Product Information
Superwool Fibre Paper, 3mm

Doing a box casting? 3mm Fibre Paper is great as a separator in box casting, lining the box or protecting dams. Just cut some strips and arrange them inside the box. 

You can also use 3mm fibre paper to add texture to glass in a process known as kiln carving.  The fibre is cut using a craft knife and placed between the glass and the shelf. This is a great low-cost way to add some special effects.

It can also be used to insulate against thermal shock and improve annealing, or you can cut and construct with it for bas relief design.

Great for using with crackle projects!

We don’t recommend firing onto the fibre above 804C (for kilncarving) unless you are planning to do some coldworking.

Biosoluble Fibre Paper is not the same as Ceramic Fibre (which we have never sold). The fibre paper we sell is made from an Alkaline-earth Silicate Wool, unlike Ceramic Fibre, AES Wool is biosoluble and if inhaled does not accumulate in the lungs. This is an excellent and safer alternative to ceramic fibre but it will not withstand the higher temperatures required for processes such as pot melts. Whilst AES is considerably safer to use than Ceramic Fibre, it can be itchy so we recommend using a FFP3 Dust Mask and cleaning up using a vacuum with a HEPA filter.

Please note: This fibre does not give as smooth a finish as Thinfire paper. Opal glasses tend to stick to fibre papers more than clear and transparent coloured glasses, for this reason we do not recommend fibre paper is used as a shelf separator unless it is used on combination with another separator such as Thinfire paper.

Just bought this from another supplier and realise I paid way too much. I will keep shopping with warm glass

Another use is to prop up wire hanger loops so that they continue to stick out of your glass work at the correct angle after firing, rather than sagging. When doing this, keep the fibre paper a couple of mm away from the glass.
