Kiln furniture is used in heating processes in the production of individual pieces such as ceramic or metal components. The kiln furniture carries the charge and is intended to ensure that the components neither deform nor stick to one another.
Here at The BotPots, we have a wide variety of kiln shelves in stock and ready to ship. Pressed Cordierite (alumina) shelves are the standard shelf that comes with most PotClays kilns. These are also typically the most economical. They are relatively durable, they can be fired repeatedly to cone 10, and they can be used in either electric or gas kilns.
The black shelves are silicon carbide shelves. These shelves are ideal for high temperature firing and for gas kilns. These shelves come with the Nidec Shimpo Kilns.
