That’s simple – MLV can be installed almost anywhere! MLV can be used in homes, offices, cars, or anywhere you want great results in sound reduction. Some frequent uses include walls, ceilings and floors, as well as on pipes, in automobiles, outdoor areas, and many other applications.
We do not recommend using adhesives as a permanent bond for MLV. If you are looking for a short-term hold, you can use a standard construction adhesive to adhere the MLV to whatever substrate you are working with.
Yes, MLV can be installed on the ceiling securely using fasteners. We recommend that you make sure that you have someone helping you, because MLV is heavy!
We recommend using either screws with washers or cap nails to attach the MLV to your substrate. This will securely hold the MLV, giving you a clean install and the peace of mind that it will last.
Yes, Green Glue is perfectly safe for use in your home and other indoor areas. Green Glue is non-toxic, environmentally friendly, and mold-resistant, making it a perfect option for your home soundproofing project.
No, Green Glue Compound or Sealant should not be used as an adhesive of any kind. Green Glue is a sound-absorbing material and is not meant to be used to hold anything together on its own.
You do not have to use both the sealant and the compound from Green Glue. They will work independently of each other. However, you may not experience the best results unless you use the entire system, as laid out in the instructions.
