While these are compelling worker Safety Issues, the enviornmental sanitation benefits are also paramount. It is due to these negative aspects of Talc & Mica that inspired us to develop Mica Substiture, not merely as an alternative but as a replacement.

STAR prides itself in being foremost in the Manufacture of Ecologically Sound products for the Wire and Cable Industry, and maintaining a keen eye on worker safety.
