Firebrick Stain Colors

Uses:

This product is commonly specified by architects in order to offer a unique look. Sometimes the light natural color of the firebrick detracts from the room’s color scheme, especially if the firebox is large and/or the homeowner does not plan to build fires.

Application:

Firebrick can be stained before lay-up to provide a contrast to the mortar color or after lay-up for a monochromatic look; however, for best results apply after firebox has been constructed.

Use a wire brush to loosen the light layer of soot on the brick before applying stain to an existing “working” fireplace.

Shake can vigorously for 30 seconds.  Apply stain with a bristle brush.  Apply a second coat if a darker appearance is desired.  Some colors may require 3-4 coats to obtain an opaque look.  Please allow 24 hours to completely dry. The wet color of the stain is not indicative of the end result color.

Rubbing dry “stained” firebrick with a damp sponge creates a more washed effect.   Stains may be mixed to obtain custom effects.

Notes:

This product is specifically formulated to coat Alsey products.  Firebrick with different porosities may require a heavier application or a slightly longer dry time. 

Mortar must be cured before stain can be applied. Do not add stain to wet mortar mixture.

Firebrick must be completely dry; any moisture within the brick could affect the adhesion of stain after it is cured.
