Silenseal Acoustical Sealant

Filed under: — admin @ 9:21 pm

If you’re planning a huge soundproofing project than there is really nothing better than Green Glue damping compound. Regardless of whether you’re completing a large or small project, however, you’re going to need to have some Silenseal Acoustical Sealant on your side as well. Here’s why.

First of all, if you have a very small soundproofing project you may find that there is a simple solution in the use of acoustical caulk. You can simply seal up small holes in the seams around the windows or in the wall and your problems are solved.

If you’re using Green Glue, which involves adding a new layer of drywall, you’re going to need to seal the seams between the layers of drywall in order to successfully complete your project. Either way, Silenseal Acoustical Sealant is the way to go.

What is Silenseal?

Silenseal is by far one of the best acoustical caulks on the market today. Using Silenseal to finish off your soundproofing project will ensure you end up with the STC (Sound Transmission Class) value you really aim to achieve. Silenseal has been tested by soundproofing agents around the country, having been used in a number of architectural projects.

Silenseal is incredibly easy to use. The acoustical caulk comes in a tube that fits into any standard sized caulking gun. It easily adheres to a number of different materials, including metal, wood, gypsum board, and concrete. It glides onto the surface you are working with very easily and any excess can easily be cleaned up with a combination of soap and water.

Is Silenseal Cost Effective?

Silenseal Acoustical Sealant is certainly one of the most cost effective acoustical caulks available. A case of 4 tubes usually runs around $35 and a case of 12 tubes can run anywhere from $78-$90 depending on where you make your purchase.

What you get out of each tube varies depending on the needs of your project. You can apply the caulk in a 1/4 inch, 3/8 inch, or 1/2 inch bead, giving you anywhere from 22 to 89 linear feet of sealant.

Silenseal has a number of incredible benefits. It’s nonflammable, is VOC compliant, won’t stain or run on the surface you apply it to, and has both adhesive and cohesive strength qualities.

If you need an acoustical caulk, Silenseal should be your #1 choice. Aside from Green Glue products, there’s simply nothing else worth using when it comes to soundproofing effectiveness!
