Anyone planning a soundproofing project should take some time to familiarize himself with the myriad of soundproofing products available. While Green Glue is one of the most popular, Silenseal Acoustical Sealant is a close second – something no soundproofing project is really complete without.
No matter what size your project you will likely need to use some sort of acoustical caulk. Small soundproofing projects, involving simply sealing cracks or spaces, will be very easy to complete. To complete larger jobs you’ll need to seal the seams between your new layers of drywall. No matter what you’re doing, you’ll find that Silenseal is the best acoustical caulk to choose.
Silenseal, as mentioned, is one of the most popular acoustical caulks used by sound proofing experts. Silenseal has been proven to provide a very high STC (Sound Transmission Class) rating in just about every situation, ensuring you end up with a truly soundproof room. This particular product has been used in a wide variety of projects, including homes, apartments, condos, office buildings, conference rooms, hotels, and more.
Is it easy to use? Of course! Silenseal comes in a tube that is easily slid into a caulking gun. You can apply the acoustical sealant to metal, concrete, gypsum board, and even wood. It’s easy to apply and, if you should make a mistake, easy to clean up with soap and water.
How expensive is Silenseal?
Silenseal costs around $90 for a case of 12 or $35 for a case of 4 tubes but can often be found on sale. Its low price makes it one of the most affordable acoustical sealants available.
The amount of use you get out of each tube will vary depending on the type of project you are completing. If you use a ¼ inch thick bead, for example, you’ll get around 89 linear feet out of a tube. If you use a ½ inch thick bead, on the other hand, you’ll only get 22 linear feet.
Silenseal is a nonflammable material with a number of benefits. It is considered to be VOC compliant and won’t stain or bleed through the surfaces you apply it to. It’s both adhesive and cohesive as well – making it flexible enough to use in a variety of situations.
Acoustical caulk is a must-have when it comes to completing just about any soundproofing project. Add it to your list of products to research as you plan your next project!
