CAS No: 12001-26-2
EINECS No: 601-648-2
Formula: KAl2((OH,F)2AlSi3O10)
It is chemically inert and resistant to thermal decomposition. Mica is used in aqueous applications such as joint compounds, sealants and adhesives.
Muscovite is a functional extender that improves crack resistance and reduced film permeability. It also promotes adhesion in both water and solvent-based formulations.
Muscovite is specified to brighten the tone of colored pigments and offers decorative effects. Мuscovite finds application in paints, plastics, welding electrodes, wall board joint compounds, etc.
In the paint industry mica is used as a pigment extender treduces chalking, prevents and weathering, and brightens the tone of colored pigments. Mica also promotes paint adhesion in aqueous and oleoresinous formulations. Consumption of dry-ground mica in paint is its second largest use.
Rubber Industry uses ground mica as an inert filler and a mold release compound in the manufacture of molded rubber products, such as tires and roofing. The platy texture acts as an ant blocking, ant sticking agent.
The plastics industry uses dry-ground mica as an extender and filler, especially in parts for automobiles for lightweight insulation to suppress sound and vibration.
