3/8″ thick strongly felted natural fiber pad specially processed with carbon to resist heat. This makes a great cooling pad next to the lathe, on your bench, or in a cart. While it does not have the extreme heat resistance of vermiculite or fiber frax it eliminates the dangerous dust associated with both.
Very hot glass will leave a scorch mark on the pad surface. With repeated scorching the pad will thin and lose it’s insulating ability.
The glass will remain clean with no surface residue even if it was hot enough to scorch the pad.
It also works great as a prep pad for holding tools or parts ready to seal without the risk of picking up dirt or dust on your glass or tools from your bench bench.
