What is Flexible Mica Material?
Flexible MICA is a micanite entirely free of asbestos, which can be formed at room temperature. The material consists of micapaper impregnated with a heat resistant binder and polymerized by a heat treatment.
The micapaper used for producing flexible mica can either be mucsovite or phlogopite. The characteristics of these two materials are quite different. In fact, the most appropriate type of mica has to be chosen in order to obtain an optimum result in each application. Muscovite is harder, clearer in color and has a lower heat stability compared to phlogopite.
