Hybrid application of MLV?
« on: March 24, 2004, 03:13:38 AM »
I've been pricing soundproofing materials and came across a company that uses RC, MLV "patches", vinyl tape, etc.  The interesting part is the 4" patch (every 12") rather than a whole sheet in between layers of drywall.  Would the 4" adhesive strip that you sell (cut into patches) provide sufficient soundproofing if used in a similar manner?  I'd still use RC with damping tape on it, patches, taped drywall joints, neoprene to support the drywall, and caulk everywhere.  The walls will be metal studs with mineral wool or fiberglas insulation.  After pricing materials, a room from Super Soundproofing would be less than half the cost of the other system.
