Mica has been recognized as a unique inorganic filler because of its exceptional properties which are not found in any other fillers. The addition of mica in plastic polymers significantly improves its material properties, increases its life long durability and enhances its functional, morphological and surface characteristics.
Some of the properties and characteristics of Mica are:
Our Mica is known for its dimensional stability, low water absorption, increased stiffness and improved heat distortion temperature of plastic composites used in automotive applications. It improves the physical properties of
Rubber industry commonly uses inorganic fillers such as calcium carbonate, talc, clay, etc., to improve the functionality of some rubber products. While it improves some functionality, it also weakens some of the performance. But use of mica powder products in rubber products as multi-functional filler improves the overall performance. The rubber manufacturers who manufacture tyre, tape, rubber sheet, hose, automotive rubber accessories and other products use mica powder which has good processing performance and can replace 30-50% of the semi-reinforcing or other coarse particles like carbon black and can also improve the friction properties of products. For example: the use of wet ground mica powder can enhance the greenhouse vulcanized silicone rubber (RTV silicone rubber) tensile strength, elongation at break and other mechanical properties, while the process performance is also better.
Performance of Mica powder used in rubber products is as follows:
In Automobile Sector : Used in Brake Lining, Plastic Fillers, Plastic compounding, Tyres , Water proof compound, Jointing compound, Paints , Heat resistant compound etc.
|Plastic||Improve rigidity and heat-resistance, reduce warpage and shrinkage, provide vibration|
suppression and barrier
|Rubber||Improving hardness and heat-resistance, provide vibration suppression, improving heat-resistance and performance of mold release|
