Many Platten Insulators will not stand a high compresive load meaning they will degrade and break down very quickly, Armatherm™ Mica 500 will offer many years trouble free service.

Main Characteristics:

- Exceptionally High Hot Compressive Strength 
- Low Thermal Conductivity 
- Oil and Moisture Resistant 
- Proven to Reduce Heat Loss, meaning lower running costs. 
- Helps Control Temperature
