Mica products from XSEL Technologies deliver superior performance and value. Foundries that use mica slip planes and mica ceramic slip planes can save up to 35% on furnace maintenance costs.
Mica slip planes from XSEL Technologies are made from phlogopite mica, silicone binder, and reinforced fiberglass cloth. They separate the refractory lining from the coil and provide insulation during the induction melt process.
Mica slip planes are not electrically conductive. Your furnaces are more efficient.
Mica is an excellent heat conductor, delivering efficient slip plane performance.
Mica slip planes are non-porous. They provide superior protection against damaging vapors.
Mica slip planes won't fuse to grout and brick. That means less damage and easy removal.
Made of phlogopite mica, ceramic fiber, and a heat resistant silicone binder, mica ceramic slip planes from XSEL Technologies separate the refractory lining from the coil in induction furnaces and provide insulation to the coil.
Mica ceramic slip planes deliver low thermal conductivity, increasing equipment lifetimes.
Heat loss is limited by mica ceramic slip planes making furnaces more efficient.
The ceramic slide fo the slip plane delivers insulation to the coil and crucible.
Mica ceramic slip planes provide increased protection against harmful carbon gasses.
The mica side of the mica slip plane is placed against the brick/grout, while the ceramic side delivers excellent heat retention performance. Mica ceramic slip planes are easily cut to size; to be pressed against brick and grout with RTV silicone for adhesion of slip plane.
Mica products from XSEL Technologies are engineered to withstand the toughest operating conditions.
