Remember to look at the specs. The thickness of the sound deadening compound and the thickness of the foil face are what to use for comparison.

More important to check is the density (weight/sq ft.).

Yes, if FatMat published those specs. Dynamat is 1.7MM thick, or 67mils thick including the 4mil foil layer with a weight of .45 lbs. per square foot.

FatMat says its product is 50 mils thick without saying how thick the foil layer is or its weight per square foot. So FatMat is about 75% as thick as Dynamat Extreme.

A good thread to search for is the "Lizard skin alternatives." It covers a bunch of options for floors etc.

Rattle trap looks real good. It is thin enough I could still use Jute under the factory carpet and have the benefit of the noise/heat reduction of the mat.
Good lookin out 65.
Thanks to all the guys who contributed.
I am still on the fence but I like the rattle trap the best of all at this point. It has its own adhesive and is very thin , also not as expensive as dynamat.

Dynamat 10455 Xtreme Bulk Pack 9 Sheets is 36 square ft.

Rattle trap talks about thickness no coverage information, you see anything on that?

Yeah Pepi, it is 159 bucks for 100 square feet.I didnt see a price on the EZ cool.
Dynamat sells a 9 sheet pack that covers 36 square feet that costs 229 bucks.So its more expensive, at least that is the eastwood price, it may be a little cheaper elsewhere.

Letech,
That amazon has some goofy stuff, I find car related supplies and parts all the time, you do as you do with the ebay, know you brands. It is a decent bookmark to have on hand for a reference if for no other reason.

Fatmat is what i use on all my clients cars. it is affordable and it works really well. I just finished up a blazer and we put it in the entire vehicle and it is very quit going down the road and heat isnt a problem either. You can buy it from fatmat direct and you can get it in 25, 50, or 100 Sq ft at reasonable price. they also make rattle trap and mega mat.

Haven't tried either yet, but check this site. A significant majority like "Peel and Seal".
Screw dynamat. Peel and seel great sound dampening material.... | The H.A.M.B.
Only downside is - many of those reporting cannot spell; eg: Seel means "to blind"

The information that's here is there so people know their choices. Asphalt costs less than butyl rubber. There are lots of other choices besides Dynamat that are cheaper and work as well and are butyl based. If you want to use Peel & Seal, by all means do so, but you get what you pay for.
