  • Ceramic fibre board suppliers Ireland

    I am trying to source oven construction materials in Ireland. I am based in N. Ireland. Fire brick and cement appear to be easily sourced, however, ceramic insulation between the hearth and oven floor is difficult to source. I would appreciate suggestions if someone has found a supplier.

    Also is there any problem in laying two ceramic boards side by side if I can't get a single sheet of appropriate size.

    Any help appreciated.

    From all that I've read, there is a product called Foamglas (cellular glass insulation) that is available in the UK but not the US. It's by Corningware & shows up again and again in build forums based in the UK. Apparently it's a great product & not as expensive as CaSi board.

      No issues piecing together boards side by side. Avoid placing small pieces on the edge of your insulated base.

        You can also consider perlite or vermiculite/cement mix as an insulation for both under the floor and over the dome. Click image for larger version  Name:	Vcrete K values.JPG Views:	0 Size:	159.3 KB ID:	426782 It just takes more thickness to equate to high tech CaSi or ceramic blanket.

          Thanks for the replies. I'll check out the Foamglas safe in the knowledge that vermiculate / cement is always an option.

            If I go down the vermiculate / cement route, what thickness would I need to match the insulation of 100mm of ceramic fibre insulation board? Foamglas was being delivered from Belgium, 150 of product costing 185 for delivery!

              About twice the thickness of 5 to 1 p or vcrete vs CaSi board. That said, 6" p or vcrete is a good floor insulation number for most people's need.

                Thanks for that. Just waiting on a reply from a potential supplier in Belfast who may have Ceramic fibre board. If that fails I'll go down the p / v concrete route.

                  I had the same issue -you can buy ceramic blanket from Dineens in Co Laois - http://www.dineensales.com/Industria...aspx?P_CatID=7
                  They don't have boards so I ordered 50mm board from Pottery Pro UK and there was around 20 for delivery. They sell different sized boards on ebay and it was the cheapest option that I found for delivery to Dublin.
                  here's a sample of one of their listings: https://www.ebay.ie/itm/4-x-FIRE-RES...MAAOSww9VXh7Z6
