways vehicle manufacturers can help bring these emissions down is through the application of industrial insulation.

 

Elmelin supports the automotive industry and vehicle manufacturers and, in so doing, helps environmental protection through contributing to efficiency and excellence in performance.
