PLASTIC & RUBBER SERIES

PLASTIC SERIES

Plastic Reinforced PP

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:

  • Its has an outstanding mechanical, thermal, electrical and chemical properties rarely found in any other products. The addition of Mica in Plastics normally increases its tensile and flexural strengths. Mica enhances the dielectric, heat resisting and insulating properties of Plastics.
Plastic Mica 1
  • It improves the principle of anti-permeability with the former. The main applications being automotive plastic fuel tanks (It is safer than metal fuel tanks), aerated beverage bottles (light and safe), pharmaceuticals, food, cosmetics and similar products packaging bottles and other packaging materials with air tightness requirements.
Electrical wires Plastics
  • It is transparent, flexible and elastic and can be ground to very fine particles with a high aspect ratio which are specially suited for reinforcing fillers.
  • It is chemically inert and can easily resist actions of heat, light, water, oil, solvents, alkalis and various chemicals.
  • It is strongly absorbent to ultra violet radiations, prevents penetrations of distractive sun rays, moisture, heat and atmospheric gases etc. and thereby helps to increase the service life and decorative value of the end products.
  • It serves to reinforce, stiffen, harden and strengthen the product and prevent the microscopic ruptures, reduce warping, increase service temperature, lower thermal and expansion and conductivity, improve electrical and vibration damping properties and adherence to substrate. It does not change colour at elevated temperatures or in the presence of resins and other minerals additives.

 

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

  • Polypropylene ( PP )
  • Polyethylene ( PE ) ,
  • PBT, PET, PPO and Nylon composites.

RUBBER SERIES

Rubber Series Mica 2

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.

Car Interiors Mica

Performance of Mica powder used in rubber products is as follows:  

  • Greatly improves the strength of the product. Reinforcement effect can be achieved as close as to the level of silica.      
  • Mica can be used to improve the dimensional stability of products, resistance to stress cracking, and enhance the toughness of products, anti-aging, anti-cracking, and enhance the wear resistance of products.    
  • Has excellent acid and alkali resistance, at the same time it has flame retardant and corrosion resistance and other characteristics.  
  • To improve the heat resistance of products and reduce shrinkage. Mica powder can improve the products resistance to gas swelling.  
  • The insulation properties of mica powder can improve the electrical properties of rubber products.

In Automobile Sector : Used in Brake Lining, Plastic Fillers, Plastic compounding, Tyres , Water proof compound, Jointing compound, Paints , Heat resistant compound etc.

PlasticImprove rigidity and heat-resistance, reduce warpage and shrinkage, provide vibration
suppression and barrier
