(Mica & Micaceous Iron Oxide)
The Mineral Muscovite (Mica)
Muscovite is a common rock forming mineral and is found in igneous, metamorphic and detrital sedimentary rocks. Muscovite has a layered structure of aluminum silicate sheets weakly bonded together by layers of potassium ions. Muscovite sheets were used for kitchen oven windows before synthetic materials replaced them.
Micaceous Iron Oxide
Chemical Formula: Fe2O3, Iron Oxide.
In anti - rust paints and coatings. Provides excellent corrosion resistance on metal surfaces. Excellent for painting of bridges, ships and boats, Iron bars and rods for constructions.
