I cannot believe someone got this for $25!!! It cost me $98 plus tax for a 50 pound bag. This stuff is like powdered gold! If I did it over again I would have gone with refrix that Forno offers. I had to use 3 bags and I am not completely finished yet. The guy at my local distributor said the Heatstop 50 is strong and will probably outlive all of us.

Thanks,

Ryan

How funny! That's exactly how I described it to my wife. Do you find yourself making sure you don't spill a drop of it, and using every last bit that you mix? I was scooping the powder out of the bag yesterday and the wind blew some of it... YIKES!

Looks like 2.5 bags of HeatStop will do it for me. I may use the remaining to thinly clad the dome.

I guess some how I am at the other end of the stream. I am not really worried about wasting the heatstop 50. I found it for $25 a bag I even ended up getting a free bag of Heatstop as one of the bags had a rip in it and was on one side at the brickyard. The brickyard said it would just end up in the trash so if you want it take it. They also give me the cracked or chipped firebricks, I'm cutting them anyway and I guess no one else would want them.

I'm also having difficulties finding the correct mortar. Anyone have any ideas about a source in the San Diego area. Local yards tell me they can get the Heat Stop 50, but at a price of over $175 a bag. A bit steep wouldn't you think?

Angry Re: Heatstop 50 offers no strength?

trying to find this treasure also. Local brick dealer says he can order for me.
Heat Stop is for online sales of heatstop 50# bags
HS50 HeatStop 50 (50# bag) ................... $68.75 plus $49.00 shipping

I think this is the right stuff. not cheap though. The correct mortar seem to be a problem. I would buy the FB mix but shipping for three bags is $519.00 this is crazy!

I used Heatstop 50 for my dome bricks, I paid $50.00 per bag and used 3 bags of it. The stuff worked GREAT! I wanted to add some mass and needed a little more for the vent/chimney area and I tried the home brew mix formula. My wallet is sorry I didn't try it sooner. I thought it was a bit stickier than heatstop 50 and it set up nice and solid! 3 parts sand, one part portland, one part lime, and one part fireclay. The next oven I build (if ever) I would use home brew which should be available all over the USA. I have fired my oven many times and the heatstop50 and home brew are both solid and are performing perfectly. I would not use the two different mortars on the dome for fear of different coefficients of expansion.

Good Luck
John

Heat stop is a great product but I am unaware if any one has had issues with the home brew. It worked great for me. The cost and shipping charges made my decision to roll my own a no brainer.
