RapidSet is a calcium aluminate cement.
It is sold in Home Depot.
Here is a link to the MSDS PDF:


It's cheaper than the refractory sold a Menard's by quite a bit.
It's available in at least some of the Home Depots that do not carry fireclay.

Has anyone used this material in a rocket stove or mass heater?

2700F melting/boiling point...   interesting...  but it is also 45% limestone, im guessing it would be great for the mass area.   as far as the burn chamber and feed tube, and riser (flame path) i would like to see some testing done on it, because of the lime content...

it might work, but i only know one way to find out, test it...

it looks like very unhealthy stuff, many safety and health hazzards so be careful if you work with that stuff.
Forget this weirdo. You guys wanna see something really neat? I just have to take off my shoe .... (hint: it's a tiny ad)
