New Dead Zone Sound Deadening Material
- One 18" x 33' (10 meters) sheet
- 50 mil thickness
- Butyl rubber adhesive backed aluminum is ugly and messy, but it sticks like glue
- Perfect for reducing the sound level in cars and trucks. Suitable for use on floorboards, firewalls, door panels, trunks, and anywhere else needed.
- Provides thermal insulation.
- Can be used for sealing roof flashing as well as fixing punctures or leaks in cars, trailers, truck bodies, containers, RV's and campers, or even corrugated roofing.
- Highly tacky butyl rubber backing makes a tight waterproof seal.
Prepare the surface by making sure it's clean and dry. Use degreaser if necessary.
Measure and Cut:
Measure the area to be covered and unroll the amount of Dead Zone material needed. Draw the measurements on the material using a permanent marker. Using a utility knife, cut along the measurements drawn in the previous step. Alternatively, you may try fitting a large sheet of paper to the area you are insulating and cutting it to fit exactly as needed. Then trace the outline of the paper on the peel-off backing and cut along the outline. Save the small scrap pieces – you may need them elsewhere!
Trial Fit and Install:
Trial fit the cut piece before you remove the release liner. Trim any areas needed. When the piece fits well start peeling the release liner from one edge and begin pressing the material in place. Slowly remove the release liner pressing the remainder in place as you go. Once the material is adhered to the surface it is going to stay where you place it so make sure it is going on straight. The sound deadening material can be heated with a heat gun to improve adhesion and conform-ability, especially if installed below 60° F.
Burnish down the material by applying steady, even pressure on every area to
ensure a successful, permanent bond to the vehicles surface. You can use a roller, wood block, or even a tennis ball.
