This type of mica tape is often used for electrical insulation in cables and wires. It consists of calcined mica paper that is reinforced with a single layer of fiber cloth, such as glass cloth. The calcination process removes any organic impurities and results in a more stable material that can withstand high temperatures and provide good electrical insulation properties. The fiber cloth adds strength and dimensional stability to the tape. The mica tape is typically applied over the conductor as a layer of insulation before other layers are added to complete the cable or wire construction.
