It is also resistant to many environmental factors such as weak acids, oils and alkalis. Typical applications include applying over studs, joists or suspended ceilings. It can also be used as an acoustic wrap for machinery, pipes, equipment and duct-work.

👍 NO MORE NOISY TENANTS👍 EXCELLENT PRODUCT
Used 2 layers. I stapled on each layer. My tenants kitchen wall is our bedroom wall too. THEY ARE EXTREMELY NOISY TENANTS & BANG ALOT OF STUFF AROUND AT NIGHT. THIS STUFF IS AMAZING. We never hear our tenants anymore. I HIGHLY HIGHLY RECOMMENDED THIS STUFF. It is super heavy to put on the wall, so you need to people, so not to hurt your back. This is a must to buy. We will buy again 👍👍
I live in a 1970 building, with 2 x 4 steel stud and party wall with neighbor that is only double 1/2″ rock on outside, single 1/2″ on my side, fiberglass insulation. I could hear the neighbor constantly when in the bathroom, I could transcribe the conversation if I needed to. At renovation time, I used 3″ Rockwool, 1 layer of Soundsulate and 5/8″ durock. Wow. I havent heard my neighbor since. The key is in the install. Think of sound like it is water…….wherever there is a hole, sound will travel through. One big hole or a hundred little ones, the volume of transmitted sound will be the same. Go to the Burning River Buys website and read the installation tips, and it will work as intended. The better you install MLV, the better it performs. Caulk and tape all the seams like you are waterproofing. No need to use expensive “acoustic” tape or caulk. Any elastomeric caulk and PVC coated tape will work just fine and save you a lot. This is an excellent value in MLV. Make sure you install with a buddy. At 1lb sq ft, this stuff is heavy.
