So many rigidizing is some strictly rigidized some help glue the ceramic blanket to the outside walls some reflect the heat back already have some plistex for a reflective thermal product because I’m too cheap for ITC but would rather rigidizevfirst and then apply a thermal reflective product as well as looking into some kind of sodium silicate for a way to glue the two -3 inches of ceramic blanket to the walls of them ribbon forge I’m about to be buildingOr should I just get some Mizzou cast a light and call it a day
Hello,I'm planning on redoing the insulation in my forge (a 20 pound propane tank with a single venturi burner)I'm planning on using ceramic fiber which I understand can be tricky to work with. My questions *Will sealing the blanket with refractory cement (meeco 610) keep fibers from being blown around and offer enough support to keep the lining from collapsing *Is a 2 inch thick sheet over kill for a relatively small forge *Do I need some sort of ridgidizer for the blanket * What kind of resporator do I need to work with the blanket.
Hello to all, I recently purchased a Diamondback 2-Burner Blacksmith Forge, looking forward to using it but I want to get the longest, most efficient life out of it ! My question is about coating the inside with a UV Reflective Coating ! Note: I will be using Metrikote as suggested by a number of members of this Site ! How do you determine if the new Forge needs a coating on the inside ? How do you determine if you need to fill in any spacing between bricks and edges between sides and floor, before coating the insides ? What if there is a different insulating material on the walls, larger main door, and the floor, do you use the same coating material ? Sorry for all of the questions but I am getting excited about using the new Forge and want to do it right and yes being a newbie, I tend to go overboard very fast on what to do ! Thanks for your time, Grev
