    when i contacted John @ Galaxy Outdoors Las Vegas.... for tiles a fire basket and other things to restore my K7 he sent me a dry product to coat and or fill didnt really say what the content was.. but said he sold it to customers who wanted to prolong the life interior of the kamado... i used to fill the cracks and wiped it clean with a sponge only filling cracks.. this spring 3 yrs later and hundreds of cooks... developed a crack from the lower damper door half way around to back.. i used this after cleaning and wetting before applying with a rubber float an actual coating on the lower half under the fire box only about an 1/8 to a 1/16 thick... so far so good holding up well..
