If so, it’s time to consider Advancer® lightweight kiln shelves from Saint-Gobain. Low mass and high thermal conductivity result in shorter firing cycles, helping potters and artists reduce energy and firing costs while enhancing productivity.
Saint-Gobain also manufactures a broad range of products including Crystolon®, Cryston®, Carbofrax® and Refrax® conventional oxide-bonded and nitride-bonded silicon carbide and Silit® SK high strength, advanced silicon carbide products. We offer a variety of kiln furniture components including plates, setters, support beams and support posts.
At 5/16-in. thickness, Advancer® kiln shelves are 19% stronger and weigh 50% less than conventional shelving. Advancer® shelves are made flat and stay flat, so they won’t warp under repeated cycling. Advancer® kiln shelves are ideal for gas-fired kilns, electric kilns, soda firing and wood firing.
