Paragon SC-2 Silver Art Clay & Glass KilnKSC2S SC2
The digital electric SC-2 kiln fires silver art clay, decals or transfers, china paint, enameling, and glass in minutes up to 1050°C The SC-2 is popular with seminar teachers and hobbyists because it fires fast, plugs into a standard 13amp, 240 volt household socket.
The basic SC2 has been in production since 1997. It is a proven design that Paragon Kilns have steadily refined every year. Thousands of artists in the U.S., Canada, Europe, and Japan love their cherished SC-2. Just 3 buttons on the simple to use computer give you amazing control over a wide range of firing times and temperatures. It fires automatically at the rate and temperature you enter. A large, brightly lit display prompts for firing rate, temperature and hold time. Use the hold feature to automatically soak any type of clay silver to its recommended time.
The high-tech ceramic fibre firing chamber is wrapped in a steel inner case. The outer steel case remains cool due to the layer of air between it and the inner case. In addition, the case is slotted for air circulation. Electrical components, located in the base, stay cool even at extended hold times.
The fast-firing element is embedded in the firing chamber shell. The SC-2 heats from the sides and back. Each kiln includes a 1/4” thick ceramic fiber shelf.
Why is a ceramics company selling a glass/ silver kiln?
Hobby Ceramicraft are the original Paragon kiln stockists in the U.K. having sold large numbers of ceramic kilns here over the years. We also host the Paragon kiln service and maintainance seminars in the U.K. of a fairly regular basis. We ship our kilns in quantity by sea in 20 and 40 foot shipping containers. This means we can add a few small glass or silver clay kilns into the container at a very low freight cost per kiln. We pass this saving on to the customer, making the sc2 an extremely well priced model. Note also; we always include a furniture kit in our price.
