Fireproof Mortar


Hello, Can anyone find what is in Fireproof mortar and what the mix proportions are. I need to build a fireback in refractory bricks and can't find a mix design anywhere.

Fireproof Mortar


it seems quik-crete does not make a refractory mortar. Everything I have found is it is a special mortar and is not a simple mix in the field variation of standard mortar.


the only mix I could find for something other than refractory mortar is this fireclay recipe.

Muddox Fireclay Mortar
Fireclay mortar is used when building ovens or fireplaces with firebrick. Mix one part fireclay mortar, to two parts cement, to six parts sand.

A local masonry supplier will have refractory mortar, it is not something you are going to find at typical lumberyard, hardware store, or big box store.

I agree with troubleseeker. The Big Home Improvement stores sell what the average home owners need.
Refractory mortar is not in big demand with them.

You can also try Fireplace stores/ fireplace & stove suppliers.

Fire clay is a poor substitute for refactory cement.
