Mica is a naturally occurring phyllosilicate. Due to the platy nature of the material, IMERYS mica 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. In plastics markets
, mica enhances flexural modulus and heat deflection temperature, making it an ideal reinforcement for PP and nylon composites. It is chemically inert and resistant to thermal decomposition. Mica is used in aqueous applications such as joint compounds, sealants and adhesives.
