I am in no way arguing what is right or wrong, but just offering some food for thought.Polyester is the only sound absorber that can be used in hospitals and public venues in Australia for sound control. Its a no brainer to use, no fibers is so good to work with and be around and the stuff works as good as or better than fiberglass. My studio was the fourth I built and I said to myself no more fiberglass when building it, I even used it inside the walls and ceiling.
Point taken, but polyester is just plastic. Whether its recycled or new raw stuff, it is just plastic.

How is your sound studio stuff made?The stuff I talking about is not recycled plastic bottles it is professional sound treatment.

Now that is different than the stuff I purchased for house insulation.The acoustasorb 3 is so dense you can’t roll it up, if you stand it up against the wall it will stay there. Yes I have used it throughout my studio builds as sound proofing, building bass traps and making gobos.
The fluffy stuff you have is normal home thermal insulation. Acoustasorb products is made for acoustic treatment.
