Product Description


Sericite Introduction


Sericite mica powder is a kind of mica powder. The main component is a potassium silicate aluminosilicate mineral, which is silver-white or grayish-white, in the form of fine scales. Its molecular formula is (H 2 KAl 3 (SiC4). The mineral composition is relatively simple and the content of toxic elements is extremely low, No radioactive elements can be used as green materials.

Main properties of sericite powder


Sericite is a new type of industrial mineral with a layered structure, which is a subspecies of muscovite in the mica family with extremely fine scales. The density is 2.78-2.88g / cm 3, the hardness is 2-2.5, and the diameter-thickness ratio is> 50. It can be split into very thin flakes, with silk luster and smooth feeling, full of elasticity, flexibility, acid and alkali resistance, strong electrical insulation, heat resistance (up to 600 o C), and low coefficient of thermal expansion, and The surface has strong UV resistance, good abrasion resistance and wear resistance. The elastic modulus is 1505-2134MPa, the tensile strength is 170-360MPa, the shear strength is 215-302MPa, and the thermal conductivity is 0.419-0.670W.
