Green Glue – Noise Proof your world. A great solution for your sound proofing needs!
Green Glue Products include Noise Proofing Compound, Noise proofing Sealant and Whisper Clips.
A lot of people wonder how a simple layer of Green Glue Noiseproofing Compound is so effective at dissipating noise. To understand the science behind the compound you need to understand a little about the energy of sound waves and how they travel.
Noise travels through the air like a wave or an airborne vibration. When these waves hit a ceiling or wall, the vibrations will pass through the structure and exit through the other side as sound again. That is, unless the structure is damped.
Green Glue Noiseproofing Compound has a unique polymeric formula that converts the mechanical energy from sound waves into small amounts of heat. When the compound is sandwiched between two rigid layers of material (like drywall), it forms a damping system. So, when sound waves pass through the structure, the energy is dissipated in the form of heat.
The result is dramatic – just one layer of Green Glue Noiseproofing Compound in between two sheets of drywall can eliminate up to 90 percent of noise, even at low frequencies. The diagram above illustrates how this damping system works to convert sound energy into heat and provide efficient noise-proofing.

“Thanks so much for all your help!! “Pagan Studios in Frankston was built using Green Glue and acoustic sealant and the results are amazing!! My wife sleeps soundly in bed while right downstairs, blistering metal is cranked up to 11 at 2am in the morning. You can’t hear a peep from outside and I honestly don’t think my neighbours even realise there is a recording studio operating next door, so our clients can work at whatever time suits them. These products were absolutely worth every cent and I cannot endorse them enough!! On behalf of myself, my wife and my neighbours – thank you. The entire team at Foam Sealant are really helpful with great advice and customer service and were a true pleasure to deal with!! I recommend them to anyone looking to reduce sound bleed or soundproof a room.
Cheers, Jesse Page Pagan Studios”
