Anyone use this as sound deadening material for cars? Since it is asphalt-based, does it smell when it gets hot?

Answer: 
It's great for car audio. People that own shops want you to think it's not because most people don't know how to apply it right. You heat the useal first AFTER cleaning the area with rubbing alcohol. Use 2 layers and it's perfect.

Although aluminum backed butyl works best for sound dampening, I've used this on several vehicles with favorable results. It does a good job of reducing both road noise and vibrations from subwoofers. Both butyl and rubberized asphalt have a slight smell to them however, none of my passengers have noticed ANY smell in the cabin area. Sound mat (butyl) material is expensive and worth the price for upper end installs (NVX is thicker and cheaper than competing brands). Butyl asphalt is an effective and economical alternative. And yes; I used butyl asphalt in my Shelby and have 0 regrets. Read Less

Answer: 
As a professional car audio fabricator/installer,, I can assure you this is NOT the product to use as sound deadener. This is an asphalt based sealer, not a butyl based deadener. This product WILL smell during the summer months, for several years based on your location (weather). In my 20 years of car audio, experience has proven that if you spend a few extra dollars, the results will be much better.

Answer: 
It says right on the package that it should be used over 50 degrees. If it's too cold it won't stick for application. Once it's set you're good in the winter; it won't peel back off.

Rated 4.1 out of 5 by 16 reviewers.
Rated 5.0 out of 5.0 by Good for Box Gutters I've used this several times to repair holes in my 113 yo tin box gutters. They've developed some oxidization spots (Pittsburgh used to have really bad air) or other punctures and this stuff does the trick. Just make sure that the surface is as clean as it can be (i usually brush away the dust or blow/vacuum it 1st), and dry. Cut the patch larger than it needs to be to ensure that it seals the opening. Use a roller or a gloved hand to press the compound in to the surface to be sealed to ensure that it's fully adhered. I patched several holes a couple of years ago and they've held up to the seasons. I purchased again to line a leaking gutter for about 6 feet. Not an ideal solution, but a heck of a lot cheaper than some roofer getting the prevailing wage. If I think water might still get under an edge, I'd use some caulking, gutter sealant, or roof patch to dress the edge. February 21, 2016
Rated 1.0 out of 5.0 by Didnt hold on trailer roof as stated in description. I removed the old non silicone based sealer that was on the roof, used a wire brush on a grinder to remove all previous calking. Next i used a solvent based cleaner - then dried the area with a clean rag. Things looked great however after one trip with the trailer the tape started to peal away from both itself and the trailer. It was so poorly created that the silver even the silver foil was pealing away from the tape itself in several areas. The directions state to use a 3 inch overlap on areas that it should bond to each other - even that pealed up. it was put on mid 80'sF and allowed to set for 3 weeks before rain or the trailer was used. Now i have a mess - Distributor will not stand behind it - Many other better products out - i was trying to save some time with this and get it from the HD. October 9, 2013
Rated 4.0 out of 5.0 by GREAT FOR A MOTORHOME ROOF.(SURVIVED EXPANSIONS & CONTRACTIONS & FREEZING) >>>>>I used this TAPE to seal a "crimped" seam in a metal motorhome roof---a problematic situation because of wide temperature swings (hot sun in summer, and snow in winter, with some "ponding" after storms), and because of the use of "butyl" sealant in the mechanical seams when originally manufactured (which "bleeds" even 30 years later, damaging painted roof coatings, and this also prevents caulk from staying stuck down there for more than a few months). This TAPE has held up well for over a year now, and still looks new. The under-surface ("asphalt-based" portion) is still malleable, so one wonders how well stuck down it is--but IT IS--so far). I think that the KEY APPLICATION TECHNIQUE here (other than cleaning the deck with soap and water, and then with a solvent too --I used acetone, available in small metal containers) is to repeatedly FORCE the tape onto the substrate. I used a SMALL (really narrow) roller and my body weight, over and over, back and forth to set this Tape in place (most such adhesives now are Pressure-Activated, so do work hard at this step!). I then pounded the entire thing down, back and forth, with a hammer, to do everything I could to activate that adhesive! So far, it looks as if that worked well! . >>>>>As for the cost, I have seen many "specialty" products that cost a LOT MORE, and have not held up this well. The only comparable item I have used--"Eternabond", and that does what it sounds like--it IS permanent, even though black-only, without a metallic layer on top. These are side by side on this roof, and BOTH so far move well with the expansion and contraction of this roof. [The Eternabond is damaged easily by scuffing or by tools.] We'll see as time goes on further.... Can they BOTH be ETERNAL? November 14, 2013
Rated 5.0 out of 5.0 by The best for sound deadening! I've experienced dynamat in my friends car before it definitely helps with sound quality but it is way too expensive to buy. This serves the same purpose. Just installed this today and sound quality made a huge difference than before. No more rattles from outside the car. September 22, 2015
Rated 5.0 out of 5.0 by GREAT STUFF I am a hack so thank god this stuff works so well. I am using it as suggested on u-tube as sound deadener in my car. I used a whole role in my trunk of my 2014 corolla don't think I missed a spot. This is very easy to use, place, and cut, it sticks very well, you do not need a roller , it is extremely pliable. If you put it down at a bad angle you can pull it back off and reset it. I used on rear deck, and rear seat backs also of car. I am going back to get some for the doors. I have noticed a very faint smell when I open car in the morning, but it dissipates quickly, I expect / hope that it will completely go away . This is 59 mils thick, the gray stuff at lows is thinner. Got some stuff on scissors after making so many cuts but it will come off. All in All extremely happy with results excellent product! Do recommend July 31, 2015
Rated 5.0 out of 5.0 by Soundproofing a truck There are products like this called Dynamat or Fatmat, etc. These are self adhesive aluminum foil rubberized asphalt-based adhesive systems. Essentially you lay these products on walls, floors, inside door panels etc. My 2003 Dodge Ram was a loud rattle trap, I couldn't hear myself think. Dynamat is the same product, just 2-4x more expensive (or more). I used this, USEAL BAND 6 IN., instead and wow, what a HUGE difference. 2 rolls did all 4 doors and I can't believe the results. The doors close with a thud, cars pass by quietly and I can hear myself talk in conversational tones now. Plus, no shipping or handling costs, just run by Home Depot and pick up a few rolls.

Rated 4.0 out of 5.0 by Great use on truck I used this product on my bronco, just like other person could not hear nothing and had to yell while driving to have a conversation. I ripped out carpet before that's why It was to much noise. I applied 50ft 2 roles, wish it was a little wider. I did half of the truck and the sound improved, I can hear again and don't need to blast music anymore. off to buy more. need to cover other half of truck, then front and roof, doors. February 6, 2015
Rated 1.0 out of 5.0 by Junk Totally junk. Fell off in short time. Wish the Home Depot will sell quick roof again January 4, 2015
