Green Glue Compound is a unique damping product that is ideal for new construction and renovation projects. Green Glue Noiseproofing Compound is the most cost-effective soundproofing material on the market. The Green Glue’s distinctive properties dissipate sound wave vibrations 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 drywall, 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.
You can apply Green Glue to an average piece of drywall (or other rigid construction material) in minutes. Apply this compound 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 a cinch. Apply a layer of compound between two pieces of drywall or other construction material with standard quart-sized caulking gun. The Compound reaches its peak performance 30 days after application.
Independent lab tests prove Green Glue’s effectiveness in markedly increasing STC ratings in a wide variety of construction configurations. It is also 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, Noiseproofing Compound is NOT a permanent adhesive. Use this compound between two layers of building materials; typically drywall, OSB, MDF, cement board, or plywood, each at least 1/2 inch (12 mm) thick. One of the layers of which must allow moisture to pass through. If the two sheets layers are flat, rigid (for example, being applied between a layer of drywall and soundboard is not a good application), the Noiseproofing Compound will perform well.
Green Glue Noiseproofing Compound 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 this compound on exterior applications as it is effective only at room temperature range (approximately 65-85 F / 18-29 C). Exteriors are often subject to temperature fluctuations which are below and above this range.
Please note: if you subject Noiseproofing Compound to temperatures outside of this range, including during transport, it will return to regular performance once it has warmed/cooled to the 65-85 F (18-29 C). range. Green Glue Noiseproofing Compound is freeze and thaw stable.
