Rigid fiberglass pipe options sweden

Hey guys.
I googled and YouTubed this for a couple of days.
And I can't seem to find rigid fiberglass pipes in Sweden.
I find ordinary fiberglass stuff.
But I'm planning on building some tubetraps and all the diy's is made from stuff ordered in America.

Anyone knows anything about this please share
Best regards mattias

Here for the gear
 

Paroc makes industrial stone wool pipe sections of suitable dimensions, but I'm afraid the material might be too dense to be good at absorbing bass frequencies, but I don't know what exactly you're going to build so here goes.

https://www.paroc.se/produkter/tekni...ro-section-100

The less dense 100kg/m^3 version (Pro Section 100) is reasonably available in Finland, and I'm assuming it shouldn't be too difficult to source in Sweden either. Maybe not optimal, but could be workable depending on your plans for the traps.

Paroc also makes HVAC pipe insulation sections up to 250mm inner diameter, I believe. Not sure what the nominal density is, saw 85kg/m^3 mentioned somewhere, so the acoustic properties could be closer to what you would want, but there's no way to know really.

EDIT: There's also Knauf, a German company, that makes suitable fiberglass pipe insulation sections, but I have no idea of their availability.

Thank you sir.
Most stores in Sweden is not available for private users unfortunely.
I found some pipe-insulation second hand in the right diameter for like 50kr(8 dollars give or take) each.
But I couldnt see the density and decided to go with another building plan.
Thanks again
