What Does Acousti-Coat Sound Deadening Paint Do?
Acousti-Coat Sound Deadening Paint is a paint coating that absorbs and muffles noise in the space where it is made. If you paint a room with Acousti-Coat, for instance, those outside the room will be able to hear less noise originating from inside. Its purpose is to lessen the amount of background noise in the space. Additionally, it reduces ringing and tinning sounds in the area. It helps muffle the room and eliminates annoying echoes. Once this paint is applied, it eliminates echoes and distortions from any sound made in the room. It's like being in your very own recording studio or movie theater. This paint can be used to lessen the echoing of sounds around a room. The reverberation of voices and music players will be much diminished. It's important to visualize this paint as a 'sponge' that absorbs and reflects sound. Because thicker sponges absorb more, the more applications you apply, the better the soundproofing will be.
What Does Acousti-Coat Sound Deadening Paint NOT Do?
Exterior noise cannot be muffled by using Acousti-Coat Sound Deadening Paint. You can still hear noise from the hallway or outside the room after applying this paint. You will be able to hear your neighbors at the same level as before the paint was applied, but they will be able to hear you less clearly.

How Much Space Does Acousti-Coat Sound Deadening Paint Cover?
One gallon of Acousti Coat will typically provide coverage for 50 square feet. In contrast to other "sound absorbing paints," Acousti Coat actually acts like a sound sponge. The effectiveness of Acousti Coat's sound absorption properties depends on the paint's thickness and the number of coatings applied to a surface. Because it is being strengthened with our ThermaCels and sound-absorbing fibers, all that is required to eliminate echoing is the regular 2 coats of this paint. Be aware that additional coats will further increase soundproofing. Think of the paint like a sponge to better understand why a greater volume of sound can be absorbed by a thicker sponge. Coverage is 50 square feet per gallon, so make sure to measure the area to be painted accurately.
How Does Acousti-Coat Sound Deadening Paint Work?
The sound-dampening fillers and ceramic microspheres in Acousti-Coat give this water-based flat latex paint its heft. A 30% reduction in both transmitted and reflected sound is achieved with the use of high-loading Ceramic Microspheres, which include vacuum centers and absorbent pigment fillers. The room's echo is drastically diminished due to these properties.
What Should I Know Before Applying Acousti-Coat Sound Deadening Paint To My Wall?
Soundproofing with Acousti-Coat Paint can cover up tiny flaws in a surface. It can be tinted if desired. White bases can only take on pastel to muted shades of color when dyed. They may always add more to the recipe to make the exact match, so we recommend using half of it for the hue you want. It covers 50 square feet per gallon and is applied at a rate one-third that of "regular" paint. Only apply it on interior surfaces, like drywall, ceilings, walls, plaster, and primed metal or wood. Before applying, make sure the intended surfaces are spotless and dry. Apply two coats and let dry in between for the best effects. This paint cannot be applied as 'thin' as ordinary paint. Maintain a full roller.
