FB Board Specification Sheet

fb boardFB Board is ideal for use as an insulator underneath pizza ovens and brick ovens. It is a high strength, high efficiency Alumina Silicate board originally designed for industrial applications, such as aluminum melting and holding furnaces. One 2" thick layer of FB Board panel reduces the 800ºF cooking floor of a pizza oven to roughly 170ºF at equilibrium, making it roughly twice as efficient as pure Vermiculite board, and even more efficient than castable Vermiculite and Portland cement mixes. FB Board is easy to install and to work with, lightweight and easy to ship and handle, easy to cut and glue, and high compression strength to support pizza ovens and brick ovens.
