What is Green Glue?

Green Glue Noiseproofing Compound is a viscoelastic damping compound that converts sound energy into a minute amount of heat.  Very simply, when used between two layers of drywall, the compound works to isolate the noise traveling from one room to the other.

What Building Materials can I use Green Glue between?

Green Glue Noiseproofing Compound should be used between two rigid layers of building materials and is most often used between drywall, plywood, cement board, mass loaded vinyl, OSB, and MDF.  It can be used between other materials such as metal, cinderblock (as one of the layers), and heavy rubber underlayments but these situations are less than ideal.

How will Green Glue improve my noise situation?

Each assembly is different, but in most cases applying Green Glue Noiseproofing Compound properly will greatly improve the STC rating of the structure (STC is Sound Transmission Class).

What thickness of drywall is recommended for use with Green Glue?

As mass plays such an important role in soundproofing, we always recommend using the thickest layer of drywall available, which is typically 5/8”.  Keep in mind when adding extra layer(s) of drywall you need to plan on extending electrical outlets/switches along with wall/door trims.


What type of packaging does Green Glue Noiseproofing Compound come in?

We recommend using Tubes for smaller projects and Pails for larger jobs that would require more than 2-3 cases of tubes.  A pail is equivalent to 24 tubes and offers approx 30% cost savings.

How is Green Glue Noiseproofing Compound installed?

INSTALLING GREEN GLUE IS FAST

  • No measuring or troweling
  • Apply with a standard (32-oz.) quart-size caulk gun
  • Application time is about 20-30 seconds per tube
  • Complete coverage is not necessary to obtain excellent results
  • Green Glue dispenses with very little effort
  • Green Glue will not flow off the board during installation

PREP WORK

Hang the first layer of drywall according to local building code requirements.  After hanging the first layer of drywall, it is recommended that you seal the seams between sheets. This can be done with either acoustical sealant or drywall mud. If using acoustical sealant, take care not to use a bead so large that it protrudes beyond the face of the drywall, preventing the second layer from sitting flat. If speed is an issue, you can omit this step and seal the perimeter after the last sheet of drywall is installed.

STEP 1

Cut the end of the tube. Screw on separate nozzle and cut end leaving an opening of 3/8” or more.

STEP 2


Apply Green Glue to the back of the second sheet on a clean, flat surface. Placing the drywall on saw horses will help prevent the board from getting damaged or dirty from laying it on the floor. Apply the glue in large beads in a random pattern across the entire board. Leave a 2-3” border free of Green Glue around the edge of the board. This will allow for better handling of the board. Use 1-2 tubes per 4’x8’ sheet. One tube gives about 70% of the acoustical benefit of two tubes.

STEP 3


After applying Green Glue to the back of the second layer, raise the board into position, press the board against the wall or ceiling, and fasten in place using appropriate screws. The Green Glue will squeeze into a thin layer (about 0.5 mm). The second layer must be hung and screwed within 15 minutes to prevent Green Glue from skinning over before it is in place.

STEP 4


Attach drywall by using screws. Typical screw spacing is 16” o.c. (on center) for walls and 12” o.c. for ceilings, but be sure to follow all appropriate local building codes regarding screw type and spacing. Use our Green Glue Noiseproofing Sealant to seal cracks and seams. Pay special attention to the crack where the drywall meets the floor to ensure it doesn’t get taped or mudded.
