    Thanks david s looks like thermal 12 gold can perform pretty well...I believe UtahBeehiver used this board for his insulation also with Foamglas underneath. I plan to mimick that as well. I seen people use different materials for the insulation boards but what is the preferred choice?

    For casting your own vermicrete slab a 5:1 is considered about the right strength, so checking its density and compressive strength against your Kaowool boards it looks like the Kaowool M is too soft. Check also the density and strength of the Thermal Gold.

    started a topic Kaowool HP

    Kaowool HP

    Has anyone ever used Kaowool HP for their insulation I heard about Kaowool M which I don't think is strong enough but what about Kaowool HP it's a stronger version of the M. Here is a spec sheet of the products they have and tell me what you think. http://www.lynnmfg.com/wp-content/up...TC-514-700.pdf I'm trying to get my supplies in order so I can start the dome this spring and this was one of my concerns. Which board to use. Ceramic Fiber board or Calcium Silicate. Any input would be appreciated.
Working...
