Slip Casting with HeatShield®
RMR offers an experienced slip casting service to effectively repair your damaged chimney flue. We use an excellent product called HeatShield® which provides the strength of high-fired ceramics and the heat resistance of cerfractory cement.
After a thorough cleaning and prep of the clay tile, we prepare the HeatShield® product. A custom-cut foam applicator is then placed at the bottom of the flue and is attached to a wench mounted on top of the chimney and pulled by a cable. Next, the tie coat is applied to the flue tiles and pulled up through the chimney. This acts as a primer for the HeatShield® application. The HeatShield® material will now fill the open voids and restore the integrity of the flue system.
