    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 Answer
    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.

    How much water do we mix with this mortar mix to replace the bottom panel of my fireplace?
    1 Answer
    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.

    from Abu Dhabi, UAE asked:
    December 16, 2014
    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 Answer
    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.

    Before applying this inside a wood fireplace, how much do the old bricks and joints have to be cleaned? Do I just put this over the bricks also?
    1 Answer
    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.

    1 Answer
    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.

    Can this product be used to seal the edges of a glass door on my stone fireplace?
    1 Answer
    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.

    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!
