"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?"
"I used this to repair an open fire surround which I built 20 years ago. As part of the repair was directly over the flames, I needed a cement that would withstand several hundred degrees C. This product works well.
Not the easiest to apply and achieve a smooth finish, but with a little patience, I got there in the end. It dries quite quickly (about 30 mins working time) and was fully hardened overnight. Minor cracks appeared on first heating (the tub warns that this might happen) but were easily filled.
One slight caution - I used two tubs of this and the cement from each was not quite the same colour - not important in my case but might be for others."
