Rigid fiberglass panels?


There used to be rigid fiberglass panels for insulation, but I haven't found them anywhere. Do they still exist. What sort of shop might have them?

There are various foam panels available; which kind is most heat resistant?

What is it your really trying to insulate?
Foam off gases toxic fumes when heated or burned.

None of the foam is really designed for open heat but what are you trying to insulate?

I remember dealing with those, they were typically used on commercial roofs. I don't think that that type of insulation board is available anymore. I can tell you it is the nastiest stuff one can work with, especially if it's hot out.

You can find them an insulation houses, they sometimes use them for boiler rooms. Another use is acoustic panels but they're expensive when sold for that purpose. Very hard to come by, but we used to line a home theater with them and then cover them with cloth; but rockwool insulation has some of the same capabilities acoustically but isn't itchy etc... Of course it's not typically compressed like compressed fiberglass board.

Look for Owens Corning 703 fiberglass boards. you can find them online but shipping is expensive.
