Vicar Industries LLC is an online dealer and distributor for a wide variety of building supply products used in the masonry construction industry. We provide products that meet the demanding needs of today’s masons, construction managers, contractors, chimney sweeps, architects, facilities managers, designers, installers, maintenance professionals and homeowners.
Through our contacts and resources, we source many construction products for the DIY market, as well as the trade. We provide an efficient, cost-effective way to obtain many sought-after building supply products, with an emphasis on those used to build, repair, restore, and clean fireplaces, chimneys, residential and commercial ovens, and other masonry surfaces. Some of our featured product lines include:
We carry the Heat Stop® brand of refractory mortar products. The Heat Stop product line was developed in the 1970’s after research indicated that existing products used in fireplace and chimney construction were not high-temperature resistant, were not acid resistant, or were water soluble. Armed with technology from the U.S. industrial refractories industry and determined to succeed, the firm developed a formulation with the appropriate characteristics that addressed these problems. U.S. and Canadian patents were awarded. Over the years, several additional mortar products were developed and existing products were improved. Today, Heat Stop Refractory Mortar is the industry standard throughout North America for mortar used in high temperature resistant masonry construction.
Our industrial line of refractory products is made to withstand the harshest environmental conditions. These products, different from our construction and light commercial line, are designed to meet the exacting standards for strength, wear resistance and insulating properties required for industrial applications in the aluminum, iron & steel, glass, and chemical industries, to name a few. Select commercial grade products are also used by home forge and blacksmith enthusiasts to meet their needs. To meet this demand, we have partnered with HarbisonWalker International (HWI). With more than 150 years of industry leadership, HWI is the largest supplier of refractory products and services in the United States. Headquartered in Pittsburgh, Pennsylvania, the Company's network spans all across North America with 19 manufacturing plants, 30 global sourcing centers, and an advanced technology & research center in West Mifflin, PA.
