Moisture Traps

This may have been asked before, but I couldn't find it.

The question arose about the foil style sound deadener/insulation. Is this stuff a moisture trap? I'm especially concerned about inside doors which are exposed to direct rain/moisture.

I'm interested in learning anyone's long-term experience with this stuff.

I just got done doing the roof panel and inside door panels with Hushmat. The stuff is heavy and not thick as the foam stuff is. Hushmat sticks to anything and really deadened the sound inside.
The stuff you are talking about is probably the aluminum foil on one or both sides. That stuff works well, but you want the closed cell foam. It won't trap water or absorb it. The downside with that stuff is getting it stuck down. You have to use the spray glue and wait for it to tack up.

You probably don't want to use the lightweight air filled stuff (if that's what you're talking about) inside the doors. Dynamat, Hushmat, Fatmat, etc. would be a better choice and easier to apply.
