Default Wet Insulating Blanket

I am in the late stages of a Casa 2G100 build. My tarp leaked and my insulating blanket got wet. I currently have 3 layers covered in chicken wire awaiting stucco. Hard to tell exactly how wet it got. It wasn't thoroughly soaked, but took on a bunch of water.

Do I have to replace it? How can I tell if it's OK?

Thanks

If its ceramic blanket itll be fine, maybe you could fire up the oven to dry it?
Fire it on low, not high.

I'd try to let it dry out before you cover it as best as possible.

DC,

Brickie is correct, just fire the oven on low for a few hours to get the heat through the refractory - just think of this being an extended low temperature cure. The just be sure not to have anything on top of the insulation so that the steam has a free flow You will want to do this on a clear day with low humidity (a relative term on the East Coast) to maximize your efforts.

Best o luck
