Flueclear chemically alters the products of combustion. It inhibits the formation of ssot and tar compounds that vapourise during combustion, then condense on cool heat transfer surfaces as hard scale deposits. Tars and soot are prevented from forming and are not emitted into the flue passes, chimney or atmosphere.

With Flueclear, just an easily brushed away light dust will deposit on the flues. This will be much lighter in colour than that dust from an untreated fire, as Flueclear reduces by up to 70% - its carbon content.

Flueclear works in the combustion zone. Unlike some products, it is too heavy to be entrained in the flue gases and remains in the combustion zone until it is removed with the ash.


Flueclear is non-toxic, not volatile, non-flammable and completely safe to use. It requires no special handling or storage.

Flue side deposits reduce the heat transfer rate, which results in increased fuel consumption.
