Abstract : At the present time, a major proportion of high quality natural mica used in this country is obtained from foreign sources. Attempts have been made to reconstitute synthetic mica into large sheet-like structures which would be adequate for electronic applications. For example, one of the earliest and most extensively used approaches to mica reconstitution employed the well-known paper making technique. There, the synthetic mica was broken down into flakes by grinding in an aqueous medium and then permitted to settle out of such medium onto a suitable surface or screen in the form of a reconstituted mica sheet or mat. A principal object of the invention is to provide apparatus for electrophoretically depositing flat, plate-like particles into large lamellar sheets. A further object of the invention resides in the provision of apparatus for the reconstitution of synthetic mica particles into large lamellar sheets.
