Silent Running SR1000 is a sound and vibration dampening paint specifically designed for marine applications. This unique marine coating absorbs noise and vibration, and converts it into low-grade heat which is dissipated throughout the surface its applied on. Apply SR1000 to replace conventional sound dampening materials, like heavy mats and wraps.
SR1000 is a double coat, permanent coating with advanced adhesion promoters that work well on metal, fiberglass and wood. It may be rolled, brushed or sprayed on. Paint dries to a hard surface but withstands cracking and chipping from expanding and flexing of the applied surface.
This is also the first sound dampening paint in the marine industry to meet stringent U.S. Coast Guard requirements.

For full noise and vibration attenuation a thickness of 40 mil. is required when fully cured.
can i use silent running for the wall in my room so i cant hear the vibrate from my neigbor stereo??
In short yes; however, applying silent running to a wall or floor surface would not give you a very smooth finish and would only solve the vibration aspect of the noise from you neighbor's stereo. Silent running is not a "sound absorption" material. I would think that the best course of action would be to ask him or her to turn the music down...complain to the landlord...call the police to enforce the local ordnance or law. We all live in a community and it is not right for one member of that community to bully the others by playing the music too loud.If you must spend the money to control the noise I would highly suggest calling in a expert. There are a number of sound and vibration absorbing materials and techniques available but they are all very costly. Sound travels like air or water and you will have to not only do your wall but also the floor and ceiling to get the results I believe you are after.I used silent running to deaden the steel ringing sound on the decks of my steel boat. I sprayed the product on using an airless spray gun under the deck (interior)with the recommended large spray tip. It took a number of application to build up enough of the material...over a 1/4 of an inch...to get the desired effect. I run a commercial boat and there is no approved Coast Guard spray foam material, which I think would have worked better. Silent running is Coast Guard approved and can be sprayed on and from my research the only product I really could have used. I don't think you need a Coast Guard approved product for what you are trying to do.Hope that helps, best of luck,Ron
It does not dampen the sound that much. It works ok with boat motor sound, but had to add more foam to eliminate the sound.Good Luck !!
Sound is transmitted in many ways. Stereo sound form a neighbor can also be transmitted via floor boards as well. Silent Running appears most effective if it is applied as close to the source of sound as possible or on the surface which is resonating with the sound, which acts like a membrane. I suggest to identify the areas which vibrate most, and apply Silent Running there. Silent running is like a paint which translates the energy from vibrations into heat (although oen would not notice any icrease in temperature). Hope this helps.
I am thinking about using this in the bilge area around the motor of a 1957 Chris-Craft: a) will oil and/or bilge sludge in the wood prevent adherence? (I'm assuming even a good solvent cleaning won't get it all); b) will it reduce the noise effectively enough to make a difference? (The engine is below the cockpit in a wide space--8'x 9'x 2')
We used the Silent Running on an uninsulated space about 8" in diameter on an engine compartment hatch board. It adhered well and it seems to have done the job, although it is difficult to evaluate due to the small overall area. On a larger area I believe you would achieve good results. The adherence on your board, however, could be problematic. I would try some TSP to clean the surface, then scuff with a coarse grit sanding. Good luck.

Paul, I would not use this product in the bilge area. First, I do not think you could get it to adhere to the old contaminated substrate...wood. Second, I also do not think it would last in an area where it would be subjected to constant expansion and contraction at lest much more so than a steel or plastic boat. I think you might be OK if you applied it to areas above the bilge; like under the deck or on the bulkhead above the bilge area. I sprayed the material under my steel upper deck to reduce the "ringing" sound of the steel when people walked on it. It did help some but not to the level I would have liked. I would estimate that I would have needed to double or triple the three layers I sprayed to get what I was looking for.Hope this helps,Ron S
