Using aqua boards around a multi fuel stove

#1
Hi , we had a multi fuel stove installed 18 months ago the fire place had Been closed up for 40 or so years and seamt quite damp when opened up ,it was lined with fire proof cement which started to swell and turn black through the painted surface . We decided to remove the stove and remove all the cement back to the bare brick to let it dry out through the summer , can I Re- line the opening with aqua boards to stop any remaining damp coming back through or will these boards break down with the heat ?. I then intend to use brick slips on top of the boards , any thoughts please .
We would be grateful for any advice .
Thanks Brucew44.

Firmacel power panels are the best pal it’s a reinforced cement board

normally opening up a fireplace wil help with the damp... especially if it was not able to breath :D

Mac metal craft in coninsboriugh is where I get mine from, they stock loads of Alli fuel gear and have a good show room too.
