Vitcas Premium Fire Cement

Ensure the longevity and efficiency of your fire bricks, fireplaces, and heating appliances with VITCAS Premium Fire Cement – 1kg. Rated to withstand temperatures up to 1250ºC, this ready-mixed cement is your go-to solution for patching and repairing small cracks in fire bricks, fireplaces, solid fuel ovens, range cookers, boilers, and central heating systems.

Key Features:

  • High Heat Resistance: Engineered to resist temperatures up to 1250ºC, offering reliable performance in the most demanding heat environments.
  • Ready-Mixed Consistency: A convenient ready-to-use putty consistency ensures ease of application for patching and repairs.

Uses:

  • Sealing and Jointing: Ideal for sealing and jointing internal flue pipes to ensure a secure and durable connection.
  • Small Crack Repairs: Effectively repairs small cracks and damage on firebricks, firebacks, fireplaces, gas cookers, stoves, ranges, central heating systems, and boilers.

Application:

  • Preparation: Maximize adhesion by cleaning the area thoroughly, removing dirt, dust, and rust.
  • Application: Use directly from the tub, applying with a trowel, knife, or by hand. Work the cement well into the area, allowing for fine joints.
  • Drying: Gently heat-dry the repaired surfaces as soon as possible, gradually increasing the temperature to full operating levels over 3-4 hours. Apply additional cement to any fine cracks that may appear.

Storage and Safety:

  • Storage: Keep unused material dry and store in a cool, dry place away from children and pets.
  • Safety: In case of contact with skin and eyes, rinse immediately with plenty of water and seek medical advice. Wear suitable gloves and eye/face protection. Keep out of reach of children.

Limitations:

  • Not for Prolonged Water Contact: Use Heatproof Screed or Outdoor Oven Cement for external applications requiring prolonged water resistance.
  • Not for Use as Mortar or Render: Utilize Vitcas Heatproof Mortar for mortar needs and Vitcas Fireplace Render for rendering applications.
