If you can work with a material that is flexible (limp) and supported by a frame, then I recommend you look at the recycled cotton product from Bonded Logic. This stuff is very safe to work with, no gloves required, no itchy arms or face mask required. If it wasn't for the small amount of glue, you could probably use it as a pillow. There is one distibutor in the Bronx, and the website shows it for install in houses, but don't be fooled it comes in other sizes. I have boxes of it in 24" x 48" x 1-1/2" sheets
Is this the UltraTouch or Insulator product? How are you applying this product to your room treatments? Making a frame? Just stapling to the wall? Covering it with cloth? I am very interested in using this stuff. It seems as it is very cost effective and less nasty.

There are several cotton products out there. Bonded Logic makes a 1.5lb UltraTouch material that is available in 3.5 and 5.5" thicknesses and 16 and 24" widths. The 24x48x1.5" is a 2lb density I believe.

There are also custom products that replicate the densities of OC703 and 705. 1 and 2" is available in 3lb density and the 1" is also available in 6lb density. The 3 and 6lb material is more expensive than it's fiberglass equivalent.

Re: Source for Owens Corning 703 for DIY??

For people here in in the NYC metro area, I typically recommend J&S Supply Corp. (http://www.jandssupply.com/). They deliver within the tri-state area, though I imagine that might be something for larger quantities -- but they could probably send you a few boxes or whatever via FedEx or UPS ground for not too much money.

I've dealt with them myself a number of times in the past for some DIY projects, etc. They are very good guys to deal with, and their prices are usually quite reasonable. They are actually a wholesaler (though we don't get our stuff from them), but they will sell smaller quantities to individuals as well.

I know they stock OC 703 and 701, and they will order 705 for you if you want it. They also carry Johns-Manville and Certainteed products.

Definitely worth at least a call to see how reasonably they can get what you need delivered to your door. You can tell them I (or Ethan) sent you, and that you are building bass traps.

Here in the Sacramento area Mechanical Insulation Supply carries a similar rigid fiberglass panel (3#/cf, 2'x4', 2" thick) for $12.40/pc in boxes of 10.

Just got back from http://www.jandssupply.com and they are a superb bunch to deal with, saleman Tom and the boss there were very friendly. They seem to have a big inventory, i definitely saw a lot of mineral wool and roxul in the warehouse.

Not bad if you need no advice and just want insulation shipped. Other options are avaiable - PM me
