Environmental responsibility drives a newly ascendant market, one that conscientiously provides state-of-the-art products and space-age materials. The products satisfy stringent eco-regulations, of course, and they satisfy a specific function, that of economically insulating a room or entire home, but features must also meet form. In other words, the exhaustively tested products must add value in the form of an eco-friendly formulation. These begin with energy-conserving viscous compounds, but extend to encompass sheets and tapes. Green glue compound, for example, provides a solid sound dampening solution, but it also serves the environment in a more direct manner by providing a non-toxic foundation, one that can be built upon by adding additional films, sheets, and tapes to the project. Sound is canceled, air is kept inside, and a non-toxic installation philosophy is established.
It’s important that an installer assesses sealants for their neutral ways before they’re applied. The product in question should retard flame and negate the build-up of spore-producing films of moisture. This is an especially big concern when the material is used after construction, perhaps during a retrofitting or restoration project. No one wants to engage in what should essentially be an environmentally sound endeavour when the insulating material is actually making things worse. Green glue compound is chemically neutral. The formulated noise reducer bonds fast, dries without generating odour, and it has a high resistance to mold, thus positioning the sound attenuator as a builder’s friend. Easy to apply, it works with other insulants and tapes to dissipate ninety-percent of noise.
Of course, like a newly installed energy-conserving window installed in a poorly designed frame, green glue compound needs environmental partners, sealants that are equally kind to the local environment. The tape should be tacky, should consistently adhere to every irregular contour, and be able to match the compound with sound leakage prohibiting properties. Special foam inserts aid this function, which serves the building project well when edges don’t quite meet. The sealant fills gaps, bridges seams, and the tapes finish the project, putting the proverbial “full stop” on the work at hand. The result is a taped, sealed, and fluid-sandwiched room that is entirely decoupled from noise. Additionally, each product incorporates flexibility, the ability to expand ever so slightly and contract when either the weather or external influences change dramatically.
All-in-all, the formulated sealants, compounds, tapes, and mechanical fasteners are designed to promote a totally toxin-free and chemically neutral structure, which matches acoustic isolating intentions with a healthy respect for the environment.
