  • Refractory cement in vermiculite concrete

    Where in South Australia can I purchase refractory cement or "fondu" as I bellieve it is/was called? I want to create a vermiculite/concrete slab for the base and cover my dome with vermiculite concrete. If I can't buy refractory cement can I use Portland cement with vermiculite (perlite) and if so, will it be prone to cracking?

Where you need refractories is for the mortar between your firebricks, that are directly exposed to the heat of the oven. There are several different ways of doing that: keep reading.
