  • Dome Insulation

    Hello All,
    Just looking for advice on the dome insulation ratio. verm. to crete.
    Any help would be greatly appreciated.

    Re: Dome Insulation

    The dome vermicrete doesn't have to be as strong as the hearth vermicrete and will probably be subjected to greater heat, both arguments in favor of a higher ratio. Some people have gone as high as 12:1. 8:1 is more normal. I did some 8:1 and some 10:1. Worked fine.
