Micas are natural phyllosilicates with a platelet-shaped structure. There are various types of mica. Light-coloured muscovite and dark-coloured phlogopite are use in industrial applications. They are exposed to various milling processes as well as separation processes with hydrocyclones and flotation before being milled and dried.
