SOUND PROOFING DRYWALL
Soundproof drywall is a high performance engineered soundproofing product with enhanced noise reducing properties to soundproof interior walls.
These special drywall panels are made up of multiple layers of different materials, meant to increase the mass of the wall, thereby reducing the amount of sound penetrating through to another room.
Material used in Sound-Proof drywall
The layers that make up soundproofing drywall panels varies depending on the level of performance it was designed for. Most often the are constructed of thick paper facing, gypsum, steel sheet metal, and special mass loaded polymers.
Gypsum is a mineral with a composition of calcium sulfate dihydrate. It is a soft mineral that when mixed with a binder, can be pressed together into hard sheets, then wrapped with thick paper liners to form a sheetrock panel.
The steel sheet metal and mass loaded polymer layers are typically sandwiched in between the layers of gypsum. This construction forms a rigid, and mass loaded drywall panel perfect for soundproofing a wall in a room.
