What Mica Glass Sizes Do We Carry?

After checking that the glass fits to the intended frame, make any size adjustments by trimming it with scissors, paper cutter, or Exacto knife. Clamp the glass in the frame. Stove cement can also be used to help hold it in place.

When ordering Stove mica glass, keep in mind...

Mica glass expands when heated. So order or cut the mica glass to size so that it is a 1/8" inch smaller than the place that it sits in. This will help accommodate for this thermal expansion.
Mounting hardware, such as metal screws, will also expand under heat. So do not over-tighten. The hardware can cause the glass to break when the woodstove is in use. We recommend installing the hardware "finger tight", meaning screwing in by hand, and stopping when the glass is secure but not tight.

We need a sheet of mica glass 8" by 12" and I will have to cut it in three pieces measuring 10.5" by 2.25, 7.75" by 2.75", and 6.5" by 2.25".
