Green Glue Coverage

The ideal coverage should be uniform throughout the sheet using 1 - 2 loads/tubes. Do not use more than 3 loads/tubes per sheet since too thick a layer will cause performance to drop. Green Glue will compress to a thin film. This film will not be continuous, and there will be desirable gaps and pockets in the coverage.

Cleanup - Green Glue is Sticky

There is nothing harmful about Green Glue, but warn your installers that it can be tough to clean up after it has dried. Take precautions such as drop cloths and latex gloves when using Green Glue. Take care to remove the Green Glue from unwanted surfaces before it dries. Use 70% Isopropyl Alcohol to clean up Green Glue.

Green Glue Dry Time

Assemble the Green Glue panels within 15 minutes after Green Glue applied. Sheets must be screwed together while the Green Glue is still wet.

Allow Green Glue 30 days of drying time for optimal sound isolation performance. Keeping the room warm and air dry will speed drying.
