Frequently Asked Questions

How thick does Insul Cast need to be applied?

Insul Cast is typically cast 2” thick under the hearth, behind the firebox or over the oven dome. It may be cast thicker. 

Once Heat Stop has been Installed, how long do I need to wait before applying heat? 

It's best to wait one day after the masonry is installed in a chimney or fireplace for a firebrick or clay flue lining before applying heat.

What ASTM specs and building codes are in place for fireplace and chimney construction?

Building codes require refractory products that meet ASTM C-199 (medium duty) for fireplace and chimney construction. All Heat Stop products (including the castable products Insul Stick, Insul Cast and Heat Cast 40) meet or exceed this ASTM C-199 (medium duty) requirement. Firebrick must meet the ASTM C-27 requirement, and clay flue lining must meet the ASTM C-315 and ASTM C-1283 requirements. ASTM C-105 is a discontinued specification for fireclay and should NOT be used in fireplace and chimney construction. Fireclay mixes with regular mortar do not meet current building codes.

Can I color Heat Stop and Heat Cast products?

Heat Stop 50 and Heat Cast 40 can be colored to match a desired mortar color. Its recommended to follow the color manufacturer's instructions to ensure a best results. Prism and Solomon are two known color agent companies.
