Please forgive my newbie ignorance, but I just purchased two cans of:
Refractory Cement (Thin with water)
Kiln patch (contents may settle and solidify. Stir with putty knife.}
I need to do some repairs on my Skutt electric kiln.
Am I correct in thinking that the cement is for the pits and holes
on the bottom? And that the kiln repair is to put on and IN, cracks in the
bricks? Sould it be thin enough to paint?
I also need to temporarily form a small wall around a part of element
on one brick that was
broken off when I bought it. Would I use the cement for that?
I already tried forming some in my hand...and it won't stick
to anything, but I guess gravity coule hold it in place.
Is it supposed to actually stick to the kilnbricks?
This stuff came with zero instructions. Thank you very much in
I'm going to be replacing all bad bricks, and elements soon, but I need
