Crafted in the USA from 100% recycled materials, the Defiant wood burning stove from Vermont Castings is one of the eco friendlier stoves in America, offering the highest EPA ratings. Defiant FlexBurn easily adapts to your lifestyle and works in catalytic or non-catalytic mode.
The Catalytic combustion process uses a honeycombed ceramic chamber coated with a metal catalyst to increase the rate of combustion and lower the burning temperature of the wood, whereas the Non Catalytic combustion process uses airflow inside the firebox to reburn smoke and gases instead of employing a catalyst.
