Muscovite is the most common form of mica. It’s a potassium-rich mica that usually combines with aluminum and water or a hydroxyl (hydrogen bonded to oxygen) to form thin sheets. – These sheets break along very closely spaced flat planes – creating very thin sheets. It has what’s called “perfect basal cleavage”
High-quality block mica is processed to line the gauge glasses of high-pressure steam boilers because of its flexibility transparency and resistance to heat and chemical attack. Only high-quality muscovite film mica which is variously called India ruby mica or ruby muscovite mica is used as a dielectric in capacitors.
Muscovite (also known as common mica isinglass or potash mica) is a hydrated phyllosilicate mineral of aluminium and potassium with formula K Al 2 (AlSi 3 O 10)(FOH) 2 or 2 (Al 2 O 3) 3 (SiO 2) 6 (H 2 O). It has a highly perfect basal cleavage yielding remarkably thin laminae (sheets) which are often highly elastic.
Muscovite or white mica has superior dielectric qualities and chemical resistance; phlogopite or green mica is generally softer and therefore adaptable for shaping and use in various manufacturing functions. Rigid mica sheets come pre-cut in 1.2m square or 2.4m rectangular dimensions.
Muscovite powder Our wet ground mica powder use good quality mica material in a manufacturing process with washing refining dipping grinding and crashing cold.
A large amount of Muscovite Mica Powder is formed in the late stage of acid magma crystallization and in the stage of pegmatite. It can also be generated during the process of alteration from high temperature to medium and low temperature.
