As the most cost-effective soundproofing material on the market, the Green Glue’s distinctive properties dissipate the vibrations caused by sound waves as they travel through ceilings, walls and floors.
The compound is a viscoelastic damping compound that converts sound energy into a minute amount of heat. Very simply, when used between two rigid layers of material, typically plasterboard, the compound works to isolate the noise traveling from one room to the other. Unlike other soundproofing products, Green Glue Noiseproofing Compound is ideal for dissipating low frequency noise common with home entertainment and theatre systems.

Despite the Green Glue name, Noiseproofing Compound is NOT a permanent adhesive. The Compound is used between two layers of building materials – typically plasterboard, OSB, MDF, cement board, or plywood, each at least 1/2 inch (12 mm) thick. One of the layers of which must allow moisture to pass through. So long as the two sheets layers are flat, rigid the Noiseproofing Compound will perform well.
Green Glue Noiseproofing Compound should not be used between one or two soft layers, plastics, glass, or metals – i.e. between a carpet pad and plywood or to fill any cavities, such as inside a wall for insulating purposes.
We do not recommend using the Green Glue Noiseproofing Compound on exterior applications as it is effective only at room temperature range (approximately 65-85°F / 18-29°C). Exteriors are often subject to temperature fluctuations which are below and above this range. Please note: if the Noiseproofing Compound is subjected to temperatures outside of this range, including during transport, it will return to regular performance once it has warmed/cooled to the 65-85°F (18-29°C). range. Green Glue Noiseproofing Compound is freeze and thaw stable.
Green Glue Noiseproofing Joist Tape
One of the biggest noise complaints is the sound of footsteps and squeaky floors. The squeaking occurs naturally when floors settle, and joists rub together with sub-flooring – but this is avoidable. The solution is Green Glue Noiseproofing Joist Tape. The tape creates a seal that prevents void spaces which occur as joists and subfloors dry and shrink.
Rolling Green Glue Noiseproofing Joist Tape takes practically no time at all and can easily be incorporated into flooring jobs. Simply roll tape onto floor joists, adhesive side down, and install subflooring on top.
Green Glue Noiseproofing Joist Tape comes in one standard size to the most common joist sizes in renovations and new construction projects.
