Choose IPS Ceramics for Cordierite Kiln Furniture
Our cordierite kiln furniture is manufactured to be porous and low density, often making it the most cost-effective material for products that support firing, sintering and other heat-treatment processes operating at temperatures between 1000 -1300ºC (1800-2400ºF).
Our cordierite materials have been developed over several decades to give optimum performance:
- Very low creep rates, ensuring a longer life for setters, cranks, batts and support systems being used in a wide range of heat treatment processes working at temperatures up to 1300ºC (2400ºF)
- Extremely resistant to thermal shock cracking, allowing use where very rapid heating and cooling rates are present
- Stable at high temperatures; products can be thermally cycled hundreds (sometimes thousands) of times without degradation
- Low density, giving lightweight setters, cranks and batts that save energy in every firing
