Better Thermal Insulator for Glass - Neoprene or Silicone?

  1. Mar 5, 2015 #1
    I am looking to improve the thermal insulation on one of my favorite glass mugs.

    I am choosing between a silicone glove or a neoprene wrap.

    What is the difference between a silicone baking mat and silicone rubber?

    Does silicone or neoprene have better thermal insulation?
