RUTLAND Castable Refractory Cement is an exceptionally strong dry-mix cement that chemically sets and dries as hard as a brick. Just add water!

Direction

Stir the dry contents of the container thoroughly. Using a plastic bucket or container, add one quart of cool, clean water per 12.5 lbs. dry mix. Only mix an amount that can be used within 20-30 minutes after adding water as the cement sets up fast. Mix thoroughly, taking care not to lose any water. While wearing gloves, take a handful of the material and form it into a ball. Toss the ball an inch into the air a dozen times. If it breaks apart, it is too dry. If it slumps or sags down through the fingers, it is too wet. Excess water lowers the strength of the bond and increases the time needed to set.

Firebox: Dampen work area lightly with water. Put into place and pat it to remove air pockets. Do not smooth to a slick finish as this prevents water from escaping.

Casting: The form or mold must be waterproof to prevent absorption of water from the mixture, as water is needed for the hardening process. Apply release agent, such as cooking spray, to the form or mold. Pour mixture into the mold and smooth by patting thoroughly to remove air pockets, but do not smooth to a slick finish as this prevents water from escaping.

Setting and Firing: Let set at 60°F or above for 24 hours. Do not permit the surface to dry out during this period. Dried castable cement still contains chemically combined water that is given off as steam at higher temperatures. Therefore, heat slowly when first starting fire.

  • Researched and ordered my fireplace from US FIreplace Store. Pricing was a fair value however, the customer service was EXCELLENT! I had an issue with the direct vent venting. I called US Fireplace and the correct items were sent out the next day AND Janessa stayed on top of my return authorization and sent me the permissions and documents I needed to return the incorrect item and no cost to me, including return shipping. Overall, I am a very satisfied customer and my fireplace looks and operates flawlessly. I am glad that I selected US FIreplace to source my direct vent fireplace. Thank you for the great service.

  • I had placed an order, through Lowe's Home Improvement, for an Electric Firebox: Revillusion RBF42. Ordered 1st part of January. Was told I would have it in 3 weeks. When checking to see is it came in, was told it was delayed to 3/15. Was then told is was delayed until 4/25. Waited until 4/27 to check on it. Was then told it was now delayed until August. This firebox was going in a new Sun Room addition. I could not get my final inspection until the Firebox was installed. I went on line and googled for this same product. US Fireplace Store web site was given to me. This was on a Saturday. I call and reached a very nice man. Explain what I was look for. He checked and told me they had 30 of them in stock. I almost fell out of my chair. I clarified with him the product I was wanting. I ask how soon could I get it. He told me it would ship today. Again, was amazed. It arrived on the following Monday. What a pleasure and a relief working with US Fireplace Store and their employees. Exceed my expectations.

  • Great prices, quick delivery and fast hassle free services on the issue I encountered. I had purchased an electric fireplace unit that would not fit into the existing fireplace space. With one email I was able to get the wrong fireplace refunded and picked up at my home at no extra cost and the new one I purchased and delivered free of charge. Great company.
