Insulation Solutions for Tooling

High temperature mica-based insulation for tooling manufacture

Insulation is an essential enabler of processes and day to day working across many industries, whether it’s a production line or an individual requiring protective tools. When it comes to specialist tooling, Elmelin provides adaptable solutions including mica-insulated heat guns, machined parts and non-mica electrical insulation

Mica’s adaptability and versatility as a natural mineral substance means that it is ideally suited to the manufacture of specialist insulated tooling. Our mica manufacturing capabilities mean we can machine-cut mica shapes and punch mica parts to order.

Mica-insulated heat guns

Heat guns are an essential tool in many industries. They are used in engineering, material science and various laboratory and workshop settings. Mica has excellent heat insulation and thermal resistant properties and can withstand temperatures of up to 1200°C, making it extremely well-suited for heating elements. Mica-based elements in heat guns use ceramic-based mica as an enclosing insulation around the element, which then allows it to emit concentrated heat in a confined space. The enclosing mica tube ensures a uniform distribution of heat – essential for heat guns in a variety of applications and situations.

Customised mica components and parts

Our mica machined specialist tooling includes customised fixtures and jigs for semi-conductor manufacturing. Machined parts include fixtures for lathes, and for grinding and milling. Other complex machined parts comprise gaskets, washers, flanges, discs and tubes – all essential industrial processing components.
Elmelin also manufactures punched mica parts to meet the unique specifications of our clients across a range of industries and sectors.
