rockwool IS safe PROVIDED that it is wrapped in acoustic material such that surface fibre shedding can't take place easily... or at all..... i usually also recommend a light treatment of a dilute PVA solution to fix the outer fibres in place ....

what is this PVA solution I don't I have ever come across it please can you help what is used for and to which store I can buy this stuff ?

Cheers

It's not widely known that PVA serves the role of resin in emulsion paints. In other words emulsion paint *is* a dilute PVA solution. So just slap on some emulsion paint!

Polyvinyl acrylate glue is also sold as Bondex for, among other things, prepping masonry tro receive plaster and (in my case) providing a gripping surface for rendering 150 year old granite blocks.
Smashing, versatile stuff!
I also use it for woodworking, which I believe was the original purpose for which it was marketed!

This is great. Not enough people understand how easy and inexpensive it is to put together a sound treatment setup that is much more than adequate

Good advice here for when starting out as whatever you can do to mitigate the inherent problems of any room is important. I guess it all depends to what level you expect to take the recordings but to get started definitely worth following most of these points.

I think you mean the ACETATE Ive'?

There is an PV acrylate glue but it seems to belong to the superglue family.

Zack...

I saw you also posted in another sticky on the forums promoting your web site.

Here's a handy hint....

This thread is EIGHT years old. Hardly a 'new' thread by any definition. So, if I may quote you..
