Inferior Product
Got a few bats of this product as Rock Wool wasn't available. What a mistake. This stuff has a noxious rotten egg odor, the insulation media feels sub-par, and to top it off the black glass is not well mixed in so you will encounter big chunks that tear out and try to ruin your knife as you cut it. I have absolutely no idea why this product has so many five star ratings. I'm hoping the sound deadening is as good as some of the reviews say or it's a waste. The odor is concerning.

Response from OwensCorningApr 25, 2022
Dear NotHappy --

I am so sorry to hear about your experience. During the manufacturing process the insulation is cured in an oven. In some cases, the binder is not completely cured and may cause a burnt sugar odor. This odor should dissipate over time. That time can vary depending on the weather conditions. In many cases once the interior finish is installed you will no longer smell the insulation.

Thank you!
Owens Corning
    5 stars despite awful odor
    Mineral wool has terrific advantages over other types of insulation. You can read about them elsewhere so I won’t go into it. This is easy to cut and fairly neat to install. The one major fault I find, and you may not be willing to live with it, is the awful odor. Kind of a sweaty urine if I had to describe it, and six months later it still is apparent.

      This was very easy to cut using an insulation knife and installed between studs great. In my case, some of the studs spacing was not 16" centers so I had to cut the insulation into multiple pieces to get it to fit. I found you could use the studs as a guide when cutting. For example, I pushed the insulation against the left stud of a pocket and used the inner edge of the right stud as my line to cut along the insulation. This seemed to work pretty well and went quickly. This was for a bathroom and, except for one exterior wall, mainly for sound reduction and it has definitely worked on that front. I can barely hear the shower running when not in the bathroom. I also noticed that the shower wall tiles don't get nearly as cold as they used to prior to insulating the walls, so an added benefit there. One minor note is that the insulation has a distinct smell upon opening it. I didn't find it offensive, but I could certainly seeing it bothering someone else. The smell dissipates so it's not like it's a permanent concern. Overall, very happy with this purchase and would definitely use it again.

        I was insulating a garage with 2x4 walls and a 2x8 ceiling. I doubled up the batts in the ceiling to achieve R30! This would not have been possible with the other insulation design for a 2x8 cavity. What I like best about working with this product is that it stays in place. Great friction fit. The only con is some of the batts were a bit fragile. There was definitely a difference in the resiliency and integrity of a few batts, but most were fine. A couple of batts had to be handled really carefully as they were sort of brittle and crumbling. But like I said most were fine. I love the fact the batts a designed to fit 2 vertically in a 92-5/8" stud cavity without any cutting. Installing the insulation in the ways went really easy. I used an electric carving knife for the cuts and this worked wonderfully. I will never use fiberglass pink insulation again after using this type of insulation. Easier to install, better R value and better fit.

        I am a 67 year old female "rustic" DIYer. Was finally insulating an exterior concrete block wall in my laundry room. Put up a stud wall, air barrier, batt insulation (THIS PRODUCT), moisture barrier and drywall. This insulation made an immediate and HUGE temperature difference in my whole basement. Recommend without reservation. This product was easy to handle and apply. Fit into a standard stud wall as stated. However, when needed to resize, was easy to cut and fit. NON-ITCHING!!!!! Looked at other products, bought some. Found this product and returned the other stuff. Best decision. (Pictures are in reverse order. Oops.)

        So far I’ve used this product to insulate my garage. The noise from the garage door opening has been noticeably dampened. I used roxul for my basement. There is very little difference between the products in my own opinion. Take care when pushing Owens into place to avoid fraying (roxul also did this). Others have used plywood for this, I managed with my hands just fine. I’m currently working on my homes exterior walls where standard fiberglass was installed, so I will update on its effect on my homes comfort. At half the price I wish I would have used in my basement. This is a quality product with great sound dampening and easy installation. I will continue to use.
