Sound deadening

Sound deadening

Postby Robesine [OP] » March 4th 2019, 1:53pm

Hello everyone,
I have seen many types of sound deadening around. I was wondering if anyone has noticed a big difference between the brands? I have been using GT mat 80 mil. Thanks in advance

I have used pretty much all of it, Boom mat, GT mat, Noico, Dynamat, Kilmat, Fatmat...you name it.
It's all pretty much the same, adds mass to thin panels. I used Noico the last install.

If you want to save a little money use Peel & Seal on the floors, works great. Don't use it on anything vertical or over head, but it works perfect on floors.

does any of that stuff cause rust to build up under it over time? Kinda like the stuff under the stock carpet does? Just curious -sorry to have changed the subject kinda sorta.

As longs as its clean and sealed (no bare metal) when you put it down it will be fine.
But honestly I've never pulled any to check under it.....once that stuff is down its a nightmare to pull up or remove!

That brings me to another thing. When installing any of those sound deadeners you have to use a roller and really press that stuff down for it to work it's best. Form it around every little angle and dip so it makes good contact with the surface.

Tell me about your experience or what you may have heard about not using Peel & Seal on ceiling areas.
( I ask this rather sheepishly, hoping no one will notice )

And are there some that CAN be used overhead? Obviously with more expense. Maybe Dynamat?

Its fine to use Dynamat or any of the others on vertical surfaces or overhead.
The reason not to use Peel & Seal on vertical surfaces or overhead is because it doesn't stick as well and may, over time, come loose.

But its great on floors and saves a lot of cash using it there.

I haven't had any issues with peal & seal on my ceiling and walls. I wiped down the interior with acetone and warmed up the peal & seal before applying it. its been stuck there for over 4 years. I am up north though.
