Micanite is a flexible mica sheeting material that is commonly used in the electrical and electronics industry for insulation, shielding, and protection. It is made from mica, a naturally occurring mineral that is mined from the earth. Micanite is made from a combination of ground mica and a resin binder. The binder gives the mica sheets a flexible, pliable and malleable quality, making them easy to work with and form into different shapes. Micanite sheets can be cut, drilled, and shaped to fit any application. They are often used in the electronics industry to provide electrical insulation, shielding, and protection for components and devices. Micanite sheets are also used to insulate buildings, provide fire protection, and reduce noise.
