    FatMat vs Dynamat Extreme

    Am looking out to reduce the sound in my Safari. No, I am not a audiophile, but I do not like the sound the whole vehicle body causes when the engine is at a specific RPM (dam the resonance!).

    Planning to dam some area's like the door and boot.

    Checked out Dynamat Extreme - available in Bangalore (or eBay Global) for around Rs.12,999/- for 36 sq.ft.

    Almost zeroed in on a purchase date, but then, came across FatMat. All of ~Rs.9,000 for 100 sq.ft.

    Now has anyone experienced FatMat here? I have searched and there are people for either side of the table. Some say Dynamat Extreme is over priced tar sheet while others say that with FatMat you get what you pay for!

    There are discussion about FatMat needing to be heated before application whereas Dynamat is peal and seal. But, recent posts suggest that FatMat requires no pre-heating.

    Another point: FatMat product is said to melt (the tar) on high temperatures and cause a mess inside, whereas Dynamat doesn't. Not sure what "high temperatures" are here, since FatMat claims that their sheets can be used even inside the engine bay.

    So, guys, please voice your opinions for and against.

    The purchase, most probably, if FatMat, will be from eBay Global and if Dynamat from the dealer at Bangalore.

    Keeping a watch on this thread. I have been looking for similar solution for my car as well.
    Thanks Wheels for opening one.

    I recall coming across a brand called Noise Kill while googling. Not sure how good they are.

    Yes, there are other brands as well, NoiseKill, eDead and few more. But I have found Dynamat and FatMat being referred to on few soundproof forum discussions (debates on this or that). Hence zeroed in on those.

    (And also because of their ease of availability. )

    Not sure about Fatmat, but I have used Wurth damping for my cars and it worked very well. And its quite inexpensive compared to Dynamat too.

    How much per sq.ft? And how about the application? Peal and seal?

    I don't remember the rates, it was a while back that I had used them for both the Zen and the Baleno.

    Yup, simple peal and stick.

    McL:

    From where did you source it? Did you get it done at MASS or outside?

    TASS does something similar, called Sound Deadening System, at the cost of Rs. 3750/-. They cover the doors and boot. Not sure if going that way is simpler solution to this requirement of mine.

    Sourced it in Bangalore only. Somewhere near Lavelle Road, don't remember the place well either.

    And Jasdeep Brar and myself did the installation on the Zen. And later on memo45 and me moved the entire setup into the Baleno. So it was mostly DIY.

    Wurth is not VFM. it tends to crack / get brittle after a while. Try 3M damping instead. They are better than the wurth and cost almost the same / less.
