Axner Kiln Wash

Recommended Posts

Axner now has a kiln wash that they say can be put on both sides of the shelves with no flaking. At first I thought it might be a knock off of ITC but at $40- gallon I don't think so. I couldn't find the MSDS for it so no clues there.

 

Any idea what they are doing differently or what would be in it? Would be nice to be able to coat both sides and flip the shelves for glaze firing.

 

Anybody try it yet?

I found this kiln wash several years ago.  Fire only about 2x a month.  This wash does fine for me (cone 5-6)  doesn't flake and gives a little texture to the shelf so objects can slide a little during firing.  Would probably be too expensive for a large kiln but for my 3 shelf Skutt I usually recoat 2x a year.  In the 10 years I have had my kiln have never flipped shelves, they must be good no warping.

I believe Lee's Super Kiln Wash has been around for a while . . . found old Clayart references/threads going back to 1990's. The threat on Campana kiln wash has a link to Jeff's blog site where there is a note from John Britt comparing the Campana wash to Lee's.

Thanks, I read all the comments now. I didn't read them all the first time. So, do you think it's just Campana's wash or a slight variation of it?

 

Sigh, disappointed if so. Guess I'm still not flipping shelves for the glaze fire.

Sounds like the recipes are first cousins.
