Incredibly versatile sound blocking material.
The Auralex SheetBlok Sound Barrier is a dense, limp-mass vinyl material that's about 6dB more effective than a sheet of solid lead at stopping sound transmission. SheetBlok acts as a thin, dense sound barrier layer in walls, ceilings, or floors. It's most effective when used as one component of a multi-layered construction scheme.
Auralex SheetBlok helps in soundproofing floors and walls and, while it's not normally considered a finishing product per se, it can in some cases be your last layer if you make sure to carefully install it and use trim strips over its seams. Auralex SheetBlok can also be used to wrap HVAC ducting, as a vent noise blocker, as a pipe noise insulator, or under carpet/carpet pad. It holds up against harsh environments and cuts easily with a utility knife or scissors. Famous studio designers buy SheetBlok Sound Barrier repeatedly.

Comments about Auralex SheetBlok 4'x30':
I used this in the construction of a surround mixing control room - about 18' x 15' by 9'(height). Floated walls were built as shear walls using 2x6 studs to create 8" thick wall cavities. Miraflex was used on the inside followed by Proudfoot Acoustics equivilant to this product (barium impregnated vinyl) with 3/4 drywall on top. The ceiling was built as a standard ceiling but with the miraflex, vinyl, then drywall. The floor was a wood kit floor attacked to 1/8" sub floor with the vinyl below it.The result: This room had greatly minimized acoustic issues, was nearly flat in response, and was a joy to use. The vinyl had the effect of creating an astonishingly flat room response with few additional acoustic treatments.The ugly: I owned this studio for about a year before selling and the vinyl outgassing smell never left. I recommend using an additional product to "seal" the wall in order to minimize the smell.Recommendations: If you are building from the walls out, this product will save you money in acoustic treatments, and lessen ear fatigue. The weight is considerable so don't plan on hanging this stuff alone. Build the room out first then anylize the sound again before proceeding. This stuff will produce a wonderful sounding room if you work with it.Buy a nose plug too.... No regrets but I wish I had known about the smell. i would use this product again with no hesitation.
