Ever heard of Unifrax?

I was given a sample 12×12″ sheet of Unifrax fiber paper. It looks, feels exactly like shelf paper. About 1/2″ thick. Unifrax makes high-end heat resistant stuff like insulation for areonautics and things for founderies. I can’t find anything online where people have used it for glass + kilns, but I’m thinking “what could go wrong!” (all my bad ideas start this way)
Anyone ever used or heard of it?
Thanks!October 25, 2011 at 7:51 pm #12281wordanaParticipant
I would contact Unifrax directly and ask what the max temp is for the product. I didn’t look long on their web site, but at least some of the products look like they would not hold up to kiln temps:

We have a roll of the Unifrax fiber blanket and use it in the kiln, and also use it for flameworking (cooling the beads.) No problems here. That is their business.October 26, 2011 at 3:41 pm #12284lemonjelloParticipant
Thank you all for replies. I’ll try it and see how it goes.October 31, 2011 at 11:52 pm #12285
