How do we machine mica parts? We get asked this question all the time. For sheet stock under .080″ thick, it is advised we use common stamping or punching methods to make parts. We can control tight tolerances per your drawing. Thicker parts require the use of CNC machining, laserjet or waterjet. Contact the experts at Axim Mica to review all options.
Will Mica conduct electricity? The simple answer is NO. Mica has superior dielectric properties, which means it can transmit electrical force without conduction, which makes it an excellent insulator.
Are Mica sheets form-able? Yes. We now have the capability to form complex 3D molded mica parts. Since 2012, we have formed over 55 million parts across various emerging industries.
What are some common Mica uses in everyday life? Mica is used in blushes, lipsticks, lip gloss, eye liner, eye shadow, foundation. Also in common uses- It’s in every single Microwave oven
