It also resists acid and water damage, and meets NFPA 211, 1988 edition and NYSCMA Tek Spec No. 3 requirements.

    Please Note: This mortar contains calcium aluminate cement and crystalline silica. It should not be used without safety goggles, chemical resistant gloves, a rubber apron, and a NIOSH/MSHA-approved dust respirator.

    How much of your product will I need to pour a hearth and firebox the following size (45" long x 18" wide x 2" deep)? Thank you.
    1 Answers
    Ten pounds will cover 1,268 sq. in. with a 1/8" thick coat and you have 1062 sq. in. If you are using this as a parge coating, one 10 pound tub should be sufficient.

    I have a Temco wood burning fireplace insert and I need new bottom and back refractory panels. The panels are no longer available so I've elected to laminate half firebricks to these existing refractory panels. Which product could be used in the lamination process and also work as mortar joints on the back panel? I need these to stick to the existing panels which are cracked and a bit decomposed from the heat.
    1 Answers
    For your installation, we would recommend using Rutland Fireplace Mortar - 10.3 Ounce Cartridge.

    How much water do we mix with this mortar mix to replace the bottom panel of my fireplace?
    1 Answers
    Per the manufacturer, this product requires 1 quart of water per 10 pounds of dry material. If the mix is too dry, add .5 cup to the mix.

    What is the curing/drying time of the Rutland Dry Refractory Mortar 211? It says that it is non-water soluble. Does that mean that is has no water and doesn't need water for curing? Can this mortar mix be used to bind insulating bricks to the steel shell of the furnace?
    1 Answers
    The curing time for this mortar mix is 2 hours. This is a dry mix, so water will be necessary before application. This mortar can stick to masonry, but it can not stick to metal.

    We are trying to tile around our wood stove but we are afraid of the adhesive drying out and the tiles falling off the wall. We have 8"x8" and 8"x16" ceramic for the wall and 18"x18" ceramic for the floor. Is this product good for that our would you suggest something else?
    1 Answers
    This product can indeed be used to set ceramic tile or thin brick veneer against a fireplace facing. This has been the best product I have found for this purpose.

    I built an outdoor fireplace in my backyard out of concrete block and I am ready to install the firebrick (buff colored) in the firebox. Since this is an outdoor fireplace (and in FL), I understand that it is best to use a Non Water Soluble Refractory Mortar. Is this Rutland Dry Mix 211 the correct mortar to use?
    1 Answers
    Per the manufacturer, the best product to use for setting firebrick outdoors is the Rutland Castable Refractory Fireplace Cement - 12.5 Pound Tub. This cement offers excellent resistance to weathering and can fill large irregular gaps without curing issues.

    The mortar around the inside of my fireplace is starting to drop out. The fireplace is thirty or more years old. I would like to chip out the existing old mortar and replace it with new mortar. The mortar is in between a metal frame and the brick. What type of mortar should I use?
    1 Answers
    As long as the mortar joints are 1/4 inch or less in thickness, the product you are now viewing would be an excellent choice. For larger joints, the Rutland Castable Refractory Fireplace Cement - 12.5 Pound Tub is an excellent hydraulic set cement that would be a better choice.

    I need to coat the entire inside of a wood fireplace and just want to know how much I have to clean the old bricks and joints before I put this on? Do I just put this over the bricks, also?
    1 Answers
    While the inside does not have to be perfect, it is recommended to scrub as much of the loose creosote away as possible. Any layered deposits that are left can have enough acid content to degrade the new layer of mortar. This mortar can indeed be parged directly over the bricks.

    Can I use this product alone to coat the inside of a kettle grill to turn it into a oven for making pizza?
    1 Answers
    Theoretically, yes, this product would make a fine liner for an oven. However, I'd be concerned about it's ability to adhere to the full steel surface of the grill. Something like our Stovo mortar may be better for this application as it is suited to adhere to both masonry and metal. Of course, there are no guarantees about the success of such an application.

    I need to build an extension in front of my brick oven, where the stoke hole is. Will this Rutland Dry Refractory Mortar Mix work to fill the joints between the my firebricks?
    1 Answers
    Yes. This refractory mortar mix is the intended product for joining both firebrick and clay flue tiles. It will also not require heat to cure, unlike some other brands of refractory mortar.

    from Holiday, FL asked:

    Can this product be used to set fire brick or clay bricks?
    1 Answers
    Ideally, this product would be best used to parge or finish the joints between firebrick that has already been set. Instead, I recommend using Rutland Pre-Mixed Refractory Fireplace Cement - 1/2 Gallon Tub to set the brick. This product will have better adhesion and is more workable for your application.

    Can this be used as a base bottom plate in prefab fireplace? Can it be 3/4 - 1" thick?

    This product's ideal usage is the repair of firebrick and masonry surfaces. A more appropriate product for your application would be our Castable Cement.

    I have a manmade stone fireplace with a glass door. The outer edge of the door is metal, and there are gaps between the door and the stone because of the stone’s irregular shape. The largest space is maybe 1-1/2”. Can I use this product to seal the edges?
    1 Answers
    This would indeed be a perfectly acceptable product to finish out the door gap. You may need to build the product up at the largest gaps to ensure that it adheres properly. You can do this by filling the gap halfway, then letting it sit for an hour or so before completing the installation. Please let me know if I can assist you further.

    Sets Up Quickly
    This cement was ready to use in a jiffy and the directions were simple to follow. The fireplace surface you are applying it to needs to be clean and slightly wet so I used a brush and water. I was able to finish the entire job with one bucketful.

    Save Time and Money
    Any handyman ? or woman ? could easily do this job. And it will save you hundreds of dollars and lots of time looking for the right panel replacements and even then you might not get a perfect fit. For once, the advertisements were true for this product. I am happy to add my positive feedback to all the other customers who were happy with it!
