Are ADVANCER® shelves safe to use in electric kilns?

Yes. Although some forms of silicon carbide are known to conduct electricity, ADVANCER® is a relatively poor conductor of electricity due to the oxide glass layer present on all ADVANCER shelves. Be sure to select the correct size shelf for your kiln and make sure your kiln is in good repair with no elements hanging out of the grooves where they can sprawl out onto shelves. Finally use common sense and never reach into an energized electric kiln!
