Mortar is used to bond both dense firebricks and insulating firebricks.
We generally aim to have quite thin joints below 3mm. The refractory mortar holds everything together while at the same time allowing for a movement point at temperature. Our standard mortars are rated to 1600C and are supplied premixed in drums. A quick stir is generally all that is required to mix the product to get it ready to use.
We also supply specialty mortars for higher temperature up to 1800C and mortar to meet the demands of products such as Silicon Carbide or Zirconia bricks. Some applications require a dry mortar, supplied in a bag and mixed to need by the client.
Please contact us to discuss your refractory mortar requirement and we will be pleased to assist
