Do I need to adhere the Ceramic Fiber Blanket to the Oven?

Has anyone used any kind of product to adhere or glue the Ceramic Fiber Blanket to the exterior oven surface? I’ve never worked with it before but could imagine it would be helpful if I could stick it to the oven surface while I get the chicken wire in place.

Hi Rich,

You might be overthinking it just a bit. The ceramic fiber has a bit of mass to it, so given a reasonably calm day it’s not going to float away. As you lay down the layers they should hold down the ones underneath.

Bottom line is you would likely take longer trying to adhere each layer of blanket than it would take to get them down and secure them with the matrix (chicken wire).


I see what you mean. I just wrapped the oven in the ceramic blanket, put on the wire mesh and did my first shell coat!!


That’s great, Rich! You can now start counting the days until your curing fires. :slight_smile:
