Default Re: FB Materials List

James, newbie here, I am at the stage of pouring my hearlth slabs. to this point the materials list has been very helpfull. This an amazing source of info and materials .was a bit disappointed that my orders for 5 bags of refrax are on a boat coming from Italy. (backorder - late April) what is my best choice - a no name refracory mortar from 2 local suppliers OR should I give the 1-3-1-1 recipe a try. Really wanted the Refrax, but can't wait. So what is my best alternative?
Thanks - Randy - RTflorida

Hey Randy,
Sorry we ran out of Refrax. We've upped our order with our next container (though that doesn't help you).

If cost is less of an issue, you should look for HeatStop50. That is a 50lb bag of dry, premixed refractory mortar made in the states. It is more heat resistent than the 1-3-1-1 Portland cement mix. I have never used it myself, but I know that other builders have.

Let us know if you find it.
