...discussed include absorbers, barriers, mineral wool versus fiber glass, diffusing materials, isolation devices, and bass trapping. A layman's acoustical testing method is described....

...materials are generally either fibrous or cellular. Common fibrous material are fiberglass, mineral wool, and ceramic. These are applied as blanket or semirigid sheets which can be cut to shape. Generally, they are film faced or bagged to prevent the fibers from being dislodged and causing problems...

Unlike lip seals and squeeze packings, felt seals require relative little shaft pressure to function effectively. They are commonly used near ball and roller bearings as lubricant retainers. Advantages of felts seals include: Wool felt resists dilute mineral-acid solutions, unless continuously...
