Cre-Away Creosote Removal
Cre-Away modifies third-degree creosote by converting it into a more brittle state that has a different expansion/contraction rate than the flue. During heating and cooling cycles, the creosote starts to lose its adhesive properties, making it easier to remove by chimney sweeping. First, a reactive agent neutralizes the creosote, making it less corrosive to metal components and less flammable. Second, a dehydrator absorbs the oils and moisture contained in some forms of creosote. Third, a combustion inhibitor helps reduce the chance of chimney fires. Finally, a magnesium catalyst helps break down third-degree creosote when the flue is heated by normal use. Cre-Away is effective on all types of creosote, but not recommended for catalytic stoves. For larger applications, use Cre-Away Professional Strength, available in a 25 pound pail. By using a small compressor, you can make a comprehensive application, making sure to get all the nooks and crannies. Use the Cre-Away, Professional Applicator for easy application!
