Can this be used to build and outdoor firebox for my outdoor fireplace?

Per the manufacturer, the best product to use is the Rutland Castable Refractory Fireplace Cement - 25 Pound Tub
. This castable cement will offer the ability to be shaped into individual bricks or used as a parge coating. It also offers superior resistance to degradation in the outside elements.

I want to repair the mortar in our old fireplace. Some of the joints where the front face brick attaches to the firebox and between the front face brick need repair. The joints that need to be filled are about 1/2 inch wide and I would like to paint over the mortar. Is this the best product to use for that?

Can this cement be used on the the inside of a freestanding 1950's metal fireplace? There would not be any fireplace tiles laid over it. If so, how much would be needed to cover the interior of a 36" wide firebox?

After speaking to the manufacturer, they have confirmed that none of the refractory cement products that we carry are able to be parged directly to a metal panel. A product such as the Rutland Castable Refractory Fireplace Cement - 25 Pound Tub
would have to be used to make new panels that are based on the size of the metal panels in the fireplace. In other words, measurements of the interior metal panels would need to be taken, then wooden forms would need to be made based on those measurements. The cement could then be poured into the forms to create new cement panels that could then be positioned against the existing metal walls.
