advantages with super iso boards - Forno Bravo Forum: The Wood-Fired Oven Community



New Forno Bravo Forum Feature

Forno Bravo Forum Community,

You will notice a new forum at the top of the main page called, "Ask Me Anything". This forum will be used for live one hour "Ask Me Anything" (AMA) sessions hosted by people who are knowledgeable in different areas pertaining to wood fired ovens. How it works:
- Each AMA will have a "sticky" thread where the community can post questions they would like answered during the live session. This will allow everyone to participate even if you can't be online for the live session. These questions will not be answered by the host until the live AMA; if you need an answer quickly, you should post it in the appropriate Forum area for the community to respond.
- Another thread will be posted for the live AMA. Registered users who are logged in during the live session can interact with the host by asking questions and receiving responses.
- The live thread will remain in the AMA forum to view after the session.

To kick off our AMA feature, we have invited author, chef and master bread maker and host of Pizza Quest, Peter Reinhart, to be our first host! Peter will be in the Forum on Monday, February 15th, from 7:00 - 8:00 pm EST. If you are unable to be online during the live session, you can post your questions in the sticky post. Peter will answer those questions during the live session on February 15th. You can view Peter's answers to your questions as well as what happened during the live session in the session thread.

We hope you enjoy this new feature! Please let us know if there is a topic that you'd like to have as an AMA and we'll look for a host!

    what are the advantages and disavantages with superiso as oposed with cement and insulation cement bonded together. I used about 6 in of cement then my super iso on top of that. Is there greater heat loss with super iso? Looks like most people usen the vermiculite cement mix.

    There is less heat loss with superisol, but vermiculite/cement is less expensive and more readily fabricated/accessible to the average builder.

      The SuperIsol under oven insulation hasn't been around that long, and it is becoming much more popular. With the installation guide re-writes, I think it will become even more popular.

      Maver hit the nail on the head. It's a little more expensive, but much easier to install, and your oven will hold heat better and perform better through less heat loss. Peter installs a lot of our ovens (in NorCal) and cooks in different ones all the time, and he thinks the floor heat stays more even across the floor with the SuperIsol.
