From Wikipedia, the free encyclopedia
Micathermic heater

A micathermic heater is a type of space heater in which the heating element is covered in thin sheets of mica. Micathermic heaters produce both convection heat and radiant heat,[1] and are usually thinner than other types of heaters.[2]


The 1500 watt SoleusAir 360 Micathermic Heater was recalled in 2008 due to it being a fire hazard.[3]
