Black Fire Cement is finely ground putty-like material which is resistant to high temperatures.
• For sealing and jointing internal flue pipes
• Repairing small cracks and damage on firebricks
• Repairing firebacks
• Seals and small repairs on fireplaces, gas cookers, stoves and ranges, central heating systems and boilers.
For maximum adhesion, remove all dirt, dust and rust, and make sure the area is thoroughly clean.
Premium Fire Cement should be used straight from tub. Apply with a trowel, knife or hand and work well into the area. Fine joints can be made. As soon as possible, gently heat dry the repaired surfaces, gradually raising the heat to full operating temperature over 3-4 hours. Apply further cement to any fine cracks which may appear.
Keep any unused material dry and store in a cool dry place away from children and pets. In case of contact with skin and eyes rinse immediately with plenty of water and seek medical advice.
