NATURAL CRYSTALLINE BEAUTY
TORGINOL® MicaFlakesTM make resinous flooring glisten with natural crystalline beauty. These unique metallic flakes are derived from a group of sheet silicate minerals known as mica. Through a technical manufacturing process, the distinctive hexagonal atom arrangement of the mica minerals is separated into sheet-like pieces and broken down into standardized flake sizes. These unique flakes provide a natural metallic luster to resinous flooring systems, which cannot be achieved with other engineered materials.

What is MICA?
MICA makes resinous flooring glisten with natural crystalline beauty. These unique flakes are derived from a group of sheet silicate minerals, called mica, which include muscovite, phlogopite, biotite, clintonite and others. The mica family of minerals contain highly perfect basil cleavage. Through a highly technical manufacturing process, the distinctive hexagonal atom arrangement of the mica minerals is separated into sheet-like pieces, separated into natural color groups and broken down into standardized flakes sizes. These unique flakes provide a natural metallic luster that cannot be achieved with other engineered minerals.
