Open Fusing Kiln


11/27/07 – Open Fusing Kiln

At what temperature is it risk-free to open up the fusing kiln? When heating your object, it’s popular to glance when the art object reaches a temperature of above 1000 degrees Fahrenheit. Be sure to put on your IR and UV glasses when doing this operation.

Glass is breakable between room temperature and 1000 degrees Fahrenheit. Don’t open your unit beneath 1000 degrees Fahrenheit. At above 1000 degrees Fahrenheit, the glass is hot enough that it’s all right to see the glass. Always put on optic protective covering when watching the fusing glass in the kiln. The scalding air escaping from the oven can damage those unprotected eyes!
