SW-MICANITE RIGID M & P
rigid mica sheets

Application:

SW-MICANITE RIGID M & P sheets are specially developed
for providing outstanding thermal and electrical insulation for
various heating elements used in household and industrial
appliances such as hair dryers, tumble dryers, strip heaters,…
and for all other applications where excellent resistance to
thermal, mechanical and electrical properties are required.

Fire resistance classification UL94 (94 V-0), BS 479 (class 1),
NBN 21-203 (A1). NFF16-101/2 (M0 u. F0), IEC 60371-3-3
conformity.

Supply Form:

Thickness: 0.10 – 1.90 mm ± 0.05 mm
Size: 1000 mm width, max. 2400 mm length ± 1.0 mm
Customized strips or punched parts according to customers’
drawings and/or requirements.

“SSQ” Special Surface Quality:

SW-MICANITE RIGID M & P “SSQ” is a rigid mica sheet (Muscovite alternatively Phlogopite) with a higher density, a higher flexural strength and a smoother surface (obtained by steel pressing). The “SSQ” quality is most suitable for punching highly detailed pieces or when imprinting is required.
