Natural Mica

Natural Mica Powder Exporter in Rajasthan

Mica is synthetically a Potassium aluminum silicate with a chemical equation [SiO2, Al2O3, K2O, Fe2O3, MgO, CaO, Hg2O]. It is depicted as quicker scattering, climate safe, serious level, and safe abnormalities. Mica is a dry, steamy powder, synthetically latent, invulnerable to climatic varieties, non-poisonous, extreme, and waterproof with brilliant non-stick properties. Mica responds emphatically to openness to light, heat, and electrical energy.

India is the greatest single beginning of mica in the world. The British Geological Survey indirect that the Koderma District in Jharkhand State in India had the world's greatest mica stores in 2005. China was the biggest mica maker with close to 33% of the worldwide offer, firmly followed by the US, South Korea, and Canada.Natural Mica Powder Exporter in Rajasthan.

It is utilized in paint, elastic, plastics, welding poles, printing materials, dry fire, extinguishers, lubes, oil boring, greases, glass and ceramic FLUX. Mica is likewise utilized in improving coatings on a backdrop, cement, plaster, and tile surfaces. It likewise is utilized as a fixing in motion coatings on welding poles, in a few exceptional lubes, and as coatings for center and shape discharge compounds, confronting specialists, and form washes in foundry applications. Dry-ground mica is utilized in auto brake linings and grasps plates to diminish commotion and vibration (asbestos substitute); as sound-engrossing protection for coatings and polymer frameworks; in building up added substances for polymers to expand strength and firmness and to further develop dependability to intensity, synthetic compounds, and bright (UV) radiation; in heat safeguards and temperature protection; in modern covering added substance to diminish the porousness of dampness and hydrocarbons; and in polar polymer, formulation to expand the strength of epoxies, nylons, and polyesters.

Mica is likewise utilized as a protector in the substantial block, home attics, and can be filled walls (ordinarily in retrofitting uninsulated open top walls). Mica may likewise be utilized as a dirt conditioner, particularly in fertilized soil blends and in planting plots. Lubes utilized for axles are made out of a compound of greasy oils to which mica, tar or graphite is added to build the sturdiness of the oil and give it a superior surface.

Industrial Applications:
  • Pearl pigment: Pigment are coated with mica to make pearl pigments.
  • Paper Industry:  For making wall paper and coated paper.
  • Paint Industry: To make good anti corrosive paint, primer, under coat, water based paints exterior coating, chemical resistant coating etc. Used in marine paints and aluminium paints. In the paint industry, ground mica is used as a pigment extender that also facilitates suspension, reduces chalking, prevents shrinking and shearing of the paint film, increases resistance of the paint film to water penetration and weathering, and brightens the tone of colored pigments. Mica also promotes paint adhesion in aqueous and oleoresinous formulations.
  • Plastic Industry: Used in plastic Industry as a filler an mica improves electrical and thermal resistance and boost in insulation properties. Mica has innumerable uses in many industries like fire extinguishers, oil drilling, construction chemical, building material, lubricants, adhesives, and foundries. The plastics industry used dry-ground mica as an extender and filler, especially in parts for automobiles as lightweight insulation to suppress sound and vibration. Mica is used in plastic automobile fascia and fenders as a reinforcing material, providing improved mechanical properties and increased dimensional stability, stiffness, and strength. Mica-reinforced plastics also have high-heat dimensional stability, reduced warpage, and the best surface properties of any filled plastic composite.
  • Well-drilling Industry: Ground mica is used in the well-drilling industry as an additive to drilling fluids. The coarsely ground mica flakes help prevent the loss of circulation by sealing porous sections of the drill hole.
  • Rubber Industry: The rubber industry used ground mica as an inert filler and mold release compound in the manufacture of molded rubber products, such as tires and roofing. The platy texture acts as an antiblocking, antisticking agent. As a rubber additive, mica reduces gas permeation and improves resiliency.
