I used the "air block" as insulation under the hearth of my oven - essentially the same as the "foamed concrete", I think. No problems so far; seems to hold heat and the blocks are set on edge, giving me 7 inches of insulation, with the hearth floating on top. I posted photos on this site.

Blocks of foam concrete are being used in general construction here; taking the place of wall insulation and a small, soft red brick. I assume they are not quite as strong but they are certainly lightweight, cheap and make buildings cooler. I have no idea how they are manufactured here in Thailand - I just hope they ones I used last a long time. They can be replaced(in my oven) but it would be a pain. I fired my oven the first time, about a year ago and used it 2 times a week on average.

I'm in Folsom, CA and looking for the "ceramic fiber insulation board" used on the oven stand beneath the oven floor. Any local sources?
