How to Control Noise with Green Glue

Everyone is tired from the noise that is spread from the crowded and full of traffic streets and neighbors that are not as quiet as a mouse. Noise isolation is one of the most perfect benefits of the building industry. The reduction of the sound frequency can be provided by the damping. 

Poor drywall damping provides a traveling of the sound vibration through the long distances on your house. When you set a wall between two rooms and the wall has no damping, the sound will go through the neighboring rooms thus providing a high sound frequency in your house or office.

Green Glue Noiseproofing products allow you to reduce the sound frequency between two rooms by dampening walls, ceiling and even floor effortlessly. Soundproofing lets you enjoy your life in quieter living conditions. Green Glue items are the easiest way to solve the problem of unwanted noise for the higher quality of your life.

To live in the area with the lessened noise is quite possible by measuring the sound traveling from one area to another that is called sound transmission class (STC).

STC is a significant rating for the building materials to maintain the maximum level of the quiet space you need. Green Glue Noiseproofing Compound is a product proved by the STC rating to be used for lessening sound on your living or working area.

*Note: The less the rating is (25) means the higher noise that goes through your living or working area.

Tips for Using Green Glue Products

  • Don’t use the Green Glue when setting only one level of the drywall. Set at least two levels of the drywall. Certainly, you can set the needed amount of drywall sheets for your purposes. The more drywall levels you apply, the more soundproofing you get.
  • Never mix permanent adhesive with the Green Glue. They are not ordinary in their use.
  • It is highly advised to use nails and screws. Green Glue is not a glue, it is a noiseproofing compound. That is why it is advised to use screws to tie up the drywall sheets.
  • Try to apply the Green glue for at least 0,5 mm thick. If you wish you may apply more, but 0,5 mm thickness level is quite enough to get the noiseproofing result.
  • It is not advised to use the Green Glue Noiseproofing Compound between one or two soft, plastic, glass or metals levels.
  • Green glue is most commonly used for applying levels between the drywall, OSB, MDF, cement or plywood board.
