Started a pair of SLA Pro's and I 'm ready for the carpet felt. This stuff is hard to come by in my area (Southern California). Seams the foam is what is used around here. Can I use 1/2" carpet foam or I have some 1 1/2" convoluted foam?
Carpet foam isn't always open celled. Mattress foam is OK, but the advantage to felt carpet padding is it's so thin, much easier to work with in the small confines of the SLA. California or not I can't believe carpet stores don't have felt padding. I wouldn't want foam padding in my McMansion.
Texas uses the foam padding for carpet. I have never seen "felt" padding here.Bill Fitzmaurice wrote:Try a real carpet store. Just like with plywood big boxes don't carry the good stuff, only the cheap stuff.Tedward wrote:I can special order it from HD or Lowes but don't need yards of it.
I'm thinking giving Acry-Tech Acoust-X a try.
That stuff is used to dampen the ringing of thin sheet metal in car doors, plastic body panels in cars, etc. It works similar to holding a bell or cymbal with your hand as opposed to letting it ring out. It isn't meant to damp the actual sound wave propagating though the air. It is essentially a paint on version of the following:garychelette wrote: I'm thinking giving Acry-Tech Acoust-X a try.
