    Hello, I am planning on building a forge and was wondering where I can get some itc-100, satanite, and a ceramic blanket,

    Hi Oiler,

    There are some wholesalers like Alliance Refractories in Edmonton. They really only sell by the pallet.

    I've ordered online and the supply houses in Ontario seem to be pretty good.
    Tuckers and Pottery Supply House are two that I have dealt with. Ask them for coatings with similar properties. If you want Satanite or ITC by brand, you'll probably have to bring it in from the States yourself.

    Yes, the cost of shipping sucks, especially from the US. But within Canada, the slow-boat Canada Post is fairly reasonable. I've come to realize that the cost of shipping in many cases is cheaper than driving around looking for shite. ;)

    The sounding stone in Winnipeg has hard fire bricks and ceramic blanket. They also carry a few hundred clay types but not Satanite, for that you will have to find out what is the equal.

    https://www.soundingstone.com/

    they also sell pyrometers for mounting in a forge or kiln even have digital displays if you like. Any of the kiln furniture they carry comes from a company in BC. Don't know who since they would not say when I asked.

    Thanks for the replies, what would be a reasonable price for itc-100? pottery supply house has 500mls for 125 cad plus 12.50 shipping. it seems like that is quite expensive or is that a reasonable/regular price?

    Maybe not too far off. High Temp has it for US$70 a pint. Factor exchange and shipping and there ya go. Are there specific reasons for using ITC-100?

    No specific reasons for using itc-100. it just seems like that is what most people use and they seem to like it

    Any lining material will work if rated for the temperature you expect to see and ITC-100 is an easy one to get in the states much like Satanite

    I used the Imperial stove & furnace cement 1482°C (2700°F) and gooped it all inside with a stick to protect the ceramic blanket. It's probably not as efficient as ITC-100 and it does flake off here and there, but a trip to Canadian Tire and $13 later I have enough to line three forges. ;)

    I was planning on using the stuff from Canadian tire and then coating it with itc-100. from what I understand itc-100 is mainly for reflecting the heat back into the forge

    Yes, for sure you will realize some fuel/time savings and get better temperatures with a good IR reflective coating. Is it worth $125? Not sure.

    Ya, the 125$ is the only thing that makes me hesitate buying it.

    I dont know about the availability of them in Canada but I've heard Metrikote and Plistix are comparable to ITC-100 for an IR coating and a whole lot cheaper.

    That's awesome. Be sure to take some pictures of your build. Lots of us here would like to see it coming together.
