What is Green Glue:

Green Glue Noiseproofing Compound is used between two or more sheets of commonly specified building materials such as drywall, plywood, and OSB, to reduce the amount of sound transmission between two rooms. Typical applications are for wall, floor, and ceiling assemblies to reduce airborne and impact noise.

Advantages & Features of Green Glue:

  • Fast – Quickly applied with no measuring or troweling needed
  • Easy – Simple to dispense with no specific application pattern necessary
  • NeatSoap and water cleanup (before drying)
  • Versatile – For use in new construction, remodels, and retrofits
  • Quality - Up to 10 times the performance of competitive products 
  • Proven – Leading manufacturer of soundproofing technologies
  • Trusted – Used by builders, contractors, architects, and DIYers
  • Multi-Purpose – For use in walls, ceilings, and floors in a variety of applications
  • Tested – Independently tested by Underwriters Laboratories for fire safety and environmental impact
  • Safe - Low V.O.C. (see "Product Data" Tab)
  • Pleasant - Low odor
  • Effective – Validated by third-party laboratory testing
  • Sustainable - Can help achieve LEED Certification

Limitations of Green Glue:

  • Must be used between two rigid layers e.g. drywall, plywood, OSB, MDF.
  • Not a sealant or adhesive, therefore fasteners are necessary.
  • Intended for interior use only.
  • Not to be used in conjunction with a construction adhesive.

Green Glue installation is fast and dispenses with very little effort. No measuring or troweling is necessary.Use a standard (32oz) quart size caulk gun to apply. Green Glue will not flow off the board during installation. Application time is about 20-30 seconds per tube. It is not necessary to have complete coverage to obtain excellent results.

Important Application Tips:

Green Glue is Sticky: There is nothing harmful about Green Glue, but it is important to warn your installers that it can be tough to clean up, especially after it has dried. Take precautions such as drop cloths and latex gloves when using Green Glue. Take care to remove the Green Glue from unwanted surfaces before it dries. Products that clean well are Avon Skin So Soft Bath Oil©, as well as citrus based solvents and cleaners such as Goof-Off©.

Green Glue Smell: Green Glue has a very slight smell. In the same way that you can smell paint while you are painting a room, you will be able to smell Green Glue as you are applying it. Most installers aren’t bothered by the smell, but it is nevertheless important to keep the room well ventilated to prevent a build-up of smell. Cold temperatures or high humidity will slow drying. Smell will not linger on furniture, clothing or carpeting. Like paint, once dry, the smell will fade. Keep the spent tubes in a plastic bag and remove them regularly.

Recommended Green Glue Coverage: The ideal coverage should be uniform throughout the sheet using 2 tubes. Applying 1 tube of Green Glue per 4’ x 8’ sheet will deliver about 70% of the performance of 2 tubes. Three tubes is optimal per 4’ x 8’ sheet will improve low-frequency performance around the primary resonance. We do not recommend using more than 3 tubes per sheet. If you use too much Green Glue, performance will decline.

Green Glue Drying Time: After applying Green Glue, do not let dry. Apply Green Glue within 15 minutes. Drywall sheets must be screwed together while the material is still wet. Allow Green Glue 30 days of drying time for optimal sound isolation performance. Because it needs to dry, Green Glue must be allowed 7 to 10 days drying time before sound isolation will start to improve. High humidity, cold temperatures and multiple drywall layers could slow the drying time considerably.

STEP 1:

Hang the first layer of drywall - After hanging the first layer of drywall, it is recommended that you seal the seams between sheets. This can be done with either acoustical sealant or drywall mud. If using acoustical sealant, take care not to use a bead so large that it protrudes outside the plane of the drywall, preventing the second layer from sitting flat. If speed is an issue, you can omit this step and seal the perimeter after the last sheet of drywall is installed.

STEP 2:

How to Install Green Glue - Figure 1Cut the end of the tube as shown in top left image.  Screw on separate nozzle and cut end leaving an opening of 3/8” or more. A larger tip opening can be used to speed application without concern for perfomance.

STEP 3:

How to Install Green Glue - Figure 2How to Install Green Glue - Figure 3Apply Green Glue to the second sheet of drywall on a clean, flat surface. Placing the drywall on saw horses will help prevent the board from getting damaged or dirty from laying it on the floor.

Apply the glue in large beads in a random pattern across the entire board.

Leave a 2-3” border with no Green Glue around the edge of the board. This will allow for better handling of the board.

Use 2 tubes per 4’x8’ sheet. (1 tube gives about 70% of the benefit of 2 tubes).

STEP 4:

How to Install Green Glue - Figure 4How to Install Green Glue - Figure 5How to Install Green Glue - Figure 6After applying Green Glue to the back of the second layer, raise the board into position, press the board against the wall or ceiling, and fasten in place using appropriate screws.

The Green Glue will squeeze into a thin layer (about 0.5 mm). The second layer must be hung and screwed within 15 minutes to prevent Green Glue from drying before it is in place.

Typical screw spacing is 16” oc for walls and 12” oc for ceilings, but be sure to follow all appropriate local building codes regarding screw type and spacing.

Use our Green Glue Noiseproofing Sealant to seal cracks and seams paying special attention to the crack where the drywall meets the floor as this doesn’t get taped and mudded.

Comments about Green Glue Half Case - 6 Tubes:
The only caveat is that the tubes are oversized and you will need a special caulk gun for application. I didn't have a large caulk gun, so I used a one inch dowel to extruded the product and it worked pretty well. Take care when applying, Green Glue is a bit messy, because it is designed to stay sticky or gummy after drying, any product dropped on a drop cloth will immediately cling to shoes etc. Of course the end result is worth it - this is a very easy and cost effective method for sound proofing.
Bottom Line Yes, I would recommend this to a friend

Customers Questions and Answers

1) Steve: Hello, I would like to order 6 tubes of Green Glue, but I am concerned about winter shipping. Is GG sensitive to below freezing temperatures during shipment? I live in Maine, so should I order when the temps are predicted to be above 32 between you (New York?) and me? Thanks, Steve

Trademark Soundproofing Reply:

Hi, It should not freeze over in that short amount of time. Either way once you receive it you can leave it at room temperature for 3-4 hours and it will be good to go. Thanks.

2) Wilfredo: Do free shipping apply to Puerto Rico, USA territory?

Trademark Soundproofing Reply: Sorry it does not.
