To avoid repetition of text, I ask that you see this URL first:

No, really, please go there first! You went there and then hit 'back'? Thank you. Welcome back! As you can see there, fibres are but an accessory to caulking and paint based products, with the exception of the wool-only joint 'firestops'. Insulation typically serves as a low cost filler, or 'packing', for caulking and paints, which (despite much marketing type fanfare) would otherwise (unless they're intumescent) burn to a crisp in minutes, if installed on their own. Also see the MMMF page.
