Imitated but never equaled, ADVANCER® ADVANCER® kiln shelves are thin, lightweight kiln shelves made from an advanced nitride-bonded silicon carbide composition. ADVANCER kiln shelves are 19 times stronger, and weigh 50% less than conventional silicon carbide shelves or 1” thick cordierite shelves.
Kilnshelf’s Exclusive Multi-Sided Plates. ADVANCER® kiln shelves are available in 10 and 12-sided shapes to fit most top loading electric kilns (full and half), and are the only silicon carbide shelves tested and recommended for use in resistance coil element kilns. At only 5/16-inch thick, ADVANCER® kiln shelves allow for significantly more stacking space when compared to conventional 5/8” and 1” thick cordierite kiln shelves.
The Traditional “Work Horse” Shelves for Potters. Conventional, ram pressed silicon carbide shelves are used by potters firing to cones 9-12 in natural gas, propane, wood and multi-fuel kilns. Our traditional silicon carbide shelves are oxide bonded and over the last 40 years have proven to be a sound investment providing years of service life in demanding firing applications including gas reduction, wood, soda and salt.
