I am currently working with glasses (technically glass composites) as a nuclear material and I have some powder which i want to take to 1300 degrees, past the melting point. Ive tried this several times but they all stuck to the crucible i was using. With a bit of looking around the net i came across the use of a kiln wash, which is what i think i shouldve done to prevent this, a little bit more research left me with a 50:50 recipe of kaolin to alumina hryrdrate, however I dont know enough about this to know whether it would partially bond (physically or otherwise) to the glass. For good results it cant bond at all. I was hoping someone here knows if there is a way i can prevent my samples from sticking to the crucible, or specfic recipes that i could use if a kiln wash is the way to go. Any thoughts would be greatly appreciated.
