Noise is pervasive. It invades our homes and offices, interferes with leisure time and disrupts sleep. At its best, noise is a mere annoyance; at its worst, it can have a significant impact on quality of life. But the Green Glue Noiseproofing Compound from Saint-Gobain Performance Plastics (SGPPL) helps stop the noise - and noiseproof your life.
The Green Glue Noiseproofing Compound, the brand's showcase product, is a cost-effective, easy-to-use noiseproofing solution ideal for use in the construction and renovation of single and multi-family homes, commercial properties and hotels, home theatres and other entertainment spaces.
The Noiseproofing Compound is an eco-friendly viscoelastic material used between layers of standard plasterboard to ensure best-in-class soundproofing at the lowest cost among competing products. The Compound dramatically improves sound isolation and significantly lessens impact noise and structure-borne sound transmission.
RW (or Weighted Sound Reduction Index) is the industry measurement system used to determine the degree to which a wall can stop sound transmission. The higher the RW score, the lower the amount of sound transmission occurring from one room to the other and the quieter the connecting room. Walls containing one layer of plasterboard typically register an RW level of 33-36. An application of the Noiseproofing Compound and an additional layer of plasterboard will improve the RW score to 45 or higher, decreasing sound transmission by up to 90 percent. As additional layers of the Compound and plasterboard are used on the walls, ceiling and floor these results are further amplified.
Says Mark Darby, Global Sales and Marketing Manager, Acoustics for Saint-Gobain Performance Plastics, "The Green Glue Noiseproofing Compound has already become one of the most popular noiseproofing products in the United States, not only because it is cost-effective and fast and easy to install, but because it works. We've conducted hundreds of tests - both in our in-house testing lab and through independent soundproofing labs - and our Noiseproofing Compound consistently tops competitive soundproofing technologies in its ability to dissipate sound energy and deliver optimum RW scores."
The Green Glue Noiseproofing Compound is also the most effective noiseproofing solution on the market at dissipating low frequency bass sounds, those associated with subwoofers in home theatre entertainment systems and other external environmental noises.
Continues Darby, "The Compound's effectiveness at dissipating low frequency sounds has made it a top choice among home theatre and home studio audiences, but this quality also has made it universally recognized as an excellent choice for a variety of residential and commercial noiseproofing projects."
The Green Glue Noiseproofing Compound is the most cost efficient noiseproofing option on the market and is fast and easy to install. One case can typically cover approximately 200 square feet (70 square meters) Each case contains 12 28-oz (828-ml). tubes of the Noiseproofing Compound.
