Fine grained, nitride-bonded silicon carbide. 1400ºC max.
ADVANCER® kiln shelves are the only silicon carbide shelves tested and recommended for use in resistance coil element kilns. At only 8mm thick, ADVANCER® kiln shelves allow for significantly more stacking space when compared to conventional 1.6cm and 2.5cm thick cordierite kiln shelves. Put 6 ADVANCER® shelves in the height required for 5 cordierite shelves giving an additional 20% stacking space! At less than half the weight of conventional shelves, ADVANCER® kiln shelves are far easier to handle and lift in and out of the kiln with less stress to your hands and back.
Lower mass and faster heat transfer (greater thermal conductivity) means shorter firing cycles and reduced energy consumption.
