Why is Mica Used in Heating Systems?

Mica heating elements are a popular choice in various heating applications due to their high temperature capabilities of up to 600°C. Where other types of heating elements cannot handle the required temperatures, a mica solution is often used. Mica heaters are made using thin sheets of mica, allowing for low thermal mass and extremely quick heat-up times. Due to the build-up of mica heaters it is extremely important that they are fully clamped in place to avoid any delamination from such fast heat-up times.
