Mica Blocks are available in various types Ruby mica blocks, Green mica blocks and can be cut according to the specifications required by the clients.
Our team of skilled technicians manually grade and cut the mica blocks to eliminate defects in the finished product.
These blocks are fabricated into a myriad range of products having numerous applications in diversified fields. The dressed sheet of mica with a minimum thickness of each sheet 0.18mm (0.007 inch) is called Mica Blocks.
It is graded according to the quality as Clear (CC), Clear Slightly Stained (CL SS), Fairly Stained (FS), Good Stained (GS), Heavily Stained (HS) and Densely Stained (DS).
Mica sheets are available in irregular shapes due to natural occurrence and are obtained in between the area range of 4.8 sq.cm to 650 sq.cm (0.75 sq. inch to 100 up sq. inch). Average sheet thickness of each mica blocks varies in between 0.18 to 0.40 mm (0.007 inch to 0.016 inch).
Crude Mica Block
This is the unfit form of mica block. The edges will be cut out a thin layer will be picked up from both faces to give it a smoother look.
Since mica is fragile at the edges, this smoothing process makes it more firm all around the edges.
These are various sizes in which mica blocks are available. Starting form the smallest (no. 6) to special mica blocks.
The word "mica" is derived from the Latin word mica, meaning "a crumb", and probably influenced by micare, "to glitter". The raw mica group of sheet silicate (phyllosilicate) minerals includes several closely related materials having close to perfect basal cleavage. All are monoclinic, with a tendency towards pseudo hexagonal crystals, and are similar in chemical composition. The highly perfect cleavage, which is the most prominent characteristic of mica, is explained by the hexagonal sheet-like arrangement of its atoms.
