Using Noxram 45 to line stove - special precautions needed?

PostBy: glenwoodoak On: Sat Jan 26, 2013 12:25 pm

Hi,

I bought a box of Noxram 45 AS to line my Glenwood Oak. I need to apply the Noxram in my house since I can't move the stove outside and wanted to check if I need to take any special precautions. The box says not to breathe the dust and wear a respirator, but it seems like it is a clay and dust wouldn't be a problem. It also said not to touch to bare skin. I was thinking I would wear gloves and maybe one of those cheap dust masks.

I was mainly worried about fumes or if this was a dangerous material as I have a young son in the house. Also is 45 AS the right product? I saw online they make a few different grades 45, 60, etc where the number indicates the amount of alumina. I read 45 is good for 3000 degrees! Obviously I will never get anywhere close to that temperature, so I wanted to check if there was a lower grade I should be using.

Thanks again

It's the lawyers, it is like any other refractory. They all are dusty and don't need to be ingested as they are made from inorganic materials so use good judgement.
