Can this be used under rugs or carpet and work like a pad

Asked by JEF November 19, 2020

Yes, this one of the usual areas to use mass loaded vinyl. You must be careful that you cover all staples or nails with acoustic tape. I would suggest glue to attach MLV to the floor. Then on top of that a "floating floor - like the sort of thing that hold the fake wood floors. The MLV should have the instructions with it to do a floor, but the instructions are all over the internet - the key point is no holes in the MLV - that means NO holes.Search the internet for "mass loaded vinyl +floor".

I am remodeling our bathroom and have a bedroom below it. Will this work by placing it on the plywood subfloor and use thinset mortar on it to tile?

Thanks Mike, water proofing fabric calls for thinset under it on the subfloor, maybe I don’t need it on soundproof mat?

What happens if this goes above or below listed temps? Could easily go below 20 in a car.

The listed temps should be respected. There are different MLVs that have wider temp ratings. Continue shopping and you will find one.

Staple the MLV. Tape o er all staples. Never screw through MLV unless you compound the screw area very very thoroughly. Always use approved tape and compound. Sheetrock is better glued. The rack systems for hanging sheetrock on walls are ok, but your effort benefit ratio is poor, IMO, unless you are building a recording studio. Point: never put a hole through MLV if it can be avoided: glue.

This is acoustical advice that pertains to music or recording rooms; it may seem overboard on some sound intrusion issues but if you want it done right - do it right. Cover your hot water pipes with pipe insulation. It is easy to apply. Black with a slit in it and just snaps over pipes. I suggest this precaution because I don't know how hot you run your hot water - some of the boilers are set too high on the hot water mix valve by mistake or oversight..... Don't want to weld the pipe to the MLV. Also, remember you have to tape or fill with special caulking compound every single hole in the mass loaded vinyl or you will get noise intrusion. Holes from staples, nails, or whatever you use... Really! It is a PITA to do MLV exactly right but if you want its benefits, you need to educate yourself on the correct application technique. If MLV is installed haphazardly it is useless.YOU MAY WANT TO THINK ABOUT INSULATING YOUR FLOORS WITH 8 POUND SOUND BOARD - IT REALLY SHOULD BE DONE WITH THIS FIRST AND THEN PUT THE MLV OVER IT... have fun with your music or your silence.

is this 1lb/sqft?

If MLV is rated as 1 that means 1 pound per square foot.

Has anyone used this to reduce noise from exhaust / environment in their car with success?

YES! All higher end automobiles come with MLV installed to reduce noise. Easy install. No holes in it or you lose all benefits!!!

Can this be used outdoors on a brick wall to reduce the sound from a condenser?

Asked by Noise125 August 3, 2020

Answers

Yes. Application might be difficult. Bricks already have a lot of mass so don't expect miracles. I suggest carefully cleaning of all the mortar points that are between the bricks - these are very sharp and they would wear through the MLV very quickly. You may have to layer the MLV with an air space of at least one inch between layers and the layers of MLV cannot touch anywhere for best air spacing benefit. Go ahead and try it. You will get a sound reduction with just one layer, if you follow the instructions and use the approved caulk and tape. If you apply more than one layer be very careful not to puncture the first layer while installing the second layer - this is really overkill for most projects - the two layer method, but if the sound is really bad, then I'd do it if one layer of MLV does not reduce it enough. You also need to remember that sound bends so you might need to deflect it with some boards - this is too complex to discuss here, but look up acoustics and then go to sound deflection and you'll understand it. Good luck. I hate outside noise, myself.

I’d like to install this coupled with a thin neoprene closed cell foam and use it in my car doors...

Did you end up doing this? Thinking about trying, maybe there are spots it can be zip tied on?

We used this to reduce the noise from our basement gym from coming up through the floors and vents. It worked great! We used 5/8 sheet rock to cover over. THIS MATERIAL IS VERY HEAVY! It took 2 guys to install but it really did the job!

It does its job very well blocking the noise.
I installed Xtrmply Soundsafe material on top of existing wall in my office. I hear much much lowered sound from the next office unit that I barely hear talking when I was hearing all conversations clearly before the installation. Also, I had a question about the mild smell after opening the product, Paul Fitzgerald from the manufacturer had responded and explained well that it will dissipate in couple of days just like a new product smell. Now I have a great sound blocking wall and it was easy.

Hard to tell how much it helped, because it was in combination with other measures. However it was definitely a big part of it and would recommend to others. Just beware that it is heavier than it looks and a little ackward to handle. Definitely by the 10' roll vs. 20' if you're doing the job yourself.
