No, Portland cement, the base material out of which standard concretes are made, can degrade in temperatures as low as 200 degrees F. Because of this, products used within the firebox of a fireplace, or near high temperatures, should be made of refractory cement, which is designed to be able to withstand exposure to high temperatures, rather than Portland cement. Only if the material is being used on the fireplace façade, far enough away from the firebox that it will NOT be exposed to these high temperatures, can the QUIKRETE® Concrete Mix be used.
