TIP when using Domestic Fireplace Mortar. For best results:
- Mix all of the contents in the container thoroughly before using.
- If, after mixing, the product still appears dry, add a little clean water and remix thoroughly.
- For firebrick installation, keep the joints 1/16″ to 1/8″ thick.
This product may take longer to dry if the joints are thicker than 1/8″, and/or if conditions are extremely humid (such as after a recent rain). To enhance drying in such conditions, open the damper, place a fan in front of the firebox, build a fire in it, or use others means to get some air or heat passing by the installation.
