difference between fiberglass insulation for house and ovens
 
Just curious...

What is the difference between fiberglass insulation used in ovens (sides, doors) and those used in houses (walls, attics)?

I know some people who build their own ovens use ordinary house fiberglass insulation (without paper) while some buy fiberglass insulation specifically labeled for ovens. Do their (the fiberglass) properties differ - e.g., melting point, purity? I bought some oven door fiberglass insulation before. They're of course thinner (3/4" thick) than house fiberglass insulation and they're just white. I don't know if they're denser than regular house fiberglass insulation as it's been awhile since I've seen house insulation.

Shouldn't approach melting temperatures in most cases.

The ones I have torn apart has a rock wool type insulation in them.

Could even be ceramic fiber insulation which is also white.
