Planichem MICATHERM®

MICATHERM® and FM-HIGH® are the materials which Planichem designed and manufactured with a view to meeting the most demanding sealing requirements. Thanks to their chemical formulation, these patented materials, which are available as filler for Spiral Wound Gaskets, facing for Camprofile Gaskets or as Sheets, can be used in all critical applications where other materials fail to ensure the required resistance, durability and reliability up to 1000°C. MICATHERM® and FM-HIGH® are oxidation-free.

Masterpac MICATHERM® Camprofiles

Masterpac Camprofile gasket with MICATHERM® Facing consists of a serrated metal core onto which is bonded a mica based sealing face. The metallic core provides gasket rigidity and blow-out resistance while the soft MICATHERM® facing provides exceptional sealing performance. This Camprofile gasket uses high temperature facing material which has max temperature to 1000ºC and Class 150 to 2500.


To combat the effects of pressure and temperature fluctuations, flexibility and recovery are essential. Masterpac Spiral Wound Gasket with MICATHERM® filler is the precision-engineered solution for flanged joints, heat exchangers, boiler handholes, manholes, and other high-temperature, high-pressure applications - providing resistance to virtually every known corrosive and toxic element. Masterpac Spiral Wound Gasket uses MICATHERM® filler material which has max temperature at 1000ºC and Class 150 to 2500.


FM-HIGH® is a gasketing material manufactured with vermiculite powder bio-soluble fibers. Available with 316 stainless steel tanged core support to enhance the pressure resistance, this product represents the most advanced technical solution in the field of high temperature applications. Provides total freedom from oxidation. Chemical compatibility exceeds graphite. Fire safe with proven global track record.


Planichem is an Italian company specialized in the processing of MICA for the production of gasketing materials, gaskets and semi-finished products with high technical value. MICATHERM® S15 is MICA based gasketing materials available with or without steel insertion. Thanks to their chemical formulation, these MICA based products, which are 100% oxidation free, are able to guarantee maximum resistance, reliability and long-time service.
