New Mayco Kiln Wash

New! Mayco Kiln Wash

Mayco recently introduced it’s kiln wash to the marketplace, and since doing so, customers have had a few questions about this product.Here’s some answers from Mayco:

Mayco’s Kiln wash comes in liquid wide mouth pints. (Only available size, currently.) The label’s “Tips for Use” suggests to apply Kiln Wash to both sides of a kiln shelf and then flip on alternate firings. Although most Kiln Wash products on the market peel and crack, then flake and fall onto glaze-ware during firing, Mayco Kiln Wash is very different.

Unlike typical kiln wash, Mayco’s recipe does not crack or peel off, even after multiple firings. Mayco Kiln Wash is also excellent for fixing dings and divots on kiln shelves, acting as a patching agent. It has a broad firing range and works for glass, soda, and wood kiln firings. Applying Mayco Kiln Wash to other kiln furniture and stilts will prevent glaze from fusing to the surface.
