Introduction to soundproofing materials

FREE EBOOK DOWNLOAD ►

Effective soundproofing can only be provided by materials which reflect sound
energy.

Such materials would be massive and non-porous, such as concrete, or a well-made
brick or blockwork wall.

Here is a list of suitable materials:

  • Concrete
  • Bricks or non-porous blocks
  • Plasterboard (also known as drywall, sheetrock, wallboard, & gypsum
    board)

  • Plywood and dense particle board
  • Glass
  • Metal
  • Proprietary flexible soundproofing materials

The two characteristics that all of these have in common is mass and non-porosity.

The last item, 'proprietary flexible soundproofing materials' covers an immense
range of potential solutions, some of which – when you look at their advertising
material – seem to work by magic rather than physics.

They will only work if they are massive and non-porous – simple as that.
