IIG SAFB comparable to OC 703?

in an attempt to keep from ordering OC703, I've been researching local suppliers (which has been largely fruitless and rather frustrating to say the least).

Anyway, a local contractor's supply place has got IIG SAFB mineral wool. From what I've found online, it seems to spec pretty good compared to OC 703......but it looked a little flimsy to me.

It also happened to have a really good price ($20 for 6 sheets, 2in, 2x4ft), fwiw......which actually makes me a little cautious.

Anyone got any experience with this stuff?

Likewise, anyone know of any carriers of OC703/705 or Roxul Rockwool in the Central Va area (Charlottesville, Richmond, etc).

Here for the gear

Curious if you went with the IIG SAFB or not. I am in the same situation.

5+ year old thread, but yes. Rock wool/ mineral wool can crumble with rougher handling. But it sonically it performs quite favorably to OC703.

IMHO go with IIG & save the $$$
