Mica glass is derived from isinglass, a natural silicate mineral that can be used in older antique woods stoves, European stoves, coal stoves, furnaces, and even the boiler peepholes. It is a thin and transparent, having the appearance of cellophane or clear plastic. However, mica glass sheets can withstand temperatures of 1800° F, making it ideal for smaller windows on heating appliances. Our mica glass for wood stoves is available in a range of different precut sizes.
Our mica glass panels comes in thicknesses of .003 inch to .005 inch. Individual sheets are offered only in the variety of sizes shown here. It is more economical to get several smaller panels and piece them together for larger window openings rather than trying to obtain a custom size. If you need smaller dimensions than what we offer, mica can easily be cut to size with scissors.
Please Note: These are the only sizes available; if you need to cover a larger area, you will need to piece multiple mica glass panels together.
