QUIET BATT® Acoustic Insulation

Hello there,

I am planning on building 10-12 Bass Traps and I'm looking for some advice on a particular insulation material. While I've already looked at the obvious choices (OC 703, Rockwool, etc), I also came accross a reasonably-priced product called QuietBatt, which is made out of 80% recycled cotton fibers. These are the technical specs provided by the vendor:

I realize that the specs are very limited, but based on the absorption figures, could be an acceptable substitute? Does anybody have any experience with this product?

Thanks in advance!

Based on the test data on the material and test data on other similar product, it is not suitable for bass traps.

Thanks, Andre! I was afraid that would be the case. I came across this product by searching for acoustical cotton.

I'm not sure I understand what about it's measurement makes it unsuitable for bass traps. Could you explain?
