VerteTek introduces Coat of Silence, a patent-pending, paintable sound reduction coating designed for easy application on interior surfaces including ceilings, walls, plaster and drywall. The company states that its Coat Of Silence resilient layer (base coat) is scientifically formulated to deflect sound transmission with a 52 STC rating(tested on 5/8 drywall with insulation, non-staggered metal studs).
SBR (styrenated buradiene rubber) forms an actual rubber membrane as it dries/cures along with a heavy bodied water-based latex and sound absorbing fillers that deflect sound and keep it contained. The Finish Coat has the same sound deflecting formula with a hardening agent to create a complete sound reduction system.
VerteTek says that it tested its sound reduction process in accordance with ASTM E90-09 and E413-04, as well as Underwriter Laboratory (UL), which has been testing products and helping to define standards for more than 75 years. UL evaluates more than 19,000 types of products, components, materials and systems a year.
