Yes in principle it should hold all the pieces together, but we have never tested our product in this situation.

Yes, providing that it is fully air-dried for at least 24 hours prior to getting wet.
Can this be used to render my pizza oven?
It can be used as ‘render’ per say – this cannot be applied too thick as it can crack. We really recommend our Instant Brick for this kind of project as the formula is more suited to be applied in thicker layers.
The liquid on top of the Hot Spot has leaked on my porcelain tiles and has left a mark, how do I get it off?
This liquid sets once its exposed to air/ heat – so there is no physical way of removing the product – what can be used to lighten the effect is Jif cream as it has a cutting agent in its formula (a test on an inconspicuous area is recommended prior) or a magic eraser.
