    Etec, I used to do some inso with navy board but it was already made, we used to do the joins with light glass tape & a latex like thick paint, the panels where held on with spot welded studs & buttons, thats all I remember except that no one liked being on the inso crew!. All the best from Jeff.

    thank for the info.. well, I'm now applying pva glue on top of the glass wool to make it stiffer before spraying non combustible glue for sticking the mineral wool.

    And it turn out to be good, and today will try to replace the pva with starch and see the effect. anyway, make up some phone calls and found out that they treated the glass wool with pvb at the factory before sticking it to the wool.
