Staining from Leaking
Condensation
Oil heating
applications
When mixed with acidic
condensation, soot
buildup on the walls
of the chimney from
your oil furnace and
hot water tank, create
sulfuric acid. This will
deteriorate the clay flue
tiles.
The condensation in your chimney is seeping
through to the interior of your home, or your
chimney exterior, and creating costly damage
Disintegrating Chimney
Structure
Acidic moisture goes through freeze and thaw
periods, expansion and contraction, creating
cracks in your mortar and flue tiles
Wood and Pellet Stoves
Creosote formation is
the unavoidable byproduct from burning
wood. Most wood stoves
are manufactured to
vent into an area much
smaller than that of your
chimney flue. The
oversized flue causes a
reduced rate of smoke
exiting the flue, leaving
it to linger and deposit
creosote on your tiles.
You have inadequate clearance to the wood
framing of your home
Damaged Chimney Structure
Will allow carbon monoxide, smoke, and fire
to enter your home
Down-Drafting & Smoke
If you have an improperly lined flue, you can
expect an unsteady draft, leading to a down-ward
flow, bringing smoke into your home
How Safe is
Your Home?
Fireplaces
The danger with
creosote is the 450° F
ignition point - consider
the average wood stove
produces gases leaving
your fireplace at 300° F
to 900° F - causing
a chimney fire up to
2100° F. If your chimney
flue has no tiles, it is
likely that these gases
and creosote are leaking
directly into your home,
leading to a possible
fire or creating carbon
monoxide build-up.
Gas heating
appliances
Greater amounts
of condensation
produced by the high
efficiency of newer
heating appliances,
combined with many
installations in old oil
furnace flues, speeds
up deterioration. 2
cubic feet of water
vapor is produced with
each 1 cubic foot of gas
burned.
Tight Clearance
Water Heaters
Fireplace Inserts
Having your liner
insulated with either
Premier Mix -- a poured
insulation mixture,
or Premier Wrap -- a
ceramic wool blanket
helps create a steady
draft and allows for zero
clearance installation.

Yes, the smoothwall chimney liner is very durable. It is constructed using .005” thick stainless
steel that is formed in a double layer system. It’s thicker than any other lightwall flexible chimney
liner on the market. Smooth wall is constructed of the same high grade 316L all fuel stainless steel
as the traditional corrugated chimney liners.

SMOOTHWALL CHIMNEY LINER
Realizing the
only way to truly
control a product
is to manufacture.
National Chimney
has invested in
the industry
by becoming
the premier
manufacturer
of stainless
steel liners and
components to
match.
Downsizing:
Smoothwall is a great option for those
times where you just can’t fit the proper
size chimney liner in your chimney.
Due to the Smoothwall liner’s interior
properties, you achieve 20% greater
airflow, so often you can get the
same venting capability as standard
liner 1” larger in diameter. This makes
Smoothwall liner the best choice when
you need to downsize.

Why reline a chimney flue
−especially when it looks fine?
Don’t let damage & deterioration

The flue liner is often the
most neglected part of
your chimney. Traditional
masonry flue tiles cannot
handle the acidic moisture
created by your furnace,
boiler, or hot water tank.
This acid attacks and
breaks down flue tiles and
mortar in between them.
This damage can prevent
harmful exhaust gases from
leaving your chimney and
home.
CHIMNEY DEFECTS CAN RESULT
IN INJURY OR DEATH FROM
FIRE AND CARBON MONOXIDE
POISONING.
Having a fire start in your
chimney and rising to 2100°F
is extremely damaging and
dangerous to your family. It
doesn’t take a lot to start a house
fire once your chimney has
reached the threatening point of
catching fire. One spark through
a crack or an ember igniting
the creosote and climbing your
chimney seeking an escape route
is often enough.
Why wait to prevent something
so dangerous to your family?

clearances. Cleaning,
maintenance, and repairs
shall be done if necessary.”
