Green Glue Noiseproofing Compound is a unique damping product that is ideal for new construction and renovation projects. It’s distinctive properties dissipate the vibrations caused by sound waves as they travel through ceilings, walls and floors.
The compound is a viscoelastic damping compound that converts sound energy into a minute amount of heat. Very simply, when used between two rigid layers of material, typically plasterboard, the compound works to isolate the noise traveling from one room to the other. Unlike other soundproofing products, Green Glue Noiseproofing Compound is ideal for dissipating low frequency noise common with home entertainment and theater systems.
Applied in mere minutes to an average piece of plasterboard (or other rigid construction material), Green Glue can be applied to an entire room in one day, or less. Whether you’re an experienced construction professional or a handy DIY kind of person, using Green Glue is easy. All you need is a jumbo sized caulking gun to apply a layer of compound between two pieces of plasterboard or other construction material. The compound reaches its peak performance 30 days after application.
Independent lab tests prove that Green Glue’s effectiveness in markedly increasing acoustic ratings in a wide variety of construction configurations. Noiseproofing Compound is environmentally-responsible and has low odor; it’s a cost-effective solution that allows you to live and work in peace. Add value and comfort to your home or commercial space by decreasing noise in your environments.
Despite the Green Glue name, it is NOT a permanent adhesive. The compound is used between two layers of building materials – typically plasterboard, OSB, MDF, cement board, or plywood, each at least 1/2 inch (12.5 mm) thick. One of the layers of which must allow moisture to pass through. So long as the two sheets layers are flat and rigid, Green Glue will perform well.
Green Glue should not be used between one or two soft layers, plastics, glass, or metals – i.e. between a carpet pad and plywood or to fill any cavities, such as inside a wall for insulating purposes.
We do not recommend using the Noiseproofing Compound on exterior applications as it is effective only at room temperature range (18-29°C). Exteriors are often subject to temperature fluctuations which are below and above this range. Please note: if the Noiseproofing Compound is subjected to temperatures outside of this range, including during transport, it will return to regular performance once it has warmed/cooled to the 18-29°C range. Green Glue Noiseproofing Compound is freeze and thaw stable.
