Hi,


I read some posts about a product that's available in the US called Acoustic Caulk or AcoustiCaulk (not sure of the exact name...). I searched here in Europe, but i can not find a product like that.


Three products i have found that could possibly do:

1) Acryllic Kit (non-hardening)

2) Repair Kit for Wood (wood filler, non-hardening)

3) Permanent Repair Kit for wood (wood filler, hardening)


What would be the best substitute for acousticaulk for sealing up a wooden room-in-room construction? Can i use the same product for sealing up sheetrock later on?


I'm open to other suggestions... :)

Thanks!

You might try standard silicone or acrylic caulk. You are only sealing cracks, right?

You'll find that an inexpensive non-cracking caulk works very well.

Go to the store and pick the heaviest 30 or 50 yr caulk.

ArtisTech, Brian,


Thanks for your help and suggestion. I will go and see what they have in store...

Should i pay attention to other characteristics besides weight, such as elasticity? Should the kit become hard (dry out) or should it stay flexible?


Or doesn't that matter very much?


Thanks again!
