Green Glue Noiseproofing 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 Noiseproofing Compound is non-hazardous, environmentally-responsible, and has practically no odor. Starting at less than £8.00 per square metre, it’s a cost-effective solution that gives you peace of mind—literally. It also adds value to your home or commercial space.

It takes just a few minutes to apply Green Glue Noiseproofing 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.


Whether you’re an experienced construction professional or a handy DIY kind of person, using Green Glue Noiseproofing 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 Noiseproofing Compound dissipates up to 90 percent of noise. Unlike other soundproofing products, Green Glue Noiseproofing Compound is ideal for dissipating low frequency noise common with home entertainment and theater systems.

Material Considerations

Green Glue Noiseproofing Compound is non-hazardous, environmentally-responsible, and has practically no odor. It’s a cost-effective solution that gives you peace of mind-literally and also adds value to your home or commercial space.

Green Glue Noiseproofing Compound has been proven to work in conjunction with the following materials:

  • Drywall– Click here for recommendations on drywall assemblies. You may use factory-damped drywall, but you can save yourself the extra expense by simply using extra layers of standard drywall with Green Glue Noiseproofing Compound.
  • Wood Products – Medium-density fiberboard (MDF), Oriented strand board (OSB) and plywood for applications like floors, soffits, seating risers in home theaters, stages, loudspeaker cabinets, and others.
  • Insulation – common building fiberglass (yes, the fluffy pink stuff) works just as well or even better than pricier insulation materials.
  • Soundboard – we recommend using as an underlayment for flooring rather than for walls and ceilings because soundboard lacks the mass required for effective damping.
  • Mass loaded vinyl – MLV and other limp mass products with Green Glue Noiseproofing Compound
  • Shredded Rubber Underlayments – the heavier and thicker, the better. Use compound on a solid surface and not on mesh or open-web underlayments.
  • Steel Stud Walls – Green Glue Noiseproofing Compound also performs outstandingly with steel stud walls. For recommendations and information about specific wall types

Tips for Decoupling 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 Noiseproofing 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” if possible)
  • 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 Noiseproofing Clips


Installation Instructions

Installing Green Glue compound is fast!

Prepare for application

Hang your first layer of drywall per local building codes, making sure the surface is free from any protrusions that would prevent the second layer from mounting flush.

Cut the end of the tube of Green Glue Noiseproofing Compound as shown. Screw on nozzle and cut tip, leaving an opening of approximately 3/8”. Insert tube into a standard 28 oz. caulk gun to prepare for application.

Apply Green Glue Noiseproofing Compound

Apply Green Glue Noiseproofing Compound in a random pattern across the entire back of the second sheet, leaving a 2”-3” border free of compound around the edge to allow for handling.

Apply one to three tubes of Noiseproofing Compound per 4’x8’ sheet of drywall, keeping in mind one tube of Noiseproofing Compound will give roughly 70% of the performance of two tubes.

Raise drywall into position

After applying Noiseproofing Compound to the drywall sheet, raise the board into position, press against the wall or ceiling, and fasten into place using appropriate screws. It must be hung and fastened in place within 15 minutes to prevent the compound from curing before it is installed.

We recommend staggering the panels of the second layer in order to cover the seams of the first layer, leaving a ¼” gap to apply Noiseproofing Sealant.

Attach drywall

Follow all appropriate local building codes regarding screw type and spacing.
