Hi, I am having a little microwave experiment, and I want to shield some
cracks from leaking microwaves.

ideally: solder or weld the crack shut.
if that's too hard stuff the crack with aluminium foil.

A pal said to me that a paper-type called "mica" is used for such reasons in microwave ovens.

mica is used in the oven's I'm not sure exactly what puropse it
serves, it is not a tyype of paper,

Is it true, or does anyone know any better way to make leaking
microwaves less harmful (apart from Faraday cage, this is too hard for
me to make, I suppose).
