Sound isolation products are used in a variety of home & commercial applications to significantly reduce vibration and impact noise traveling through a flooring. Peacemaker Soundproofing Underlayment is designed to be installed beneath a finished flooring to act as a shock absorber, reducing the amount of vibration capable of traveling through a structure.
Peacemaker is an environmentally-friendly material, composed of almost entirely recycled tire rubber. Peacemaker is also available in 3.2mm thickness. However, the 3.2mm thickness is not intended to perform in the same manner as our 6.4mm Peacemaker. Our 6.4mm Peacemaker is a much less dense product, allowing it to absorb vibrations effectively. Our 3.2mm Peacemaker is denser than our 6.4mm, meaning it will not absorb vibration in the same manner as our 6.4mm, but will block airborne sound much more effectively.
Peacemaker is a durable and renewable “Green” building material containing more than 80% post-consumer recycled material. Most new rubber products will emit various organic compounds which have a characteristic smell like that of a newly painted room. When properly installed in your floor, these odors will be undetected. If left exposed, in an area with little ventilation, Peacemaker will emit a harmless low-level odor which will lessen over time and poses no health risks. Please note, individuals with increased sensitivity to smell may find this odor unpleasant.
Peacemaker can be used outdoors. The same principles of soundproofing apply: increase mass and significantly reduce/eliminate air flow. In addition to mass and air flow, it is ideal to create a constrained-layer in which Audimute Peacemaker is sandwiched between two layers of harder, more dense materials. The sound energy dissipates in the middle layer because of its elasticity and the change in density.
Exceptional sound barrier. Peacemaker Soundproofing Underlayment has an IIC Rating of 56, making it a great option for flooring underlayment applications.

Green Building Material. Containing more than 80% post-consumer recycled content, may be used toward LEED credits, Recycled Content (credit 4.1 and 4.2) and Indoor Environmental Quality (credit 4.1), also qualifies for Executive Order 13101.
Safe for your health. Non-toxic, non-carcinogenic.
Save Time and Money on Installation: One of the easiest soundproofing materials to work with and install, both in new construction (direct to wood or metal studs) and in remodels (over existing drywall with no demolition).
