Green Glue Noiseproofing Compound is fast, easy to use, highly cost effective, and it works. Just one layer of Green Glue Noiseproofing Compound between two layers of drywall or other similar building material dissipates up to 90 percent of noise.View Product
About Green Glue
Green Glue is a water-based, viscoelelastic damping compound. Green glue’s performance is higher than any product of its type. Green Glue has a damping coefficient of 0.5 versus 0.1 for the competitive products. It dampens air and structure borne sound and can be used in virtually any drywall wall or ceiling assembly. Green Glue can also be used in plywood and OSB assemblies.
In a CLD (constrained layer damping) system, a damping material is sandwiched between two other materials. (I.E - Green Glue sandwiched between two layers of drywall). Damping occurs when the viscoelastic center of the "sandwich" is sheared between the rigid layers. When bent, shear forces stretch the damping material and under these conditions, the unique polymeric construction of Green Glue very efficiently converts this mechanical energy to heat. The vibration energy is not isolated, it's dissipated and gone.
Green Glue is extremely easy to use - No special trades or training required - Green Glue is Ideal for DIY applications.
