PAPYROS KILN SHELF PAPER

PAPYROS™ Kiln Shelf Paper is a ceramic-based paper specially formulated for glass fusing. When placed between the kiln shelf and the underside of a glass project, PAPYROS prevents the glass from sticking to the shelf during firing. Because of its sturdy composition, PAPYROS provides excellent glass/kiln shelf separation on the first use, and frequently even in subsequent firings

PAPYROS is sold as individual sheets, packs of 10 and 100 sheets, Craft Rolls, Studio Rolls and Commercial Rolls

SHELF PRIMER or KILN WASH

13 oz can of Boron Nitride Spray

BORON NITRIDE SPRAY MOLD RELEASE FOR GLASS CASTING AND SLUMPING is a hexagonal form of Boron Nitride in a special aerosol formulation for stainless steel and ceramic molds. Hexagonal Boron Nitride has been used in heavy industry for decades to provide a slippery surface for molds for glass and molten metals. This form of Boron Nitride works at temperatures up to 1800°F.

Shake can well and on stainless steel molds, apply a light coat, wait 15 minutes and apply a second coat. Allow to dry for 15 minutes and you're ready to go. No need to preheat the mold.

On new ceramic molds, apply 2-4 light coats about 5 to 10 minutes apart. Allow to dry 15 minutes and you're ready to go. On molds previously treated with kiln wash, remove as much kiln wash as possible before spraying.

If firing to 1350°F, you should be able to get a couple of firings before a light recoat is needed. If firing higher, it is best to give a quick spray before the next run.

As with all Boron Nitride products, once you start using Boron on a mold, you cannot go back to using kiln wash.
