Suzorite mica

Suzorite® Mica

  • Insoluble in water
  • Highly lamellar crystal structure
  • Grain and mud-cracking resistance
  • Corrosion resistance

Mica elementary crystals are three-layer platy minerals with a bonding strength that  provides all micas with a very high chemical and weathering stability.

Suzorite® phlogopite micas provide excellent flexural and bridging characteristics, which contribute to crack resistance in coating applications.


Using selected milling and delamination techniques, we tailor the properties of our mica grades to provide high levels of:

  • Film reinforcement
  • Barrier properties
  • Chemical and solvent resistance
  • Cracking resistance
  • UV resistance

Suzorite® mica grades provide superior performance in:

  • Indoor and outdoor decorative coatings
  • Metal primers
  • Marine coatings
  • Anti-corrosion paints
  • Heat-resistant paints
  • Intumescent paints
  • Wood paints
  • Floor paints
  • Traffic markings

We offer a full range of bespoke formulation and technical and process support services to help you match the right mineral grade to your application requirement.
