This allows for a longer service life with exceptional shielding properties for steel structures such as ships, bridges or offshore windmills with a steel foundation.
MicaFort in coatings
Mica is a naturally occurring inert mineral with a very high aspect ratio. The mineral platelets remain platy particles even after processing which reduces the raw material to an ultra-fine powder. High aspect ratio MicaFort products provide very effective barrier formation in coatings. These formations increase the performance of mica in marine coatings, even under the most severe conditions such as marine applications.
The Mica particles orientate themselves within the coating parallel to the substrate. This way they ensure the coating longevity and resistance to chemicals, saltwater or other aggressive substances. We produce MicaFort from Muscovite Mica which is naturally colourless. This enables to manufacture the white, pale and primary shades of coatings without the addition of expensive pigments.
