FAQ

Are you spending extra money, energy and time using conventional cordierite kiln shelves?

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.

Does LO-MASS® firing systems adapted for single or multi-deck construction?

In addition to offering increased strength and output, LO-MASS® systems provide the sustainability every company wants. Saint-Gobain is the industry leader in the development of silicon carbide materials, which are resistant to oxidation at higher temperatures. With our proprietary KilnWorks® customized software analysis, our engineers will design and develop an optimal design solution for your structure.

Does Saint-Gobain offers oxide and nitride-bonded silicon carbide kiln furniture products?

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.

What are the benefits of LO-MASS® kiln furniture made from advanced silicon carbide materials when firing sanitaryware?

Cost and sustainability are key factors when comparing traditional kiln furniture and LO-MASS® kiln furniture systems. LO-MASS® systems, constructed of advanced silicon carbide (SiC) materials, are thinner, lighter and significantly stronger than traditional kiln furniture. Developed to meet the demand for improved energy efficiencies in high temperature applications, LO-MASS® systems from Saint-Gobain minimize mass while maximizing strength, resulting in greater kiln capacity and reduced firing cycles.

What are the benefits of LO-MASS® kiln furniture made from advanced silicon carbide materials when firing whiteware and dinnerware?

Cost and sustainability are key factors when comparing traditional kiln furniture and LO-MASS® kiln furniture systems. LO-MASS® systems, constructed of advanced silicon carbide (SiC) materials, are thinner, lighter and significantly stronger than traditional kiln furniture. Developed to meet the demand for improved energy efficiencies in high temperature applications, LO-MASS® systems from Saint-Gobain minimize mass while maximizing strength, resulting in greater kiln capacity and reduced firing cycles. It also means increased automation compatibility for loading and unloading.
