Dynamat vs.Lowes "peel and seal"

I am looking for a solution to making my musclecar quieter inside(not outside LOL) Dynamat is pricey and I saw somewhere there was talk about using peel and seal from lowes ( a fraction of the cost)
Has anyone used this and what was the results. Are you satisfied?would you do something different? Anyone have a different suggestion? Thanks

I used two types, a foil encapsulated foam called EZ Cool from LoBucRod on the open flat areas of the interior http://www.lobucrod.com/ and B-Quiet which is like a Dynamat product inside the doors http://www.b-quiet.com/testimonials.html. If you read the EZ Cool data they specifically say that this is not the foil bubble wrap from the hardware store. The foil/foam is installed with spray contact cement, and the B-Quiet is peel & stick.

Peel& Seal is an asphalt based roofing product, and Dynamat is butyl based sound deadener. While they look a lot alike, they are not the same thing. You have to look at the specs for each one to do a proper comparison. I personally think Dynamat is over priced, and rspears has found some of the better alternatives.

i have used the B-quiet product. Peel n stick product on my 1961 Dodge Lancer. After about 7 yrs a few edges were lifting slightly

Also used it on a stainless steel sink for the kitchen. The B-quiet really reduced the sink noise when the disposal was running

I used the "Peel & Seal" on my Maverick, works great! The only downside I can see is if it ever needs to be removed it will require a ton of work to get it off...

The problem with peal and seal is that it is not designed for vertical surfaces. If you use it on doors or the roof the sun's heat will soften the asphalt adhesive and it will eventually fail. I suppose you could use it on the floor without too many problems but there is no way I would use it on vertical surfaces at all. The butyl based stuff won't soften so much in the heat and is in the end a much better, although much more expensive choice.

I was concerned with that. I saw another post (on another site) someone said that when exposed to heat it will come loose and eventually fail, also someone said it oozes a tar like mess when it gets hot.That would be nice to see on a brand new headliner.
Thanks centerline, I have not made my choice, but it wont be peal and seal, thats for sure.

Think about it. Peel and Seal is intended to be used on the roof of a building with support underneath it. Just like Centerline said, it is not intended to be used on vertical surfaces, or worse, overhead with no support under it at all. I would think in a hot climate it would be a terrible choice. Remember, these products are intended to be used for sound deadening, not for heat resistance. None of the products mentioned say they are solely for heat resistance. Heat resistance, if it happens at all, is an afterthought, not the main intention of any of these products.

I used a peel and seal foil insulated product from Bob Drake when I built the coupe . It was not real expensive and no problem hearing the stereo or convesation.

I used the DynaMat
IMHO ... it works great and it worth the $$$.



I also used Lizard Skin.



The DynaMat works great for the sound and heat and the Lizard Skin is for the heat. Lizard Skin also has a sound formula.



It gets HOT here in the HOT, HUMID South ... and I wanted the 32 3W quiet and COOL inside. I have the DynaMat and the Lizard Skin everywhere. The roof, the doors, the floors and even the trunk area.

The 3W is quiet and is easy to cool with the Vintage Air Generation Mini II



Go here for the Lizard Skin info web page

I used Peal and Seal on two different cars.

The first was a dark colored coupe....It pealed off the doors and back of the cab....NOT GOOD !!!!!

The second car was a lighter color. I put two strips in the door just to test it......It pealed off when the car sat out in the sun. And that is in Northern Wisconsin....NOT GOOD !!!!

If you live South of the North Pole.... DON'T USE IT !!!

Cheap doesn't always work !
