Calcined muscovite mica tape backed with fibre glass fabric

Mica tapes for fire-resistant cables are reinforced with high temperature resistant silicone resin. The resin is there to ensure mica cohesion and mica adhesion to its support. All together the various components offer effective fire resistance with zero halogen emission.

In the particular case of muscovite, the ore is heat treated at a temperature of around 450°C in order to take out the water of crystallization and by doing so, stabilize its mechanical properties.

Once treated, muscovite mica paper is a better electrical insulator than phlogopite mica paper. So muscovite mica paper will be chosen in the case of applications where dielectric strength is favoured to high temperature.

Phlogopite mica tape backed with polyester film

Mica tapes for fire-resistant cables are reinforced with high temperature resistant silicone resin. The resin is there to ensure mica cohesion and mica adhesion to its support. All together the various components offer effective fire resistance with zero halogen emission.

This type of tape will be chosen when the application requires high flexibility of the product, as for instance is the case for the manufacturing of very thin fire-resistant cables.

Phlogopite mica tapes backed with glass fibre fabric

Mica tapes for fire-resistant cables are reinforced with high temperature resistant silicone resin. The resin is there to ensure mica cohesion and mica adhesion to its support. All together the various components offer effective fire resistance with zero halogen emission.

When manufacturing cables, mica paper thickness is an important variable that has to be decided upon in relation with the performance aimed at. The overlapping rate of the mica tape as well as the number of layers around the conductor will also determine the dielectric strength of the cables.
