  1. Dear All, Thanks everyone for the suggestions. I think i will try the glazenerd's method. I think i can get all the chemicals listed from a lab store but not sure from where to obtain the Stoneware Clay. I dont have press mould but can make one in lathe in SS if i really needs it. The ceramic top should have enough chemical resistance to wipe off the chemicals which might fall on it. Most chemicals we use with are oxides. I still dont know whether it will stain the ceramic surface or not. But it might not be an issue if we make the top in black color. Regards, VinoD
  2. Dear All, Thank you all for the replies. The dimension of the top plate I am looking for is around 25 X 25 cms. We have successfully tested the temperature by winding a spring type nichrome coil on bottom part of an SS block where the path for the same is grinded of. We have done it with an SS top sheet and due to the non uniform heating and as some chemicals tends to react on SS, we are planning to move to ceramic. The max temperature, i.e 500 C is reached within 10 minutes on the SS sheet, almost uniformly is 25 X 25 cms. The time required to achieve desired temperature is not a b
  3. Dear All, I am a newbie in this field and would like to get any know-how regarding the making of a ceramic (hot) top similar to Hotplates used in labs. Thanks in Advance
  4. Hi Everyone, I am a newbie and would like to learn how do we make ceramic pots or tiles. Currently, I am stuck in an application where i need to make a ceramic top for an instrument which can withstand temperature upto 500 C. The instrument is similar to a Hot Plate. Any knowhow on how to make such ceramic tops will be a great help for completing my project on time. Thanks in advance., Vinod
