Micanite sheets usually consists for about 90% of natural mica powder having 10% synthetic resin binder (silicone or epoxy) mixed together, which is processed into mica paper. The paper loose layers are compressed into a sheet material. This material is not transparent and has a silver-gray (muscovite micanite) or a dark gray/brown color (phlogopite micanite). The material has a high dielectric resistance. Micanite plates are an ideal alternative to asbestos sheets.
Temperature Muscovite micanite continuous 500°C, short term 800°C.
Temperature Phlogopite micanite continuous 700°C, short term 1000°C.
The material is suitable for an even higher temperature and/or other needs are available upon request.
