Re: [woodheat] composition of wax and sawdust firelogs
- Hi,I would suggest that you look into offering logs made solely from compressed wood, minus the wax. The wax contributes mightily to smoke and soot issues, both inside the client's home, and in the chimney (the soot deposits are oily, and require extreme care in order to avoid making an awful mess. Several companies here in the Pacific Northwest make and sell pressed logs that contain only wood. The natural sap, etc.in the wood binds it all nicely, and this eliminates the aforementioned problems. The trick is having the proper equipment to compress the chips enough so that they stay together. I understand that the machine that does this is really strong ;-). Best of luck with your venture.Sweeps' Luck, since 1977,

I run a small company in England selling logs and have looked into
importing wax/sawdust logs from the USA, but because of the cost of
transporting them to Europe makes this prohibitive, i have looked
into making them, but it seems that the composition of these logs is
as closely guarded a secret as the ingredients coca cola.
Anyone out there that can help me please......
