Red pitch melts at around 110° F so all you need is a hot air gun to melt the small pieces. Or, you may place the small pieces in your pitch bowl and put the bowl in an oven at 300°F, being careful to avoid boiling the pitch. When handling molten pitch, wearing eye protection and a long sleeve shirt are an absolute must. Molten pitch can cause nasty burns.
Made in Germany, our red pitch is delivered in a 2 lbs. aluminum foil tub. (Please note: the pitch may come in broken pieces however this is absolutely fine since it needs to be broken anyway to melt).
