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.
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.
The natural cleavage qualities of mica in its mineral state make it ideally suited to production of smica sheets. This is where the mineral will break along smooth planes. Mica minerals have hexagonal atoms in sheet-like arrangements. Sheet mica is hugely versatile, whether rigid or flexible, and a wide range of industries use it. …
Mica is a critical contributor to many industries, businesses and manufacturing processes because of its natural qualities and benefits as an insulation material. However, before it gets to this stage, mica is a raw material, and in its natural form it must first be sourced and extracted through mining. …
Elmelin’s mica and microporous insulation products and solutions are used across a wide breadth of industries, in different industrial and commercial settings and situations. This reflects the sheer adaptability and flexibility of mica’s natural mineral properties, and of our commitment to finding the right solution for the businesses we serve.
Whether by surface or air, transport relies on high temperature insulation for safety and efficiency. Insulation benefits for transportation include heat shields, battery insulation, fire protection and insulation for data recorders.
Elmelin supports the aerospace and automotive industries, alongside other specialised transportation sectors, including the military. Our high temperature insulation solutions provide assurance and ensure safety in situations where extreme conditions are frequently a normal operating environment.
What is mica? Whilst mica may not be immediately familiar to many, however, it is a widely-used mineral in many industrial processes and different products.
Mica has various properties and multiple uses. Due to its high thermal resistance, it is an excellent industrial insulation material. It offers resistance to electricity, light and moisture, making it ideal for a range of applications across different sectors.
A significant aspect of human history and progress is the story of how we have harnessed and channelled what the natural world can offer us. This includes industrial minerals such as mica.
As high temperature insulation specialists, we manufacture different mica-based products, including mica roll and mica sheets, and we use mica in various thermal management solutions and other industrial insulation applications.
