SilkeMat® Is a NON-CARCINOGENIC refractory fiber blanket that can be cut, molded, rigidized and formed. It can be used with and without rigidizing. A high-grade boron nitride separator is suggested for a cleaner release from the glass when exceeding 1400F on rigidized SilkeMat. There is no “shot” (tiny bits of silica) in this product and most firings are clean, leaving only the texture of the fiber on the glass. A respirator is NOT needed to cut or work with SilkeMat® unless you are sanding. It is available in variable widths and 100’ - 150’ rolls, but can be cut to size per order. Contact individual DISTRIBUTORS for more information on size and product availability.
