Mica

MicaMica is a naturally occurring phyllosilicate. Due to the platy nature of the material, the mica Wolf has sourced has excellent flexural and bridging characteristics, which contribute to crack resistance in coating applications. This platy nature also enhances release performance in applications such as rubber molding and sheet production. Also, in plastics markets, mica enhances the flexural modulus and heat deflection temperature, making it an ideal reinforcement for polypropylene and nylon composites. It is chemically inert and resistant to thermal decomposition. Mica can also be used in aqueous applications such as joint compounds, sealants and adhesives.
