Kiln Supplies - Cone 11 Shelves & Posts

Cone 11 Kiln Shelves
We import the finest grade of Dry-Pressed High Alumina kiln shelves from England. These shelves are world famous for their exceptional quality and durability: comparable to Silicon Carbide in strength but at a fraction of the cost.

Beware of low quality slip-caste “high alumina” shelves. Slip casting yields a weaker, more open inner structure susceptible to deformation under heavy loads and at high temperatures. Our shelves are formed by “Dry-Pressing” which creates an extremely dense internal structure that in itself gives strength and resists warping.

In addition, all “high alumina” formulas are not the same: ours has been proven reliable over years of use in the United States and overseas. We do not recommend High Alumina shelves for Raku firing: extremely rapid or uneven temperature changes are problematic to any refractory and should be avoided. High Alumina shelves are also not recommended for Salt or Wood Firing.

Shelf Shipments/Packing Fees
Because of the fragile nature of refractories, extreme care has to be taken to insure their safe arrival. For Truck Shipments: shelves are packaged “on edge” inside a wooden crate and attached to a pallet to maintain their upright (vertical) position. Shipment is made by Common Carrier - ask for receiving details when placing your order. To cover crating costs, a packing charge of 10% of your order will be added with a minimum fee of $15.00; maximum fee of $40.00
For UPS Shipments: because UPS will not maintain a vertical position during shipping, extra packing materials and special-sized boxes are required to compensate. In addition, only smaller sizes and limited quantities can be shipped. A packing fee of $15.00 per box is charged with a 3-box limit for most sizes. All shelves shipped UPS require “oversized” boxes and are charged as 70 lb packages. Please Note: due to the extra time required to properly pack shelves for UPS shipment, the RUSH charge for shelf orders is $5.00 per shelf. (Rush Orders must be placed by phone before 11:00 A.M. E.S.T. in order to ship the same day. Rush Orders placed after 11:00 A.M. will ship on the next business day.)

Posting & Rotation
For longest shelf life, we recommend you always “3-post” your shelves. A 3-post configuration is the most stable support insuring even shelf weight distribution to eliminate “rocking” during firing. In addition, shelves should be “rotated” on a regular schedule. To properly “rotate” a shelf, it must be flipped and turned so that the kiln posts touch on the same positions but on the opposite side of the shelf. This will fully reverse firing stresses and warpage. Always place post over post when stacking a kiln for maximum stability and strength.
 

Posts - Cone 10

2”-sided, Triangular Cross-Section, Heavy-Duty ½”+ thick walls. These posts provide a very stable 3-point support while allowing for flexible placement in corners and along edges of shelves.

Kiln Washing
Kiln wash is used to protect shelves from glaze drips and contact sticking (when the unglazed “foot” of a pot fuses to the shelf during firing due to the degree of melt reached in the clay body itself). Commercial kiln washes often bond to the shelf surface and are difficult to remove making shelf rotation impractical. We recommend (2) alternatives:

1) Mix EPK and ALUMINA HYDRATE. Run a series of tests with a line blend as follows: 10% EPK to 90% ALUM., 20% : 80% 30% : 70% etc.

The 10% EPK : 90% ALUM. mix, when applied as a thin wash, will wipe off with a damp sponge after firing. It prevents feet from sticking, but offers only a little protection against glaze drips. As you increase the EPK, the wash will better protect against glaze drips but will begin to stick to the shelf. Experiment to determine what formula best suits your needs.

2) Use “Setting Slabs” - clay slabs coated with kiln wash and placed under a glazed piece during firing. No kiln wash is applied directly to the shelf making rotation easy.
