We used this caulking to seal all the joints of the mlv and around the boxes. Each tube goes a long way. Would recommend this caulk.
Used the sound sealant on my ceiling edges and it was very easy to use and dried as a softer flexible seal as advertised.
Been using this sound caulk for a few years now. The low price is great since its a high quality sound caulk.
