  • Insulation blanket

    Hi there I am trying to get info about the insulation blanket, I am building an oven with firebricks and will put a layer of high heat mortar outside the dome for insulation and then a layer of cement, i was reading about this blanket can you tell how it is installed and is it a good idea to put between after i put the layer of high heat mortar and before the cment? Or can i get your advise please

    Hi Polo,

    What type of insulation did you use under the hearth or floor? High heat mortar is not insulation, I hope you know that.

      Polo - the blanket goes on the outside of your dome (firebrick) for insulation

      No - the mortar is used for construction only (brick glue)

      You add the cement (stucco) over the blanket to cover the dome.

      Start a new thread called Polo's build - post ALL your questions there and we can walk you through this.

        Well on the floor its just the cement base, and then the Firebricks with High heat mortar, unfortunately I am getting all the knowledge until now that I am reading the forum.

          OK Les, I will start a new thread, just one more question, after the blanket its installed, will the cement stick to the blanket easily?

            This is wrong. You need insulation under the firebrick. Also, do not mortar the floor - let it "float". Is it to late to re-do the floor?

              I built my shape from rebar and chicken wire and filled the void with portland/vermiculite. I believe some have wrapped the blanket with just chicken wire and applied the stucco to that. Anyone that went that route, please jump in here.

                  I don't know if it's available in San Diego. Where are you located in Mexico? Also, you will be glad that you re-worked the floor. These things are amazing if insulated properly.

                    I am in TJ Mexico right accross the San Diego Border, but I go to SD twice a week, so no problem, I guess I will order from Forno Bravo the Insulation material, I already have a couple of guys taking out the bricks, and I also had extra Fire Bricks so no problem there, thanks so much for your advise, hopefully this oven will turn out to be great, Saturday I will take the time to post pictures in a new thread and let you know with the progress of the WFO.

                      If the insulation board i get from forno bravo is not enough to cover the floor can i use the insulation blanket to finish covering the floor?

                        No.
                        The blanket is too compressive.
