Mineral Wool is hydrophobic. From the dictionary: tending to repel or fail to mix with water. If fiberglass insulation becomes wet, you end up with a wet lump of glass lint, with no insulation value to boot. Mineral Wool on the other hand will not become wet. Water in fact beads up and rolls off the surface of Mineral Wool. This promotes water draining and drying if the wall cavity becomes wet, rather than holding water like a sponge. Which would you rather have in your wall?

Would make a PERFECT insulation material for just behind the cab and over the engine.

Mmm, spoon-fed yogurt. (this is the same thread as the recent dairy metaphor, isn't it?)

I hadn't heard of/noticed the Roxul products before. The Lowe's in my city doesn't carry it but several others nearby do. Seeing how neatly it cuts, it'll be just the thing for fitting around my engine firewall. It may be good stuff for lining the future generator compartment too. Thanks!

It isn't that common, it costs more than the pink stuff, and it reminds people too much of asbestos (WHICH IT ISNT). It is made from limestone that has been put into a machine that, well I would call Satans cotton candy machine. It melts the limestone and turn it into threads which get glued together. That glue is what will probably determine how much water gets absorbed. Roxul is just a brand name, like kleenex, ask for it and you will probably get some rock wool product it just might not be Roxul. And for all of you who want to do a wood stove rock wool steel studs and concrete board makes a unburnable platform and surround for a stove.

Hey nat ster, I didn't see you mention two-part foam name brands. Do you have any to recommend?

Thanks in advance!
