LOW PRICED Sound Mats on Amazon
Posted by: playerpage ()

Hey all,

I am still in the process of soundproofing my car, and 50mil has been all I really need. For those who feel the same, I just ran across this deal on Amazon:

Car Sound Deadener Foam 50mil 25 Square Feet - $11.69 and free shipping

That is SOOO much less than I have seen. The same amount and size in Kilmat goes for $45 or so. I bought lots. I figure if I get it and it looks like crap I can always return it. Amazon is easy like that.

It is a foam product. It is advertised as both a sound deadener and a heat insulator. I suspect it is not as good as an engineered sound deadener. Maybe a heat insulation blanket, but foam may hold water. So make sure it is not placed in areas water can get to it, like inside doors or coupe rear window area. Cost should not be prime reason when picking a product like this. Any product must be researched out to ensure detrimental effects to the car will not occur.

I used Dynamat on our Camaro roof for a sound deadener, then a Lowe's R22 insulation sheet for heat reflection. Dynamat and Hush mat will be used through cabin of the camaro and trunk area. Insulation to keep cool inside the car will be look at this year.

Our More Door got Dynamat on under rear seat floor and rear wall. It worked good to reduce noise from Harley pipes exiting straight out the back.

It says "Foam," in the headline, but I don't see any evidence of that in the pictures. It looks more like the same Butyl product.


I'm also seeing that it is suddenly out of stock. Hope I don't get an email from Amazon canceling my order.


I still have some Kilmat, So I will compare when it comes; these descriptions and pictures are what made me pull the trigger on it, and made me conclude they were the same: (Pictures--Kilmat left, Aymario right)

KILMAT $33.99
Automotive self-adhesive insulation consists of butyl.
KILMAT sound deadening has a total weight of 0.35 lbs/1sqft.
This weight ensures optimum efficiency and sound insulation
that could be possibly gained from 50 mil thickness material.
KILMAT 50 mil is light weighted sound deadening material!
1 box of Kilmat 50 mil 25 sqft contains 12 pieces.
The size of 1 sheet is 20x15 inch.
8.53 pounds
Thickness 50 mil=0.05 inch=1.3 mm
Foil with Kilmat Logo

AYMARIO $11.69
Specification:
Condition: 100% Brand New
Material: Dampening Material
Color: Shown as Picture
7.59 pounds
Size: 15x20inch
Thickness: 1.3mm
Quantity: 12pcs
Total Coverage: 25sqft

Package list:
12 * Sound Deadening Mat

Got them in the mail. It's the same stuff as Kilmat. I've got all I need, hopefully they will restock and it will be a good source for someone else.

Who doesn't like a bargain, but years ago I looked at all the different soundproofing mats and ONLY ONE didn't have some kind of complaint posted online, and that was Dynamat. Dynamat has consistently gotten good reviews and is still around compared to a number of bargain companies that are now gone.

Just me, but sometimes it pays to spend extra, especially on a one time use product that can cause a lot of grief if it fails.

I can't argue with those points you made, Vairman, but I thought I'd update this thread to let everybody know that the cheap mats are back in stock:

Car Heat Insulation/Sound Deadener Mat on Amazon

Since posting here, I have received a shipment of 75 square feet of the stuff, which as I pointed out before cost me the same as 25sqft of the Kilmat or Siless brands I bought previously. I have never used Dynamat so I can't speak to it, but the generic mats I received were EXACTLY like the other brands in every way, from packaging to thickness to adhesive.

I used them to line my wheel wells, and I already hear the difference. Unfortunately, almost every other reachable surface in the car has already been lined with the more expensive mats, so I will probably be grumbling for a while about how I wish I had found the others sooner.

Cheers!

Yeah it was pretty heavy. I bent down to pick up the box on my doorstep and it surprised me how heavy it was.

Since I had started the project months ago and was almost done by the time I discovered the cheaper stuff, I have of course a lot more than I will need on the car. But I'm going to hang on to the excess, because you never know where it'll come in handy! Besides, I have a lot of friends with other classic cars that can probably use it.

I used the Russian Noico mat. Not super cheap but works great! I like it because the foil is black.
