Acoustical Batting

Acoustical Batting

CLIPSO® Acoustical Batting is a synthetic, polyester material that is both non-fibrous and lightweight. It provides a high noise absorption rate, a high resistance to moisture and is easy to install, as it contains no potentially-harmful fiberglass. When used with CLIPSO 495D Acoustic Fabric, you get a much higher rate of sound absorption because any of the sound that transmitted through the fabric is now met with the acoustic batting installed behind the fabric (as displayed below).
