Papyros Kiln Paper
PAPYROS™ Kiln Shelf Paper is a ceramic-based paper specially formulated for glass fusing. It is ideal for the majority of fusing projects up to 1600°F. Because of its sturdy composition, PAPYROS ™ provides excellent glass/kiln shelf separation on the first use, and frequently in subsequent firing as well. Available in single sheets measuring 520mm x 520mm or off the roll measuring 1m x 520mm. Also available in a very handy full craft roll meaduring 52cm x 25metres, a studio roll measuring 104cm x 10m or the large Bulk roll measuring 104cm x 76cm. Please call for pricing and availability if there is no stock showing of what you need.
PAPYROS tends to retain its paper-like qualities during firings, rather than decomposing into loose dust. The degree to which PAPYROS retains its integrity can be affected by the characteristics of the glass being used as well as firing schedules.
To use the paper, line the entire shelf, or cut a piece of PAPYROS measuring at least 12mm larger than your project (on all sides), then place your glass project(s) on the papered shelf and fuse as you would normally.
When you’ve decided that you’re ready for a new piece of PAPYROS, use one of the options listed below to dispose of the expired paper.
Note: Studio Rolls cannot be sent to DPD ACCESS POINT
NOTE: If using a Vacuum, ensure that your HEPA filters are changed on a regular basis so vacuum functions correctly. When using a bag or rubbish bin make sure you use a one dedicated for paper disposal, that has a fitted lid, and is lined with a plastic bag. Empty bags on a regular basis. You can use a spatula: Using a spatula, fold over the sheet of expired PAPYROS into a small "packet" (reminiscent of making a crêpe foldover) and lower it into a dedicated, lined bin, then close lid. Empty the bags frequently.
PAPYROS is a ceramic-based product and therefore, just as with any other ceramic fibre material, you should always follow these basic safety steps:
- Wear gloves when handling
- Avoid breathing residual dust when cutting pre-fused PAPYROS, or cleaning post-fired PAPYROS from your kiln shelves
- Wear a respirator that is approved for fibre dusts when working with PAPYROS
- Wear safety glasses

Papyros kiln paperBy H Masters
I love this paper - it makes it so quick and easy to get glass items in the oven: no having to prime the shelf with kiln wash and scrape of afterwards. Also as long as there are no holes or tears in the paper after firing you and use it again.

Spectrum paptros kiln paperBy Julie Farren
Can I say how brilliant the new papyros paper is. I was experiencing problems with the shelf primer sticking to the underside of my products. Creative Glass Guild recommended I try using this new paper and I must say it has been a brilliant move. It doesn't disintegrate like the thin fire paper used to. It looks as though I will be able to re use it as well
