You are here: MATERIALS > Mica

Naturally occurring, complex aluminium silicates, characterised by laminar morphology and near-perfect basal cleavage. The structure possesses a high degree of flexibility, elasticity and toughness. Excellent thermal stability and chemical resistance.



BELPA MICA for high temperatures is made of shelly Mica compressed in sheets reinforced with perforated stainless steel 316 without binder.

This material is suitable for high temperature gaskets at low pressures and it is specially designed for services where high temperatures combined with fluids could promote the oxidizing process of materials such as graphite.

Recommended for high temperature turbines, turbochargers, heat exchangers, hot dry gas applications and in general for high temperature services. In automotive industry, it is suitable to be used in exhaust manifolds and engines. It is also recommended for chemical and petrochemical industry and refining plants where high temperature operations are carried out (mainly pyrolysis and catalysis processes).
