Our materials made from optimised phlogopite mica have outstanding temperature resistance, chemical
resistance, electrical insulation and processing properties.
With the novamica® portfolio, we are supplying individual solutions for:
• Sealing at high temperatures up to 1000°C
• Sealing of aggressive / corrosive media at high temperatures
• Soft mica layers for metal gaskets
(e.g. grooved and spiral wound gaskets)
• Production of parts with filigree geometry
• Processability with all the standard methods (plotter, water jet, punch, shears, cutter)
Excellent material characteristics
The phlogopite mica used in the novamica® products resists temperatures of up to more than 1000°C.
Other mica materials are far less resistant. Muscovite mica starts to calcinate at about 600°C, for example,
while such structures as vermiculite that are similar to mica begin to calcinate at as low as 100°C.
With the material combination consisting of high-quality phlogopite mica, an efficient bonding system and
expanded metal (THERMEX), it is possible to produce premium solutions for a wide range of hightemperature applications.
