Leca Chimney Fill
What are the benefits of insulating with Leca® Chimney and Flue Backfill?
Leca® Chimney & Flue Backfill provides a lightweight, stable and insulating surround to the flue improving draw and retaining heat where it is most needed. It has a unique cellular inner structure which provides excellent insulating qualities.
Leca® LWA is non-hazardous, inert and is resilient to attack from chemicals, hydrocarbons, and extreme high & low temperatures. It is not affected by water and unlike other backfill material it will not clog when wet.
Simply pour the Leca® LWA into the void between the chimney and flue liner either straight from the bag or using a bucket or filler for smaller apertures.
- Hotter gases and improved chimney draw
- Increased flue efficiency
- Reduction of heat loss
- Better fuel economy
- Prevents condensation
- Significant reduction of tar deposits
