Instructional video on how to apply Green Glue Noiseproofing Compound from a 5-gallon pail with use of Application Tool. Detailed instruction from receiving your pail and applicator tool to clean-up.
Constructing a Soundproof Wall
This video shows a time lapse of a soundproof wall that was built to prevent sound from traveling out of a manufacturing space into adjacent offices. A system of materials was used to accomplish the goals for this project.
Green Glue Noiseproofing Compound is a unique damping product that is ideal for new construction and renovation projects. Green Glue Noiseproofing compound isolates sound and vibration between two layers of construction materials. This is most often between layers of drywall and 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. 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. Just 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. Green Glue is non-toxic with no mixing required. For floors and walls, this product drastically reduces impact and airborne noise. Use this for a range of applications including loudspeaker cabinets, home theaters, and recording studios.
Please note that Green Glue Noiseproofing Compound is a damping compound and is not a substitute for glue or mechanical fasteners. Use Green Glue products in conjunction with sound barriers, vibration isolators and other construction materials to effectively construct soundproof assemblies.

The following installation instructions are given as a general guide to avoid common errors. Installer should follow best practices for construction and workmanship. Acoustical Solutions bears no responsibility for installation or contractor selection. Installation should not commence until building is enclosed and under standard occupancy conditions and surfaces are of acceptable condition and properly prepared. Do not install materials of unacceptable quality. Must be used between two rigid layers; one layer must be porous; e.g. drywall, plywood, OSB. Green Glue is not a sealant or adhesive, therefore fasteners are necessary. Intended for interior use only. Maintain temperature of 60⁰F – 80⁰F within building after installation. Not to be used in conjunction with a construction adhesive. Product intended to reduce sound transmission between rooms and does not affect noise within a room.
