    Joe
    from Gilbert, AZ asked:
    January 30, 2018
    What materials could I skim coat with this product to make an acceptable firebox for a decorative natural gas fireplace? CMU blocks? Cement board like Hardie backer? Non-refractory concrete? If any of these would be acceptable, please give appropriate thickness of application. Thanks!
    1 Answer
    While this product works great for repairing existing masonry, we can't really recommend using it for creating a fireplace from the ground up. However, it is worth pointing out that currently available gas fireplaces require very minimum clearances to combustibles. As such, you can frame up an opening from standard 2x4s and install a gas fireplace therein with no concerns about heat transfer.

    from Princeton, NJ asked:

    Can I skim coat the entire inside of my cracking firebrick with refractory cement? Or do I have to remove any loose chunks and plug it with refractory?
    1 Answer
    Skim coating the interior surface will indeed take care of the issue. Before skimming the surface, I recommend using a hammer and cold chisel to remove as much of the existing mortar as possible. Even if it has not appeared to crack or separate yet, this will help to ensure that further separation will not occur later on and cause cracking of the refractory mortar surface.

    from Charlotte, NC asked:
    March 19, 2013
    Can this be used on drywall to "fire proof" it?
    1 Answer
    I do not recommend using this material to skim over the existing drywall. This mortar can only be applied effectively to masonry or stone and will not provide an effective heat barrier for the drywall. In fact, the material can absorb heat and possible cause the drywall to reach temperatures that are too high.

    Jim
    from Connecticut asked:
    October 9, 2012
    Can this product be used to patch the refractory panels in my fireplace?
    1 Answer
    While this product could be used, ideally you would use a product such as the Rutland Masonry Fireplace Patch, as it is formulated to adhere to irregular holes and cracks. The fireplace cement is better designed to skim coat an existing layer of firebrick.
