Mica products For superior mechanical performance, barrier properties and anti-cracking in paints

  • Excellent chemical stability
  • Superior weathering
  • Ideal for decorative and industrial paints

Mica elementary crystals are three-layer platy minerals. The bonding strength between these layers gives all micas very high chemical and weathering stability.

Using selected milling and delamination techniques, we tailor the properties of our mica grades to provide high levels of: 

  • Film reinforcement
  • Barrier properties
  • Chemical and solvent resistance
  • Cracking resistance
  • UV resistance

Our Suzorite® mica grades provide superior performance in:

  • Indoor and outdoor decorative coatings
  • Metal primers
  • Marine coatings
  • Anti-corrosion paints
  • Heat-resistant paints
  • Intumescent paints
  • Wood paints
  • Floor paints
  • Traffic markings
