Recent Advances in the Sound Insulation Properties of Bio-based Materials. Xiaodong Zhu,a,b Birm-June Kim,c Qingwen Wang, a and Qinglin Wu b,* Many bio-based materials, which have lower environmental impact than traditional synthetic materials, show good sound absorbing and sound insulation performances. This review highlights progress in sound. Tell me if Sound Proofing works please We've just renovated our terraced house after a fire and took extra money and time to put additional sound insulation in the both the party walls in the loft (building regs requirement) and also in all the floors and internal stud walls .
