Thermal Ceramics TR-19 Blocks? - 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!

  • Thermal Ceramics TR-19 Blocks?

    Does anyone know whether these type of block from Thermal Ceramics would be okay to use as the insulation under the brick floor? They seem to be pretty cheap. This is the info from the website: http://www.thermalceramics.com/upload/pdf/1014-100.pdf

    I would goes to directly to the source and give the company a call and ask them directly about how you want to use there product and if they would recommend it for your application. Would you post some pricing if you have that information available, and please do post what you find from the company if you take that route

      Rich is right, it is always best to call the manufacturer.

      Just by looking at the thermal numbers, the material looks OK. But, the insulating properties of Thermal Ceramics other product, Ceraboard is much better, half the thermal conductivity. See

      Also Insblok 19 has half the thermal conductivity as well, and I know that to be very economical (I used it) , but need to use a respirator to work with.

        Hi Tony,

        I used a different ThermalCeramics product for my insulation base. I called their 800 number to ask some questions and they connected me immediately with an engineer that works with the product. Their customer support is excellent.

        Definitely give them a call.
