How to clean woodburner Glass
Despite its superior thermal properties, your ROBAX® window should still be treated with the care given to any glass material. It still can be scratched or broken by mechanical abuse. When cleaning the window, use only non-caustic, non-abrasive cleaners.DO NOT ATTEMPT TO CLEAN HOT GLASS. Applying cleaner to hot glass may cause burns, emit hot noxious fumes, and the glass is more likely to stain.Creosote and soot from woodstoves and pellet stoves may be removed by a Stove Cleaner. Be careful, the solution can stain surrounding material, especially after the creosote has dissolved (put down a generous amount of newspaper). A razor blade may be used on the wet glass to help remove thick buildup. After using a stove cleaner always remove all residue by washing the glass with water or conventional window cleaner spray. Any remaining residue will stain the glass when it is heated.Natural gas and propane gas, and the gases emitted from burning coal, may sometimes carry sulfur and other chemicals that can coat the glass. If the exhaust gases are directed over the glass, these chemicals will try to bond to the inside of the window. ROBAX® Glass-Ceramic has superior thermal and chemical durability and thus, any damage to the glass by this coating is very gradual. In addition, because ROBAX® is unstressed (unlike tempered glass), even the most distracting coating will have minimal effect on safety or performance. Non-abrasive cleaning with the following products will help lengthen the life of the glass-ceramic and keep the fire view more enjoyable. Always remove all cleaner residue with water or conventional window cleaner spray.
