The Mica Insulator Company of New York and Chicago is distributing pamphlets descriptive of the merits of its M-I-C insulating compound. Accompanying the pamphlets are samples of cloth coated with the compound, showing its fine, glossy, flexible finish. This compound is a black enamel, made in four grades, to suit all requirements. It is composed chiefly of linseed oil, Cuban asphaltum and Para rubber, and is well adapted for coating the coils of armatures and field magnets, electric wires, cables, arc lamps, transformers, boilers, smokestacks, etc. The manufacturer claims for it non-corrosiveness, durability, elasticity and imperviousness.
