- For estimating purposes approximately 50 lbs. will lay up 100 firebricks (2 ½ inch thick) if joint thickness is 1/16 to 1/8 inch as recommended.
- Joint thickness up to 1/2 inch is acceptable with this product and is quite common.
- Add clean water (approximately 3/4 to 1 quart) for each 10 lbs. and mix thoroughly. No other additives required.
- Cold water works best. Warm water quickens set time. Do not remix or re-temper this product as you would with a regular mortar.
