A heat cure is the process of removing any remaining moisture from your cement by slowly applying heat. It is a necessary step to complete the adhesion process for several of our cements and mortars. The label on your cement will indicate if a heat cure is required or not.
How do I perform a heat cure?
Begin by starting a kindling fire and allowing it to burn for up to one hour. Then, gradually build the kindling fire up to a roaring fire (at least 500°F) and allow the larger fire to burn for an additional hour. The entire process should take approximately 2 ½ to 3 hours.
