On shelves at Menards: Green Glue Noiseproofing

BY HBSDEALER Staff

Saint-Gobain Performance Plastics said its Green Glue Noiseproofing Compound and Sealant is now available at Menards stores.

Previously, Green Glue products were obtainable only through the Green Glue website or a network of specialty acoustic distributors. Now the products are available for contractors, DIYers and home theater enthusiasts to purchase directly in the building materials section of 232 Menards stores in the Midwest, the company said.

“Our Green Glue Noiseproofing System is a popular choice for homeowners who are looking for the most advanced soundproofing technologies available,” said Cassandra Rhodes, inside sales and service representative, acoustics for Saint-Gobain Performance Plastics. 

Green Glue Noiseproofing Compound is a viscoelastic product that significantly dampens noise transmission by converting sound vibration into small amounts of heat. When applied as a constrained layer between two sheets of drywall, plywood or other building substrate, Green Glue Noiseproofing Compound reduces noise transfer from one room to the next by as much as 90%, including low-frequency sounds that are normally resistant to soundproofing, the company said.

Southbridge, Mass.-based Hyde Tools launched a new interactive digital master catalog. The flipbook-style publication provides a listing of all Hyde products, with product descriptions, photos and selected how-to videos. 

The digital catalog features easy navigation using an interactive table of contents and index, and also allows readers to search content by keyword, product code, product name or category.

"Print catalogs become out-of-date almost the moment they are printed,” said Corey Talbot, VP marketing and product development for Hyde Tools. “The beauty of a digital catalog is that it can be continuously updated, which allows us to provide our customers with new products and updated information in a very timely way.”

AHMA “hot topics” visit pipelines and politics

BY HBSDEALER Staff

A survey of American Hardware Manufacturers Association’s (AHMA) members shows strong support for the Keystone XL pipeline and notable support for presidential candidate Mitt Romney.

The AHMA’s December Confidence Index survey asked two supplemental questions of AHMA members. The first: “Do you think the president should approve construction of the Keystone XL pipeline?” resulted in 90% "yes" and 10% "not sure." There were no negative responses to the question.  

The survey also asked: “Considering the two leading candidates for the Republican presidential primary, would you prefer Romney or Gingrich?” Sixty percent responded “Romney,” 15% responded “Gingrich,” and 25% responded “Neither of the above.”

The AHMA Home Improvement Industry Confidence Index results are released on the first Wednesday of every month.
