What is the Coverage of Green Glue Noiseproofing Compound 5 Gallon Buckets and 28oz Tubes?

Green Glue Noiseproofing Compound is available in two different packaging options which slightly change the pricing and the application of the product.  The two types of packaging are the 5 Gallon Bucket and the 28 oz Tube Cartridges.  Both products have their pros and cons depending on the project with 5 Gallon Buckets being more popular on larger jobs and tube cartrodges being the preferred product for smaller soundproofing projects.

The Green Glue 5 Gallon Bucket contains 640 fluid ounces of the noiseproofing compound which is equivalent to 23 (22.86 to be exact) of the 28oz tubes.

COVERAGE CALCULATION:

At the standard 2 tubes per 4 x 8 sheet of drywall, a 5 gallon pail would provide soundproofing coverage of 11.42 sheets of drywall.  Each 4 x 8 sheet of drywall provides 32 square feet of coverage which would result in a single pail of Green Glue Noiseproofing Compound covering 365 square feet.
