Fitz Chem and Imerys would like to present two of our most successful micas - Suzorite® 200-HK & 200-S. Manufacturers specify phlogopite mica for applications requiring reinforcement and where greater resistance to moisture, heat, light or chemicals is needed. As a platy mineral, Imerys phlogopite mica offers beneficial rheological properties, is chemically inert, and provides the highest thermal stability of any mica. These properties render Imerys phlogopite micas excellent functional minerals for a broad range of applications, including: Plastic Composites: Substantially increases stiffness and heat resistance, while promoting dimensional stability and improving electrical insulation properties. Sound Damping: A damper for sound vibration transmission and offers weight reduction versus other minerals. Paint and Coatings: Provides improved barrier properties, assists in adhesion, and reduces cracking and checking. Adhesives and Sealants: Controls shrinkage and reduces cracking. The main difference between these 2 mica grades is that their mean particle size and aspect ratios are reversed: Mica Suzorite® 200-HK Suzorite® 200-S Mean Particle Size (µm)* 60 55 Aspect Ratio (Jennings) 55 60
