About 16 months ago I found out about a newish kiln liner. It is
white and about 1/8" thick. It comes with some kind of binder in it
which has to be burned off first and when you spill enamel on it you
let it cool and then a thin layer of the liner flakes off and you
have a clean surface to work on. I Loved it. I bought a nice sheet of
it for my kiln and the kiln with the fiber floor where I taught. I
was done with kiln wash and shelves for the entire 16 months. It is
getting a little thin in the middle now from all the flaking off of
layers so I went to order a new one.
When my husband was working on my computer he deleted ALL of my
bookmarks and apparently they weren’t included in the back up. It’s
been a pretty big problem, of course I have no idea what this wonder
kiln liner is called. I have no idea who the company is I bought it
from since I simply had it bookmarked. The box of receipts from last
year is in the end of the attic and is really hard to reach.
Does anyone know what this stuff was and where to get it again? I
tried something Delphi told me sounded like it but it’s not. Their
version is more line a thin blanket and the kiln furniture gets
snagged on it when there is a little glass on the floor of the kiln.
It is not a “blanket”
It is not kiln paper which is destroyed by each use.
It starts out flexible enough to cut with a knife and then after you
burn out the binder it becomes more rigid and fragile.
I talked to Axner, Delphi, Tevel in NY and Thompson.
Now I’m asking the real experts…you.
Someone out there has to know what I’m talking about.
Thanks! Karen (in Chicago where it’s finally cool enough for the
kiln to feel good when it’s on)
