STAINLESS STEEL:

 
 

THERE ARE TWO OPTIONS FOR INSULATING KINGAIR CHIMNEY STAINLESS STEEL LINERS


Option #1 - Insulating with Kingair -Wrap
Kingair-Wrap needs to be installed around the liner before the liner is installed into the chimney.


• Kingair-Wrap is one half inch (1/2”) thick , eight pound density, ceramic wool blanket with a three mil aluminum foil face. Aluminum tape, retractable wire mesh, and mesh clamps will be needed to complete the installation. Kingair-Wrap is available in four widths, 24" to fit liners 4" to 6" diameters, 30" to fit 7" to 8" diameters, 36" to fit 9" to 10" diameters, and 48" to fit 11" to 14" diameters.


• In a code-conforming chimney no Kingair-Wrap insulation is required. The required clearance between the liner and the interior wall of the masonry chimney is 1 inch. In a code-conforming chimney that must have the tiles removed a single one quarter inch Kingair -Wrap is required. The required clearance between the insulation and the interior of the masonry chimney is 0" inches.

Option #2 - Insulating with Kingair -Mix
• Kingair -Mix is poured into the chimney around the liner after the liner is installed. Kingair -Mix is premixed and water is just added to the mix at the time of installation. To calculate the amount of Kingair -Mix needed to insulate around a liner please call Kingair Chimney or go to our website.


• No minimum thickness of Kingair -Mix around a liner installed in a code-conforming chimney is required. The required clearance between the liner and the interior of the masonry chimney is 0" inches. In a non-code conforming chimney with zero clearance to combustibles, no flue liner, the minimum recommended thickness of Kingair -Mix is One (1) inch. The required clearance between the insulation and the interior wall of the masonry chimney is Zero (0) inches. The minimum clearance to combustible from the exterior of the chimney is Zero (0”) inches. Kingair -Mix is mixed with four to six gallons of water in a mortar pan or wheelbarrow. When mixed correctly the Kingair -Mix will have a sandy consistency with little or no water seepage when squeezed in your hand. Once mixed the Kingair -Mix is poured into the chimney around the liner. The liner should be vibrated during the pouring process to help the Kingair -Mix settle around the liner. Kingair -Mix should be filled into the cavity until the chimney is full to the top. Install the top hardware as described in previous section.

 

• A Kingair -Mix insulated Kingair -Flex liner can be used immediately after the installation is complete. Curing of the Kingair -Mix will occur over an approximately 28 day period. Approximately 70% of the curing process occurring in the first week. Drying time of the Kingair -Mix will vary on the thickness of the mix and the absorption of moisture into the masonry chimney. Drying time will be accelerated by using the heating appliance.
