Exclamation Fire Clay

Just ran across this. May be of interest to those starting a oven who may have Code concerns.

1/2/2008
Dear Valued Firebrick Customers:
Whitacre Greer manufactures quality firebrick that comply with ASTM C-27 (Low
Duty) and ASTM C-1261. Whitacre Greer also carries Heat Stop products for
resale. Heat Stop is a line of refractory mortars that complies with ASTM C-199.
Whitacre Greer firebrick and Heat Stop refractory mortars meet or exceed the
requirements of local and national building codes and are certified by Whitacre
Greer as such.
Whitacre Greer also carries fireclay for resale. Fireclay has many uses for
residential, commercial, and industrial applications. In some instances fireclay is
incorporated into homemade/jobsite mortar mixes for firebrick and clay flue
installations in fireplaces and chimneys; however, with changes to building codes in
recent years, these mixes no longer meet the codes or the codes’ intent. Fireclay is
not refractory mortar and jobsite mixes utilizing fireclay are not refractory mortar,
no matter the percentages of the mix or the items included in the mix. They simply
do not meet the code.
It is Whitacre Greer’s intent to inform our customers and to offer products of the
highest standard for fire safety in accordance with the building codes. Please contact
Whitacre Greer with any specific questions.
Sincerely,
Colby DeHoff
Whitacre Greer

Staining firebrick is often a cost-effective way to get the color you want especially if the fireplace is already built.

Staining or painting firebrick is moronic. Light a fire and the firebrick are black.

I coat the inside of my dome with a mix that makes it white. When the carbon burns away you are left with a nice bright white dome. Works for me.

I understand what he was saying or doing but don't understand why it is in reply to my post? I did not ask anything but wanted to help those who might get into trouble with code issues
