I am sorry but fire cement is used inside stoves and possibly around chimney collars. Quarry tiles should not be put inside a stove, they may explode upon heating. If you are asking about sticking tiles to a stove surround then the first thing to say is DO NOT stick them to wood. Stick them to one of the insulating fire-proof boards such as Asbestolux, leaving an insulation air gap behind that board or fill the void with mineral wool. I used a heat resistant tile cement from B&Q on my boat and I have heard of others using silicon or cork glue. If using the latter make very sure all the fumes have dispersed before lighting the stove. AT this time of year silicon sealer may be the best option. Tony Brooks
