What is the purpose of the lintel angle kit and expansion tape? Is it essential to be used with the parging mix?

Answer:This lintel angle kit is designed to provide support for the parging mix at the back side of the lintel bar. The kit provides an extended bracket that will mount on the top side of the lintel, then the parging mix can be applied to create a smoke shelf above the lintel.
You do not necessarily need to use this lintel kit if you are just making repairs with the parging mix, as the currently installed lintel bar may already be deep enough to support the smoke shelf.
