Introducing Green Glue

Filed under: — admin @ 9:28 pm

When you hear the term “Green Glue” what really comes to mind? Do you think about soundproofing a room or do you think about some odd colored children’s craft project? Despite its relatively strange name, Green Glue is one of the most popular soundproofing products on the market today.

In an easy to use tube, Green Glue makes soundproofing walls, ceilings, and even floors easier than ever before and is often used during music soundproofing projects. So what makes Green Glue special?

The Green Glue product falls into the category of damping compounds which can be used to add an extra layer of soundproofing to virtually any surface. There’s no need to scrape or sand existing materials away before application. You merely squirt this visoelastic, waterbone liquid to the surface you wish to treat – using a random, haphazard pattern for application – apply a second layer of drywall, and before you know it you will have reinforced the existing soundproofing in your project room.

Aside from its functionality, there is something else that most soundproofing professionals really seem to love about Green Glue. Green Glue is incredibly affordable (a case of 12 tubes costs around $165 – or $14 per tube) and is unbelievably easy to use. All you have to do is insert the tube into a standard caulk gun and get to work.

So why would you want to use Green Glue? Green Glue has been tested in several different situations and tests revealed that walls completed with a single stud and standard drywall received an STC rating of 56. Green Glue is now commonly used to soundproof all sorts of home and commercial projects, including home theaters, music studios, bedrooms, office buildings, conference rooms, and more.

The advantages of using Green Glue over other soundproofing materials are many. It’s great for fast projects because you don’t have to measure the area of your space before you begin. The added efficiency of using a caulk gun cuts down on the cleanup time usually associated with materials that need to be applied with a trowel. Green Glue, as mentioned before, can be used on both new and existing walls. There’s no need to purchase separate soundproofing accessories or products for different parts of the room you’re working on.

Green Glue is definitely a favorite amongst soundproofing professionals – both old and new. There’s nothing quite as convenient and affordable. Most people experience a 90% decrease in noise transfer between individual rooms after applying Green Glue. That’s a success rate rivaled by few others!
