Muscovite is the most common type of mineral in the family of mica silicates. The muscovite sheets have pearly to vitreous luster/surface. Muscovite sheets are commonly found along with metamorphic, igneous, or even sedimentary formations into patches, clusters, or veins.
The use of muscovite as a multifunctional filler or additive in the various industry is well known. The material derives many uses in industrial as well as specialty applications due to its unique properties which are unmatched by other commonly found minerals. Muscovite has excellent electrical and thermal properties and finds its way into the manufacturing of rubber, plastics, wallpaper, ceramics, paper, plasters, and many more industries.
SKKU MINERALS produces specialized Dry ground micronized muscovite products for use in various key applications. Muscovites due to their complex platy structure are not easy to grind. Hence SKKU MINERALS has developed unique processes which support the production of commercial micronized muscovite products. Some of the unique characteristics of MUSCOVITE’S FROM SKKU MINERALS are as under:
