Insulating around gas hot water heater vent pipe


Remodelling the basement and the z-vent for the gas hot water heater goes out the floor joists right above the tub, want to insulate around it and wondering what is a good product to use? Is Roxul still the choice?

Roxul is the best of the batt insulations out there for close contact to high heat sources.

Thanks, I just know things change and what I considered good 10 years ago is not longer good.
