What Is Eldfast Ceramic Chimney Lining?
As the name suggests, the Eldfast is a lining made wholly of ceramic. It is specially designed to withstand high temperatures and resist acid condensation damage.
Combustion by-products like creosote and soot contain acid which can damage the flue and other parts like the midfeather. These acid attacks can accelerate the wear and tear process for your chimney. Hence, it is imperative to have a liner like Eldfast that is created to resist acid attacks.
Why Choose Eldfast Lining?
The Eldfast ceramic chimney lining is hardwearing. It is guaranteed to work efficiently for 25 years! In fact, it may even last for 60 years with regular servicing.
It holds up well to thermal stress, capable of tolerating extremely high temperatures without incurring any damage. What happens instead is that it vitrifies and becomes even stronger when subjected to soaring temperatures.
It also minimises heat transfer to adjacent structures better than other types of liners. This is why homes with this lining are less susceptible to chimney fires.
The Eldfast lining’s ability to resist acid condensation is what sets it apart from other liners. Its resilience to acid attacks protects the flue and chimney from damages and ensures their longevity.
It creates a smoother flue which reduces turbulence and makes the chimney gas tight. This eliminates worries of toxic fumes like carbon monoxide leaking into rooms. Moreover, its ability to withstand thermal stress and acidity prevents the development of weak spots on the chimney system where gases can leak.
Fit for All Types of Chimney
The Eldfast lining is suitable for all kinds of chimneys, be it the stone or glass flue block type. Any kind of fuel can also be used with this liner.
Moreover, it is compatible with all types of flue sizes since the paste is just 4mm thick. Since it conforms to the current contours of the chimney, the interior cross-sectional area is preserved. You don’t have to worry about a significant reduction in the size of your flue!
This lining can be installed with minimal disturbance to your house. It does not necessitate removing any brickwork or breaking into the flue unlike other in-situ liners. This is also one of the reasons why installation period does not take too long.
Tested and Certified
Eldfast has undergone rigorous testings to ensure that it meets the standards of regulating organisations. It has the following certifications and approvals: BSRIA 1443:2003, BSEN 1856-2, PREN 1857, Danak Approved, Hetas Approved, Boverkgs 1993-2, UT Gava 2, AF5 NITT 2.6, ISO 4746-1979 & NT Fire 020.
