What is Green Glue?

You will find all GG products on the World Wide Web. Green Glue Noiseproofing Compound creates an air tight seal between two layers of drywall. Additionally, the compound is specially formulated to reduce and absorb sound vibration, Not only does Viscoelastic Compound help fill in all screw holes and small gaps, it also presses into the seams on the preliminary layer of drywall. Some acoustical engineers believe using soundproofing adhesive to separate 2 layers of drywall, creates an “air-gap”, increasing the STC value significantly.

How does Green Glue reduce sound transmission?

Green Glue is a viscoelastic damping compound used between two stiff or rigid constraining layers such as drywall or plywood. The compound converts vibration to heat, as a result, reducing the resonance of the two stiff layers, much like placing a hand on a drum head to stop it from resonating.

Why use green glue for soundproofing?

Green Glue Noiseproofing Compound is our favorite sound absorbing adhesive. Green Glue dries in like manner to a sticky jello/silicone. We use soundproofing adhesive for every wall or ceiling soundproofing treatment. In the case of soundproofing, the combination of viscoelastic compound with Quietrock, Resilient Clips, Resilient Isolation Channel, equally are a great start to reducing sound transmission. Most of these products have similar qualities, although when it comes to Green Glue, it really is the glue that holds everything together.

How to apply Green Glue Noiseproofing Compound

  1. Cut the end of the tube and attach the nozzle also

    First, screw the nozzle on the green glue tube. Next, cut the nozzle 1/2″ in a 45 degree angle. Finally, Pro tip: Unscrew and reuse the same nozzle for multiple tubes. For the 5 gallon bucket, measure 56 oz with a measuring cup. Green Glue Noise Proofing Compound tubes, caulk gun, 5 gallon green bucket

  2. Put on a respirator face mask

    Green Glue has a sulfur-like odor, although we recommend using a respirator, you can at the same time use a fan, especially in rooms with little ventilation.

  3. Apply Green Glue evenly onto the surface

    Next, apply 2 tubes per 8 x 4 drywall sheet or plywood, leaving 2″ dry around the perimeter of the surface. Unless you’re using the green glue 5 gallon bucket, in this case, measure 56 oz. and move to next step. Viscoelastic Compound, Green Glue Soundproofing Adhesive application

  4. Use a plastic drywall taping knife to spread the compound evenly

    Next, spread the soundproofing adhesive evenly over the surface. The appearance should look like a thin creamy green paste over the top of the entire surface, leaving 1″ dry around the perimeter of the board.

  5. Install the drywall to a hard surface

    Finally, press the board against the first layer of drywall or plywood. Viscoelastic compound will fill in small gaps and screw holes which also makes the board airtight when properly installed.
