Is USG Thermalfiber equivalent to OC 703??????

Postby jugular » Thu Jul 22, 2004 4:09 pm

Trying to treat a "cube" from Hell. Distributer in my area has OC 703 2" unbacked at 1.70 a square foot. To do what I want, at 4" thick, it'll cost me too much. Distrib is recommending USG 4lb, 4" "Thermalfiber", says it's comparable to OC703...and it's HALF the price of the OC703.
Whaddya think????? If I go to the wharehouse and it looks the same, feels the same, has the same lb rating, and smells the same (that's the most important aspect..heh, heh.), should I go for it?
Thanks for any replies...

Try reading the reply you have on RO to your question.

We do not know the details of what the pricing and availability is in your area. Use a phone. You have all the data from the other post, including Bob's excelent site, Shop around. One company may be expensive, and another dirt cheap. If you find a product with acoustical data and it is not on Bob's list, please let him know about it. He will add it to his (excellent) list,

Good luck!
