Anyone use silicon carbide in final coating of ceramic fiber?

Recommended Posts

Getting ready to redo my 2 propane forges so I wanted to make an ITC-100 like coating and saw Dave Hammers video using the colloidal silica and zirconium silicate mixture. When I once used ITC-100 it was quite gritty and had black flecks in it so I was thinking there might be some silicon carbide in there so I was considering mixing it into the Kaolin/Zircon final coating and wondered if anyone has tried it. I did find this research article on Silicon Carbide coating of ceramic fibre useful but was looking for more recent experience http://qirt.gel.ulaval.ca/archives/qirt2008/papers/06_02_08.pdf
