Mica is used in the paints and coatings industry as a component that extends the shelf life of pigments. It also brightens the intensity of colored pigments. Mica acts as a reinforcing pigment to reduce cracking, peeling and checking in the dry film and prevents shrinkage and sheering of the paint. When a paint starts to fall, mica holds it together sufficiently to keep it away from cissing, curtaining and prevents microscopic ruptures in the paint films.
Mica is an inert material and thus easily resist actions of light, heat, temperature, electricity, water, acids, and alkalis, as well as, it reduces hydrolytic and electric action within paint film.
