"Hint: Although not mentioned on the packaging it is best to mix a small amount in a separate container by adding water until it's the consistency of toothpaste. Then use a small brush to dab or spread the fire cement onto the individual parts of the broken fire brick or any gaps that need filling. Leave for 24 hours to dry properly."
"I used this fire cement to repair the fire brick in my Stovax open fire place, which had broken into several pieces. I found that by using wet hands to work a lump of cement it became quite pliable and was easy to push into the cracks and gaps, which had been previously wetted using a small water spray. I forgot to tell my wife to allow it to dry for 24hrs before lighting the fire (as per the instructions on the tub) and she lit the fire only a couple of hours after I had done the work. I expected to see the cement crack up but there was no damage at all - not even a small crack. So, well pleased with the results!!"
"This product is easy to work and is excellent value for money. It tends to start to go off quite quickly so don’t hang around. Oh, and its grey in colour by the way, it doesn't state that on the description."
"I used this product to rebuild a log burner, and seal all the joints between the cast iron panels. It is excellent stuff, and although feels a little coarse at first, it will flow when placed in joints and can be finished with a wipe of a wet finger. Also suitable for fixing fire bricks and cracks in fire-backs. Would highly recommend it to anyone. The no nonsense brand seems to be excellent value for money without compromising the products."
"Excellent needed some fire cement to seal some pipes going through a fire rated wall after drilling holes to big ,my normal pipe supplier didn't stock it any more so called into my local screwfiix ,no Problem plenty in stock ,did the job perfect very easy to apply and re- sealed the tub ready for next job Nice smooth finish will use again"
"I purchased this as the reviews highly rated this product against the more expensive brands and i can confirm this is a quality product for a competative price. Would use No Nonsence product again and would recommend to a friend."
"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!"
