"I needed to fix a metal deflector at the front of an open fireplace to stop smoke entering the room and bought this to seal the gaps. I ended up using it to fix the metal in place too (it was a snug fit and this stuff is so solid that it did away with the need for screws). I left it to dry for the recommended 24 hours and have had a few good fires since with no signs of cracking and a nice tidy seal. It stuck to the aluminium plate as well as to the brickwork and smoothed down easily using a gloved finger. I'd give it 5 for reliability too, but won't know for sure for a few years!"
"i would just like to say No Nonsense Fire Cement 2kg is very cheep to buy and good value for money ,its very strong and easy to use even for the d.i.y person as well as the professional ,this really is a walk in the park ,all you have to do is follow the instructions ps - i hope this helps anyone who is after fire cement 10 / 10 for me"
"great product, there was a little shrinkage was the fire was lit, but nothing to worry about. A second coat works a treat. Good value for money, just a pain trying to find it in the catalogue. I have used other named brands a they have been a less quality so I am happy to continue to use this product"
"Needed some fire cement to reseal my wood burner chimney after sweeping.
Does exactly what is says on the tin, goes on ok with a latex glove, not too much mess and dries fine.
Only gripe is that the tub is huge for a job like this, i used a scoop out of the top and cant really see it lasting till next year without going hard - mind you at £3 i dont mind throwing it away and buying another next year.
Perhaps a small tub at a pound for people doing single jobs?"
"This is an exceptionally good value product, difficult to find in the catalogue but the local branch found it instantly. A good quality product which is easy to apply and provided you follow the instructions works very well. This product from other retail outlets is approx the same price for only 1KG. Would certainly use again. ID"
"This works very well and saves trying to mix it yourself. The product smoothes well and dries to a perfect finish. I think the value is ok unless you need a lot of it. there seems to be no option other than the small tubs of cement provided. So far so good. I have not yet tried a fire in the hearth though, so i would love to reserve judgement."
