JCW Acoustic Sealant and Applicator Gun

JCW Acoustic Sealant is a high strength, permanently flexible white acoustic sealant and adhesive specifically formulated for sealing and bonding plasterboard

It is ideal for sealing the edges of plasterboard systems and filling and sealing any holes where services have been installed, thereby preventing the leakage of noise

It is paintable once cured – see below for more detail about approximate curing times – and is manufactured to a professional trade quality.

This non-flammable sealant is water based, solvent free, is easy to use and clean up and adheres well to just about all substrates used in the building and construction industry

It works equally well on acoustic insulation boards and can be successfully used on walls, ceiling and dry lining applications. Use it to fill large gaps in existing timber floorboards or spaces between floor decking before overalying with acoustic materials.

It is particularly recommended for sealing the perimeters and edges of floating floors before applying additional soundproofing materials in order to further enhance acoustic performance.
