As you’re no doubt aware – insulation can be made of a whole host of other materials – fibreglass, cellulose, mineral wool. That being said, mica has very unique properties that make it an excellent choice as a basis for insulation in a range of industrial applications.
Here we’re going to look at a particular form of mica – muscovite mica – its properties and how it’s used by the industry and by Elmelin to make a variety of processes safer and more efficient. …
Elmelin specialises in an innovative range of microporous high-temperature insulation materials that are used in a wide range of applications – including aircraft, military vehicles, nuclear power plants and furnaces. These materials are designed to give superior performance in all conditions. …
As foundries continue to evolve, new technology and safety measures are rapidly being adopted. For some time, insulation has been at the heart of the evolution of this technology – with mica-based insulation materials playing an essential role in supporting the foundry processes.
This story could be titled the evolution from the industrial revolution to the CNC machine age. Elmelin has been around long enough and has evolved enough times to have processes from both. Our core competence is one of reinvention. At its heart is mica.
This blog looks at the challenges the petrochemical industry faces when it comes to the environment. It also specifically focuses on the part that microporous technology and mica products play in helping the industry meet these challenges.
In this blog, we will outline the growing need for high temperature insualtion in the petrochemical industry. The global market in high temperature insulation materials is growing. Statistics MRC has reported that it accounted for $3.6 billion in 2017, and predicting that this figure will reach $7.9 billion by 2026.
