    Question Where do I find Rock wool Mineral wool insulation

    I am insulating a stud wall running parallel to a chimney. There is a 2" air gap between the studs and chimney. I would like to use a product that is effective at elevated temperatures. Rock wool or mineral wool have been suggested but I can't seem to find where to buy it. Does it come in batts like fiberglass insulation? I found 2'X4' rigid mineral wool panels..can that be used? Thanks in advance for your time.

    Here's four to start with, I've never used it but read on the NET that it has a min. melting point of 1800-2000 degrees. I also don't know what configuration it comes in, give these guys a call, I'm sure they'll be able to answer your questions. Good Luck !!!
