Materials 101: Insulation

Tuesday, May 4th, 2010

Insulation is yet another material that many people look at when they think about soundproofing.

The problem is that the insulation used in the typical construction project really isn’t very good at absorbing or blocking sound. That’s just not what it is designed to do.

You’re better off using the pink insulation for it’s designated purpose – heating and cooling – and focusing on other materials, like Green Glue damping compound, for soundproofing. You’ll end up with much better results.
