    Ed
    from Cleveland, OH asked:
    February 25, 2014
    Can this product be successfully applied at low temperatures (specifically, at temperatures in the 15-30 degree Fahrenheit range)?
    1 Answer
    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.

    Is this a liquid or a powder to which you add water?
    1 Answer

    I would recommend this item to a friend.
    does its job, but...
    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.
    ProsFor an outdoor fireplace it is important to have a refractory mortar that can hold up to rain and snow. Instructions are very good.
    ConsA 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 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.
