June 6, 2011. Granville, NY – Saint-Gobain Performance Plastics has launched a multi-lingual YouTube Channel (http://www.youtube.com/greengluecompany
) to showcase the proper application of the company’s innovative Green Glue
The new channel provides a resource for builders, home renovators, and the DIY community to view instructional videos on how to get the most out of Green Glue
technology. These videos demonstrate the correct product application at each step of the process, reducing the time needed to be spent on the job.
“Visually showcasing the applications of The Green Glue
Noiseproofing System helps end users better understand how to utilize the products efficiently and effectively,” says Steve Jette, Marketing Manager, Composites, Saint-Gobain Performance Plastics. “Each video walks the viewer through the process of applying our technologies to achieve the most effective noise dampening in a wall or room.”
The Green Glue
Noiseproofing System consists of four components: Green Glue
Noiseproofing Compound, Sealant, Clips and Joist Tape. When these technologies are incorporated systematically into a home, they substantially reduce noise transmission between rooms, improving quality of life.
The YouTube Channel currently features demonstrations on how to effectively apply the Noiseproofing Compound – the company’s flagship product – and Noiseproofing Clips, with future videos to focus on the Sealant and Joist Tape. In order to appeal to viewers whose first language may not be English, each video is also available in Spanish, with French versions currently in development.
“We have often received requests for visual demonstrations of how to use the Green Glue
System – and not just in English – which was the primary motivation for launching the YouTube Channel at this time,” says Adam Burnett, Business Development Manager. “We’ve received an overwhelmingly positive response so far – along with a lot of requests for more demonstrations – so we will be filming and uploading additional videos in the coming months.”
The Green Glue
Noiseproofing Compound is a viscoelastic product that significantly dampens noise transmission by converting sound vibration into small amounts of heat. When applied as a constrained layer between two sheets of drywall, plywood or other building substrate, Green Glue
Noiseproofing Compound reduces noise transfer from one room to the next by as much as 90%, including low frequency sounds that are normally resistant to soundproofing. The compound comes in easy-to-dispense tubes that can also be used with caulking guns for quick dispersal.
Noiseproofing Clips offer an easy-to-install mechanical decoupling system to separate two sides of a wall. Separating walls helps prevent the transmission of noise vibrations by allowing one side of the wall to vibrate independently from the other. Clips can be used independently to eliminate noise, but when used in combination with Green Glue
Noiseproofing Compound, more than 95 percent more noise can be stopped compared to conventional construction techniques alone.
DIYers and builders can choose to use any or all of Green Glue
’s noiseproofing components depending on the intensity of a noise problem. Individual products can be used easily to address specific noise challenges.
