One mix powder package of 25 kg makes 11-12 litres of ready-made concrete.
Pour necessary quantity of mix powder into a mixing vessel or mixer.
Add water 20-22% of the weight of the mix (5-5.5 litres per package of 25 kg).
Mix mechanically or manually until the mix becomes totally wet.
Ready-made mixture to be used in 1 hour.
Minimum working temperature +5 0C.
As thermal expansion of steel is greater than fire concrete, the cast must not be reinforced with steel.
Concrete plates with a size not exceeding 600 x 600 or 800 x 400 should be used for hearth reinforcing. Minimum thickness of the plate 50 mm, of wider plates 100 mm.
Concrete permanent expansion of +0.5-0.6% is formed at + 1200 0C.
Setting time of the mix is 4-10 hours, depending on the layer thickness and environmental conditions.
Before usage let the hearth dry 2-3 weeks in open ventilation conditions.
First heating must be performed with small flames and in short cycles. Leave flues open after first heating. Use the hearth in full capacity only after repeated firing-up procedures.
Store mix powder packages in a dry room.
Shelf life of the mix powder is 6 months from the manufacturing date.
