    That is a unreal (great) price for that amount of FoamGlas. It is a great base layer on the hearth since it will not absorb water but it does have a max service temp of 900F, will you see 900F on the bottom side of your floor brick, I don't know. I used FoamGlas on the bottom layer topped with CaSi board on top.

      I also used FoamGlas under my floor. I covered it with 3" of perlcrete before setting my hearth bricks to address the 900°F max. temperature rating of the FoamGlas.

        very cheap...almost to good to be true....i hope its not a cheap imitation of the real product. its also not super heavy but has some weight to it. $22 is pretty cheap shipping too. I picked up my foamglas for $2.98 sq ft. from distribution International Just do your research and make sure.

                    I have talked to Dave Neufeld from TrueBrickOven.com HE builds ovens for a living you should check out his web site he uses just foamglas under floor brick and no ceramic board So with that information I am only going to useit for under the floor that way I dont have to worry about water in ceramic board

                      I just received my order of foamglas friday arrived in good condition it was one big box. I still want everyone opinon on just using only the foamglas for under floor insulation I have enough for 4.5 inches . I already posted why I think I can do it I would value everyone's opinion.Ifigured I would get some kind of debate on it so Iwill try again need to make final decision,if I have to buy the ceramic board.Thanks for all your input.

                        Have you any info on how strong the stuff is? It needs to be about 100 psi for adequate strength. At 900 F top service temp i’d be topping it with 1” of 5:1 vermicrete, especially if it has been knocked around in transit. Because foamglas doesn’t absorb water it is the ideal material for any oven that’s out in the weather. That quality will also make adding vermicrete on top much easier.

                            There seem to be five different products in the range. Not sure what you have, but check their data sheet here.

                              I briefly looked at all the specs and one thing that popped out was the 900 F max service temp dropped to mid 700 F when loaded. This could be a concern since these ovens are so heavy. You would certainly not want the FoamGlas to fail and the oven shift. As David suggest, a small layer of Vcrete would take care of this and act as a temperature buffer.
