We provide solutions for all kinds of brick ovens and cooking applications. Our refractory firebricks, and high-temperature cements and mortar have a fireclay base to assure exceptional high heat capacity. And because our brick requires no priming, there’s no need for the hearth or deck to be fired before you start baking.
From small stoves to large commercial pizza ovens, we have just the right products to help ensure safety, and cooking efficiency.
Our NSF-Certified Food Grade Refractory Products Include:
OVENZZ™ MORTAR — High-alumina, air-setting refractory mortar that is ideal for troweling.
OVENZZ™ BRICK — ASTM C27 super-duty firebrick, available in numerous shapes and sizes. This product is high fired and requires no priming.
OVENZZ™ CAST — Fireclay-based, cement-bonded, dense castable refractory. Suitable for casting shapes, pouring in place, and filling large cracks and holes.
OVENZZ™ LW CAST — Lightweight, insulating castable refractory with extraordinary strength and excellent insulating properties. Suitable for casting shapes, pouring in place, and filling large cracks and holes. OVENZZ™ LW CAST provides a more thermal-efficient solution than dense products. It’s made with GREENLITE® aggregate, a higher-strength insulating product.
Products that are at home outside the oven:
Inswool Ceramic Fiber Blanket - Our INSWOOL® product line includes ceramic fiber blankets, textiles, and bulk fibers, plus insulation board and paper options.
Mortar Mix 413 - Our cement-bonded mortar that, once set, will retain its integrity if exposed to water and outside elements.
