Green Glue Noise-proofing Compound is a unique damping product that is ideal for new construction and renovation projects. It is the most popular and cost-effective soundproofing material on the market.
The compound’s unique properties act as a damping material to dissipate the vibrations caused by sound waves as they travel through ceilings, walls and floors. Green Glue Noise-proofing Compound is non-hazardous, environmentally-responsible, and has practically no odour.
Applies In Just Minutes
It takes just a few minutes to apply Green Glue Noise proofing Compound to an average piece of drywall (or other rigid construction material). It’s easy to soundproof a room in one day, or less. For best results, cure time is seven days, and the Compound reaches its peak performance 30 days after application.
Application Is Simple
Whether you’re an experienced construction professional or a handy DIY kind of person, using Green Glue Noise proofing Compound is a cinch. All you need is a standard quart-sized calking gun to apply a layer of compound between two pieces of drywall or other construction material. It also cleans up easily with just soap and water.
Independent lab tests prove that using Green Glue Noise proofing Compound dissipates up to 90 percent of noise. Unlike other soundproofing products, Green Glue Noise proofing Compound is ideal for dissipating low frequency noise common with home entertainment and theatre systems.
Green Glue Noise-proofing Compound is non-hazardous, environmentally-responsible, and has practically no odour. Starting at less than $0.50 per square foot, it’s a cost-effective solution that gives you peace of mind-literally. It also adds value to your home or commercial space.
Green Glue Noise-proofing Compound has been proven to work in conjunction with drywall, wood products, insulation, soundboard, mass loaded vinyl, shredded rubber underlayment and steel stud walls.
Decoupling means mechanically separating two sides of a wall, allowing one side to vibrate independently from the other. It’s one of the most effective techniques at isolating sound in a room and preventing it from traveling to other parts of a house or building. The diagram below illustrates what decoupling looks like between two sheets of drywall
There is a drawback, however. While decoupling is effective at higher sound frequencies, it tends to be less effective at the low frequencies that are common with home entertainment systems. This is why using Green Glue Noiseproofing Compound as a complement to decoupling is an excellent strategy, because the compound is specially designed to prevent low frequency noise from traveling across partitions.

In addition to using Green Glue Noise proofing Compound, here are some other suggestions for an effective decoupling strategy:
- The heavier the better - use a thick, heavy drywall over thin drywall (at least 5/8” ideally)
- Use double drywall on at least one side of the wall
- Make the spacing between walls as deep as possible
- Use insulation standard fluffy fiberglass works just as well as anything else
- Use sound clips like Green Glue Noise proofing Clips
