    Customer Questions & Answers
    By Thomas from Erie, PA on May 27, 2014
    How many square feet would I get per tub? Also I have an old cast iron stove with a series of firebrick. I want to make a spherical form and use this to cast a perfect cylinder. This is an indoor 1948 warm morning stove. Would this application work?
    By eFireplaceStore on May 28, 2014

    This 25 pound tub will offer 2 square feet of coverage when applied at 1 1/4 inch of thickness. It is not recommended to spread the product any thinner than 3/4 of an inch. This castable cement is indeed the perfect product to use for creating custom shapes.

    By Jason from Tampa, Florida on November 2, 2013
    Up to how many degrees can this withstand?
    By Kevin E. - NFI Certified Specialist on November 3, 2013

    This castable cement is appropriate for applications with temperatures as high as 2,200.

    Is this a liquid or a powder to which you add water?
    By Collin C. - NFI Master Hearth Professional on October 22, 2012

    This is indeed a dry mix material that must have water added prior to application. The manufacturer recommends 1 quart of water per 12 1/2 pounds of material.

    I have a prefabricated wood-burning fireplace that was converted to gas by the previous homeowner. We'd like to convert it back to wood burning. According the our chimney sweep, the people that installed the gas drilled a 1 inch hole outside of the designated place for gas to be drilled into the fireplace. Can this Rutland castable refractory fireplace cement be used to fill in that hole?
    By Will M. on August 25, 2015

    Actually, there should be a 1/2" black iron pipe running into the opening that can simply be capped. If the gas line is to be removed, the refractory panel must be replaced and cannot be repaired.

    I have a cracked cement fireplace log. What do you have to repair this?
    By Will M. on May 24, 2016

    When refractory logs crack, they cannot be repaired and must be replaced.

    By Wade from Little Rock, AR on October 29, 2014
    My BR-36 Majestic fireplace has developed cracks in the back panel. Can the Rutland cement be used to repair these?
    By eFireplaceStore on October 29, 2014

    The best product to use is the Rutland Masonry Fireplace Patch - 1.5 Pound Tub. Please keep in mind that this will be a temporary solution, with the panel eventually needing replacement.

    By Ed from Cleveland, OH on February 25, 2014
    Hello, can this product be successfully applied at low temperatures (specifically, at temperatures in the 15-30 degree Fahrenheit range)?
    By Collin C. - NFI Master Hearth Professional on February 25, 2014

    Per the manufacturer, an application temperature down to 0 is acceptable for this product. This is a chemical reaction aided product and mixture of water to the dry cement mix creates a small amount of heat, aiding the cure and preventing the product from curing improperly in cold temperatures.

    does its job, but...
    from Great Fallson
    September 10, 2016
    I would recommend this item to a friend.
    I needed a refractory mortar for outside use and this was recommended and will presumably do the job. It was, however, very difficult to use, even with the very detailed instructions. It sets up so quickly that there is no moving the firebricks. Set one in place and it stays there.
    For an outdoor fireplace it is important to have a refractory mortar that can hold up to rain and snow. Instructions are very good.
    A little difficult to mix and very difficult to use. The bricks will not slide for adjustment once put in place-it sets very, very quickly.

    Thank you Rutland... Easy to use and works great

    I would recommend this item to a friend.
    I have an old large fireplace that uses large firebrick. Well after so many years, some of it broke. I needed a solution to cast my own bricks. Enter Rutland. Got it home, added the water, mixed in it's own bucket and pour into mold. Set up in a few hrs. Hard and ready to use in 24. Didn't have to heat treat it. Just had to bring up the heat in the fireplace gradually. We have been up and running the fireplace for 3 months now, everything is great. So happy we chose this castable cement.
    Easy to use Fast setting No fuss
