    Is the foil backed insulation wrapped around the bottom of my steam boiler made of any special materials to winstand the extreme temperatures?

    Remember water boilers at 212*at sea level , not what you call extreme temperatures . Nothing to worry about.....

    Is it gas or oiled fired steam boiler? Wet base ? Can you produce some pictures of it?
