Default Re: Vermiculite 4" 5" 6" Does it matter?

I must admit, I've been confused about the density of insulating materials as described on FB. Intuitively, I would have assumed that less dense means better insulating, but 6# blankets are regarded as better than 4# and worse than 8#, so that just doesn't make any sense to me.

With regard to the boards you found, what kind of board are they? What are the specs?

I see your point. My theory would be that the manufacturing process for the less dense material is significantly more difficult and expensive, but that's just a theory. Maybe the denser stuff is in much higher demand, thus is produced in much greater bulk, thus driving its price down.
