  • Fireclay? Refractory Mortar? In Utah?

    Hi all,

    Does anybody know of any local supplier of fireclay and the proper refractory mortar in or near Salt Lake City?

    Thanks,
    Derk

    I just got my hi-temp mortar from Harbison Walker @ 4521 W 1980 S. I'm still looking for fireclay.

      I bought some fireclay from them. Which hi temp mortar did you get?

      The fireclay was cheap, $15.00 or so per bag.

        The mortar was model KS 4V Plus. I didn't even thing to ask them about fireclay. I'll go back and get some this week.

          I am looking for Fire clay also? Are you picking up in person or having to order off line? lots of places around here have the premixed refarctory motar in 1 gallon tubs, but that is pretty expensive.

            Toby,

            I am luck enough to have a Harbison Walker distribution center relatively near to my home.

            Do a google search for Harbison-Walker or ANH. They are refractory people and they have distribution centers in quite a few places.

            I bought 1 bag of refmix from Calif. It was $50 + $20 shipping to get to Utah.

            I then bought 2 bags of fireclay from Harbison-Walker and some lime, silica sand and Portland cement to make homebrew mortar.

              You don't want the premixed stuff. It won't "air-cure" and you will never get the oven hot enough to fully cure it.

                  Well after calling a million places, no one around here sells any Fireclay, some places didn't even know what i was talking about. I looked up that Company u recommended and they sell it and will ship the fireclay to me. (Still waiting on an email with shipping costs, but the clay its self is .34 cents a lb. The salesman was trying to get me to use seirset (spelling) He said this is a tigh tempature air set premixed mortar. Was ondering if anyone else has heard of this stuff?

                  So thanks for the info on ANH

                    Perhaps it could be the terminology. Try asking for mortar clay. The stuff I picked up locally is bagged and labeled as "mortar clay". This is what several local dealers carry when I asked for fireclay.

                      Do a search on the forum for Seriset or some spelling variant. I somewhat remember a negative post on the stuff.

                        I was thinking that the stuff might not be good, when the guy started describing it like "paint"

                          is what you order from them Dry milled Fire clay. I talked to them on the phone and can have it shipped. the stuff is only 34 cents a pound, but they want 30 dollars to ship. but kinda stuck so, i think i will end up ordering it from them.

                            I looked this stuff up on line and i do not think that it would work for WFO.

                              Be sure to ask them if it will air-cure. If it does, it's OK. Otherwise it's best not to use it.
