Note, many of the tests referred to above are utilized for non-metallic gasket materials, but do not cover all types. Many are not applicable to rubber or essentially elastomer based gasket products.
Both mica and vermiculite have the same temperature and chemical resistance properties – the difference being that vermiculite can be exfoliated due to “water” being between the layers and no “water” between the mica layers.
