Ultrafine Mica powder

Ultrafine Muscovite Mica is extensively used as a pigment extender in various paints and coatings. It is a tough, flexible and transparent mineral that can be ground to less than a micron sieve mesh.
It is an anti-friction, anti-fouling, anti-settling, anti-corrosive, anti-tar mish and anti-siege agent. The overlapping layers of mica platelets form a tough shield that improves paint integrity and durability.
Mica acts as a reinforcing pigment to reduce cracking, peeling and checking in the dry film and prevents shrinkage and sheering of the paint. When a paint starts to fall, mica holds it together sufficiently to keep it away from cissing, curtaining and prevents microscopic ruptures in the paint films.
Mica particles brighten the tone of the colored pigments, at the same time, transmit and reflect light resulting in proven decorative effects and design. It increases the gloss of paint more effectively than spherical or irregularly shaped filler particles of an equivalent size product. Mica also optimizes the effect of other pigments by ensuring that the pigment particles are evenly spaced in the dried paint film.
Mica is widely used in all types of paints and coatings.
