LISKUN-Mica is a mineral that offers a wide range of exceptional properties. For about fifty years, Mica has been involved in processing mica into industrial material, without changing it’s valuable natural characteristics.
As you read through the available information, you may find that some of the properties of mica could improve your own products. Please do not hesitate to contact us. We can offer a wide selection of materials based on mica, each of them meeting a series of specific requirements and designed for a particular application. We will be able to determine the material best suited to your requirements. If we cannot find one, we will meet with your engineers so that we can develop a new material to meet your needs.
This approach, emphasizing direct contact, has helped us adapt our products to the real world and has allowed us to create the materials of tomorrow, today.

Natural Mica

Natural mica has exceptional physical characteristics. It can be found throughout the world, most notably in the presence of Paleozoic rocks. Accessible deposits are located primarily in India, on the American continent, in southern Africa and in Russia.
Mica’s chemical composition places it in the aluminium silicates group. Two types are extracted – Muscovite, in which there is a predominance of potassium and Phlogopite, in which the presence of magnesium can be detected.
As a mineral, mica has a special characteristic – it can be cleft to obtain very thin flakes of constant thickness.




Mica can withstand temperature in excess of 1000°C/1830°F (Phlogopite), it is flame-retardant, non-flammable, does not give off fumes, and conducts very little heat, especially perpendicular to its strata.


Natural mica has a dielectric strength greater than 25kV/mm (625V/mil), has good resistance to arcing and electrical erosion, and is permeable to microwaves.


Mica is tolerant of water and most chemical agents, such as solvents, acids, bases and mineral oils.


has good compressive strength. It behaves well in the presence of tensile and bending stresses. It has a high modulus of elasticity.
