What is Mica Powder?
Mica is a natural silicate stone mineral with shiny flakes, that gives off a glittery metallic appearance. Mica can also be used to give a glittery pearl-like effect to projects as well. Mica is used as a paint extender to brighten the tone of the pigmentation of the color.
Some electricians use Mica as thermal insulation for electrical equipment because it’s extremely fireproof, non- flammable, infusible, and is known to resist temperatures of up to 1000 degrees Celsius/1832 degrees Fahrenheit. Because it belongs to a very essential large group of minerals, Mica is safe and effective and can be used in various projects and applications.
