These are the most
desired kiln shelves for those in the know, but until recently their price
was outside the budget for most potters. Consider these points:
Our Nitride-Bonded Silicon Carbide Shelves are very thin (as thin as
0.394-inches thick), light-weight, and contain low thermal mass. This means
giant savings on your back. That could pay for this investment right away.
It also means that your kiln has more room for pottery rather than for the
Nitride-bonded shelves are much stronger than ordinary silicon carbide
shelves and they are much, much stronger than high alumina or other
Nitride-bonded shelves are highly resistant to warping. They are rated for
temperatures much higher than regular silicon carbide shelves. And their
strength lends them to having a much longer working life than other kiln
The larger shelves have expansion joints, which enhance their long life. The
expansion joints relieve stress on the shelf during the expansion and
contraction that takes place during firing and helps protect against
cracking. Even without the expansion joints, Nitride Bonded Silicon Carbide
Shelves outlast most other types of kiln shelves, but this improves them
WARNING! USE NITRIDE BONDED SILICON
CARBIDE SHELVES WITH CAUTION!
- Never place hands or shelves into an operating kiln.
- TURN OFF electric source to elements whenever you are loading and
unloading your electric kiln.
- Loading or unloading Nitride Bonded Silicon Carbide shelves in an
electric kiln while power is on may result in high voltage
- DO NOT USE Nitride Bonded Silicone Carbide shelves in an electric
kiln if elements are dis-lodged or hanging from element channels.
- DO NOT ALLOW nitride bonded shelves to get wet. Although we are not
aware of specific deteriorating, fracturing or exploding problems with
our nitride bonded shelves, some other types of silicon carbide
shelves have been known to explode when fired wet.
