    Can this be used to replace the floor of a prefabricated fireplace?
    1 Answer
    This can not be used as a fireplace floor. For that, you would want to look at one of our universal panels: Hargrove Replacement Fireplace Refractory Panel - 24 inch X 28 inch Hargrove Replacement Fireplace Refractory Panels - 24 inch X 40 inch - Set of 2

    Would this be good for a basement woodstove to build a frame around the stove to keep it from the foam installation that's covering the basement walls?
    1 Answer
    Yes, this could be used for that purpose.  Please note, however, that using these boards does not reduce the required clearances for the particular stove.

    Jerry
    from Fenwick Island, DE asked:
    April 10, 2020

    I am looking for a material I can use outside behind my BBQ grill to protect the external vinyl covered wall of our house. The grill will be a few inches from the wall in an outdoor island type configuration but in front of the wall. Any suggestions other than moving the grill, to protect the wall would be appreciated.

    1 Answer
    The solution to your problem would be found in the product literature included with your grill or by contacting the manufacturer of your grill directly. You may also contact your local code office to see if any method of clearance reduction would be allowed, but the only definite solution would be to follow the clearance requirements described in the literature for your grill. If the manufacturer doesn't describe a tested and safe method of clearance reduction in this literature, there likely isn't a solution outside of following the minimum clearance requirements.

    What do these panels weigh? Would these panels hold up next to exhaust manifolds in a marine engine compartment?

    1 Answer
    The shipping weight of this pack of two is approximately 15 lbs. While this has an approximate rating for up to 2,100 degrees Fahrenheit, we cannot advise on this particular application.

    Richard C.
    from Connecticut asked:
    March 14, 2020
    What's the best product to reduce the distance from the woodstove to the combustible wall?
    1 Answer
    There is no universal product available to reduce clearances. Clearance reduction, if permitted, is prescribed by the manufacturer of a particular stove, and it is dependent on the stove model. For your application, you would need to check in your installation manual for this information.

    Can this be used in a kiln fires to 1600 degrees as a mold for glass?
    1 Answer
    While this has an approximate rating for up to 2,100 degrees Fahrenheit, we would not recommend installing in a forge or kiln as these conditions would break down the material quickly.

    Kimberly T.
    from Kankakee, IL asked:
    October 22, 2019
    Do I use 1 board or 2 with a blanket?
    1 Answer
    This product is indeed designed for the inside of wood burning appliances. Its purpose is to not only protect the body of the appliance from the heat of the fire but to also maintain high combustion chamber temperatures.  You can layer the board, but we recommend metal panels between panels, not ceramic blanket.

    I'm looking for a kiln that can insulate 1600 degrees celsius. Will this board work?
    1 Answer
    While we do not have a specific temperature rating for this product, the compound itself is rated to approximately 2,100 degrees Fahrenheit. However, we wouldn't recommend using it in a forge or furnace as it would probably decay rapidly in those applications.

    Can this product be used in place of my refractory panels in a wood burning fire place?
    1 Answer
    No, but we do offer universal refractory panels that can be used in a manufactured woodburning fireplace.  Please see the following links:

    <a href="https://www.efireplacestore.com/cpf-42428.html">One 24"h x 28"w Panel</a>

    <a href="https://www.efireplacestore.com/cpf-42440.html">Two 24" h x 40"w Panels</a>

    These panels are about 1" thick and can be cut down to the size you need with a masonry blade or tile saw.  They are suitable for use as side, rear and floor panels inside any manufactured woodburning fireplace.

    You could use this vermiculite board, though we would recommend some kind of noncombustible material be placed on top of it (tile, brick, stone, etc.).

    Can this be used as a base under fire brick for a wood burning pizza oven? 
    1 Answer
    That would not work inside a pizza oven. You could try Hargrove Panels. They are rated over 2000 degrees and are used inside wood burning fireplace.

    They would need to be cured first.

    Perfect replacement
    This was the perfect replacement for a skamol baffle in a scan wood stove that had cracked in two. my husband was able to cut it and shape it just like the original and for a fraction of the cost. We have leftover panels that we will use to replace other pieces.
