Mica Sheets

Mica Sheets are the foundation from which mica parts are made. Depending on your application, the correct mica sheet for an application depends on the material: Muscovite, or Phlogopite. Depending on the level of heat resistance needed, the thickness of mica sheet will also vary. Mica sheets are not uniform, and they can be ordered in various sizes and different degrees of smoothness based on the needs of the customer.

Application

Ax-THERM M & P mica sheets are used for high-performance thermal and electrical insulation in a broad range of industries such as

  • heating elements for electrical & thermo mechanical equipment
  • construction of induction, arc or high frequency furnaces
  • high voltage applications
  • high thermal applications
  • industrial sealing & gasket industries (e.g. oil & gas distribution)

Ax-THERM M & P mica sheets are the ideal alternative for asbestos insulations.

Good resistance to high temperatures & chemicals, low heat conductivity, high dielectric strength, good high-voltage proof performance. Fire resistance classification UL94 (94 V-0), BS 479 (class 1), NBN 21-203 (A1).

Composition

Ax-THERM M & P mica sheets consist of 85 – 90% high-grade Muscovite alternatively Phlogopite mica paper impregnated with an outstanding high temperature resistant silicone resin.
