Default Spray to keep fiber in bead door rigid?

Hi, What is that spray stuff to keep the fiber blanket material from falling off the bead door on the kiln? Mine is in need of serious help but I can't remember the name of it, and have no idea where to get it.
I did search but no luck without knowing what it's called.
Thanks much in advance,

Rigidizing Fiber Kilns
I think it's better to get fresh fiber blanket.

Hi Emiko, I see what you mean after reading the Warm Glass info about rigidizer.

It looks kind of tricky to replace the fiber blanket on the bead door. There are rivits on the outside of the door. Inside are some kind of pins and screws. If I take it apart to look more deeply at how it's attached I'm afraid I'll loose more blanket.

Maybe it makes more sense to buy a new bead door? Ah well. It doesn't need repair right away but I keep picking up pieces of it off the floor.
Thank you for your response!

You could call the manufacturer of the kiln and ask how to replace the blanket.

Why didn't I think of that?
Thanks Emiko!
