Can this product be used to cast a panel having dimensions of 24" x 20" x 1"?

Answer:Yes, you should have plenty material for this job. A similar container of Rutland Castable Cement, in a 25 pound tub, is capable of casting a block as large as 12" x 12" x 1.25".

I want to make a 1-1/2 x 24 x 24 in square slab to use as an oven bottom. Could I use this product? Will it cure at 1-1/2 inch thick?
By Collin C. - NFI Master Hearth Professional on August 5, 2013
Answer:This material is indeed able to be used for this exact purpose. The manufacturer recommends casting any shape thicker than 1 1/4 inches in two stages. For your application, pour a layer approximately 3/4 of an inch thick and allow it to partially set. While the first layer is still soft, pour the second layer. This will ensure that the first layer will have adequate exposure time to oxygen, allowing it to begin the reaction needed to set properly.
