Anxious to cure - is it time?
I completed the dome brickwork last weekend, but it got too cold here in Salt Lake to finish the second arch and vent detail.
I used a pre-mixed refractory mortar called "Mullitex-B," and the folks at the brick store I use indicated that this mortar only cures in the presence of 200-300 degree temperatures.
It has been a week since I fitted the keystone in place, and I have left the form I used for the last few courses in place all this time. I do not have the blanket insulation is place yet.
I am anxious to cure what work I have done so far. Does it sound okay if I cure the dome this next week, then next spring when I finish the rest, to cure the oven over again?
Is it okay to cure without insulation?
I'm a little concerned about removing my form and having the last few courses fall in over the winter if I don't get the dome curred.
Thanks in advance for any insight.
