Alsey Flue-Set Non-Water Soluble Refractory Mortar
Dry, hydraulic setting, non-water soluble, medium duty refractory mortar developed for use with firebrick and clay flue tile.
Clay flue tile and firebrick installations--accepted and approved by all national building codes including The International Code Council, The International Residential Building Code and The National Fire Protection Association.
Tuckpointing and patching—large areas may be patched, but when considering length, width and thickness, the smallest dimension of the area to be patched should not exceed 1”. If the smallest dimension exceeds 1” then ALSEY Hi-Cast should be used.
Recommended for outdoor fireplaces and barbecue pits if protected from rain for 24 hours.
Mix 50lb bag with 3.75 quarts of clean water or .75 quarts per 10 lbs of dry product until completely blended. A 50-lb. bag will yield 60 lbs. of refractory mortar when properly mixed with water.
Complete set time is between 48 and 72 hours; however, only mix what can be utilized within 15 minutes; do not retemper (the addition of water after the chemical reaction has begun). The use of warm water will accelerate setup. For best results, please allow seven days before heat is applied. Joint thickness should be thin (1/16” – 1/8") for clay flue tile. A thicker joint may be used when laying up firebrick. Approximately 35 to 40 lbs. of prepared mortar will lay up one hundred 9x4½x2½” straights.
Do not add additives such as fireclay, sand, cement, or other accelerators.
