FAQ About Green Glue Noiseproofing Compound

Posted by


What is Green Glue Noiseproofing Compound?

Green Glue Noiseproofing Compound is a visco-elastic damping compound which transforms soundwaves into miniscule amounts of heat. Simply put, when applied between two layers of drywall or other rigid materials, the compound works to isolate the noise traveling from room to room. Unlike other soundproofing materials, Green Glue Noiseproofing Compound is ideal for dissipating low frequency noise common with home theaters, recording studios, and entertainment rooms.

Where can I purchase Green Glue Noiseproofing Compound?

You came to the right place: Buy Insulation Products is the lowest priced distributor of Green Glue Noiseproofing Compound in both 5 Gallon Pails and 28oz Tubes. Buy Insulation Products offers a "Price Beater Guarantee" which guarantees the lowest price out there. Buy Insulation Products also offers free shipping on both pails and cases of tubes.

Does Green Glue Noiseproofing Compound really lower sound transmission through a wall?

Yes Green Glue really does work. Here is a quick scenario which shows how effective Green Glue Noiseproofing Compound really is. Take a wall which has two layers of 5/8" drywall on both sides of the wall, the STC rating is 45. If you had put Green Glue Noiseproofing Compound between the two layers on both sides of the wall the STC rating goes up 11 points to STC 56!

2 layers of 5/8" drywall with 0 tubes of Green Glue on both sides of the wall - STC 45

2 layers of 5/8" drywall with 2 tubes of Green Glue on both sides of the wall - STC 56

Is Green Glue an adhesive?

A common misconception is that Green Glue is an actual adhesive or glue which is understandable because the product is named "Glue" and the compound is extremely sticky. However, no Green Glue is in no way a glue and layers of drywall with Green Glue applied to it need to be fastened with screws.

What is the Coverage Rate of Green Glue Noiseproofing Compound (Tubes/Pails)?

The most common application is 2 tubes or 2 dispensers of compound per 4ft x 8ft sheet of drywall/plywood.  In this application a case of 12 tubes would cover 192 square feet and a 5 gallon pail would cover 365 square feet.  If 3 tubes or 3 dispensers of compound are used per sheet then a case of 12 tubes would cover 128 square feet and a pail would cover 244 square feet.  If only 1 tube or dispenser of compound is used per sheet then a case would cover 384 sf and a pail would cover 730 sf.  Please see Green Glue Coverage Blog Post for more information on coverage.

Can I Use a Notched Trowel to Apply Green Glue Noiseproofing Compound?

Yes you can use a notched trowel to apply Green Glue Noiseproofing Compound from a 5 gallon bucket, however we find that measuring the amount of compound you use with a trowel is difficult.  We also find that using a trowel can be messy and actually more work than using the 5 Gallon Pail Dispenser Gun.  Please see our blog post on Using a Notched Trowel to Apply Green Glue Noiseproofing Compound.

What is the Shelf Life of Green Glue Noiseproofing Compound?

The published manufacturer's shelf life of Green Glue Noiseproofing Compound is 1 year however if properly stored the compound should last much longer than that.  The easiest way to determine if material has gone bad is to dispense a tube and check for its consistency.  If the compound flows out like ketchup then it is still good, however if you observe clumps the material has probably gone bad.  At Buy Insulation Products, we only ship out material made within a couple of months so all product shipped is fresh and well within the 1 year shelf life.

Is Green Glue Noiseproofing Compound Fire Rated?

Yes, Green Glue Noiseproofing Compound has been tested in a wide variety of fire rated UL Listed wall, ceiling, and floor assemblies.  Please contact us with the details of your fire rated wall and we can email you the UL Listed Fire Tested assembly for submittal on your project.
