SPECIAL PRICE: $285/Pail Green Glue Noiseproofing Compound is a viscoelastic damping compound that is used between layers of drywall in walls, ceilings, and floors to drastically dampen vibrations.  By damping these vibrations, Green Glue is able to reduce the amount of sound transferring from one side of the structure to the other.  Green Glue Noiseproofing Compound works so well due to the fact that it always remains in a tacky state.  It will never dry out and become rigid like conventional adhesives.

*(48 States excludes Hawaii & Alaska) 

Pail = 5 Gallons Green Glue (Equivalent to 23 tubes or 368sf)
Recommended 2 tubes per sheet of drywall 4' x 8'

Install is Simple:
1.  Open lid of pail and insert Pail Dispensing Gun cone tip into pail and draw back on plunger filling up the entire tube.
2.  Apply 2 dispenser loads to the back of the second layer of drywall in a random pattern across the entire board (leave 3" border at the edges).
3.  Install drywall by sandwiching Green Glue between the two layers with the use of screws. (hang within 15 minutes)
4.  Seal all perimeters and cracks with sound sealant.  Mud, sand, and paint as normal.

    Works great

    Posted by James K. on 26th May 2020

    The product works great. I opt for a 5 gallon of the product instead of the tubes. I used a 30 oz measuring cup to scoop out the green glue and used a 3/16 notched trowel to spread the glue onto the drywall. I used two 28.oz scoops of the measuring cup for one sheet of 4x8 5/8 drywall. After the completed project Ive noticed a huge difference between me and my neighbors in the unit above. I highly recommend this for sound dampening and will be ordering this product again in the near future.

    Green Glue

    Posted by Unknown on 4th May 2020

    I am making liberal use of Green Glue in an attempt to reduce sound in a single room. It is only one element of a multi layer process so I can not attest to its effectiveness by itself. I suffer from hyperacusis so I can say that Green Glue helps dampen outside noise but not eliminate it. Buy Insulation prices this product competitively by offering free shipping and their service is very good.

    Green Glue Buckets

    Posted by Dillon P. on 7th Apr 2020

    Used 3 of these buckets to soundproof my mix room. I put 2 guns worth between 2 sheets of Fireblock X - 5/8 sheetrock. The sheetrock was attached directly to the MetroFlex RSIC clips and 25 gauge hat channel. Very happy with the end results and waiting on the glue to fully dry in a few weeks.

    Saves a lot of money

    Posted by Joel L. on 9th Oct 2019

    I went with the pails instead of the individual tubes. Doing the math that saved some money. The only issue that I think is important to know is that there is some waste when using the caulking gun, so you want to try and do all of your gluing in one day if possible so you don't have to clean your gun all the time (and waste this expensive glue). It was really easy to apply.

    Green Glue on Quiet Rock Drywall

    Posted by Tim on 2nd Oct 2019

    Condo owner complains about noise from next door neighbor. Applied Green Glue on the ENTIRE back side of 5/8" Quiet Rock Drywall. Then screwed it to the existing 5/8" Fire Code Drywall. The results, don't have to listen to noise from neighbor any more. Want bigger STC numbers? Combine Green Glue and Quiet Rock Drywall.

    Suprisingly good results

    Posted by Samar K. on 15th Nov 2017

    Used 3 Green Glue pails for my movie-room in my recently finished basement. The walls/ceiling were already installed but we could hear the sound easily in the kitchen above. I read online about Green glue and decided to give it a shot. The rep I spoke to on the phone was very helpful and instructed me on how to do the install and treat all of my in-ceiling speakers. He explained that these speakers were the main culprit for the sound leaks. I cut open the drywall around the speakers and installed drywall and green glue on the above subfloor and boxed them in.

    I found the dispenser gun takes a bit to get used to and drips a little but after a few sheets we had mastered using it. We noticed a big difference immediately and after about a month (waiting period) the results were even better. I can raise the volume within reason and not disturb the upstairs. Very happy with Green glue and the advice I received on the phone.

    *Samar, we are happy to hear that the Green Glue worked out well for your project. Ceiling speakers need to be treated to avoid disturbing the floor above! ~ BIP

    Great product, great prices

    Posted by Zach T. on 24th Jul 2017

    I've used the Greenglue tubes from Buy Insulation Products on a few projects, but this newest one was going to be over 8 boxes. I called for advice and the man (dont remember his name) convinced me to buy 4 buckets and a gun instead. He said it would save me money and would be easier but I was nervous about using buckets since we had never used them, but I am so happy I did. The gun takes some getting used to but it sucked up the greenglue nicely and was quicker to apply. I wanted to just thank you for recommending the buckets. For anyone out there these guys have the best products and best prices. ZT

    *Zack, I am glad that your soundproofing project worked out well. ~ BIP
