Essential for almost every soundproofing project, to be used in all perimeter gaps and sealing between Acoustic Plasterboards, and MuteBoard™. To be used with a Jumbo Applicator Gun.
Acoustic and Intumescent Sealant is an absolute essential for soundproofing. General advice for the majority of soundproofing products, especially with the use of Acoustic Plasterboard, or installing rigid materials, is to leave a 2-5mm gap from the perimeter to reduce ‘Flanking Transmission’, a negative impact of sound taking an alternative route to the direct and ‘obvious’ path, for instance through the wall and not the two adjacent walls. This form of ‘Flanking Transmission’ is where the two solid materials in contact quickly pass through vibration, and the Acoustic Sealant acts almost like a putty, it does not set solid. Acoustic Sealant is also to be used between Acoustic Plasterboard layers, and on each sheet, to increase the air-tightness of the ‘acoustic barrier’.
- 900ml tubes (requires 900ml applicator gun)
- Covers approximately 32 linear meters with a 5mm thick bead
- Please allow about 24 hours curing time before decorating over (4-5 days in a damp environment)
Cut off a suitable section from the plastic nozzle, usually, a pea-size exit hole will give you a suited bead.
Pierce the metal lid through the nozzle with a screwdriver or other long device to expose the sealant, forgetting to do this may cause the sealant to come out of the back of the cartridge when applying pressure with the gun.
Lock into the Jumbo Applicator Gun, a 300ml will not be suitable here.
Apply force to the gun to expose sealant, if none appears to be coming out with force applied, try making sure the metal lid was pierced correctly.
Apply to installation instructions given on that particular Acoustic System.
