hi mate,

is there any reason why you can't just use a fireproof cement mortar?

I would do but tried everywhere to get it,the only thing they seem to have is either tile adhesive,or heat resistant plaster (siva Alci)

a bit confused for a moment as fireproof cement is available at any decent builders merchant. then i noticed from another post you mention that you are in turkey? is that where the property is?

my brother in law is a stone mason and has been making and fitting granite fireplaces for years in jersey.

he tells me that he never uses fireproof cement and never has. just ordinary cement mortar and never had one fail. and in a tiny place like jersey he'd know about it if one were to fail so you might want to consider just normal mortar.
