You will want to now the density of that material.

Here's a qoute from Ethan Winers great site:

Rigid fiberglass is available in a number of densities, as are rigid rock wool and rigid mineral wool which are very similar. I'm most familiar with Owens-Corning rigid fiberglass, and that brand is commonly available in three densities. Their most popular product is 703, which has a density of 3 pounds per cubic foot (pcf) or 45 kilograms per cubic meter.

Most rock wool, Mineral Fiber or dense fiberglass will work.
Some is just easier to work with.
No matter what type the thicker the better for low frequencies.
