Soundproofing Solution: Green Glue – Not Just Glue!

Green Glue May Be Green, But it's Not Glue!

A common misconception is that Green-Glue is an actual glue or construction grade adhesive.  This is not true. Despite the "Green Glue" brand name, the popular noiseproofing compound is not an adhesive and requires screws to hold the drywall layers securely in place.

Why is it named Green Glue, if it is not glue?  Well the color of the compound is in fact a light green, so the first part of the brand name, Green Glue, is accurate.  The second half of the name, Glue, refers to the tackiness of the compound.   Green Glue Noiseproofing Compound is a viscoelastic polymer which sets up as a tacky, gummy, sticky goo.  These goo like characteristics give the final part of the name, Green Glue.  The only difference between the sticky goo and actual glue is that the glue is an adhesive while the sticky goo has no permanent adhesive properties.
