High Temperature Ceramic Glass - For Wood, Pellet, & Coal Stoves
High Temperature Ceramic Glass - (Pyroceram) For Use in Gas, Oil, Wood, Pellet, Coal, or Bio Stoves Only
High temperature ceramic glass is suitable for use in wood, pellet, and coal burning stoves. It's rarely used for fireplace doors, but often used in industrial high temperature applications. Its 1380° F thermal shock rating makes it ideal for any application where high temperature tolerance is required. There is no visual or performance difference between Pyroceram™, Neoceram™, or Robax™ -- those names are just trademarks. We use only genuine Pyroceram ceramic glass. Available in 3/16" and 1/8" thicknesses only. NOTE: This glass is not intended for use on cook-tops or range-tops.
Tempered Glass - For Fireplace Doors
Tempered Fireplace Glass - High Strength for Fireplace Doors Only
This is the most common glass used in fireplace doors due to its high mechanical strength - tempered glass is 4 to 7 times stronger than regular glass. Its 400° F thermal shock rating is high enough for use in fireplace screens and doors, but it is also suitable for many other glass applications that call for added safety and strength. Although it will occasionally break, the shard pattern of tempered glass is very different from regular glass: While regular glass breaks into large long splinters, tempered glass will completely fragment into small somewhat rounded bits. To minimize thermal shock, We recommend a clearance of at least 4" to 6" between glass surfaces and fireplace grates. Available in clear, bronze, and light gray smoked colors with thicknesses of 1/8", 3/16", or 1/4".
Mica Mineral - For Some Coal Stoves
Mica for Wood & Coal Stoves - A Mineral for Some Older Stoves
Mica is a transparent mineral used in older coal and wood stoves. It has the appearance and flexibility of clear plastic, can be cut with scissors, and withstands temperatures of 1800° F. Because it is a naturally occurring mineral, several small pieces are more affordable than a single large piece. It is available in thickness of.005".
