Frequently Asked Questions

Dynamat is a thin, flexible, easy to cut and mold sheet that significantly reduces noise causing resonance and vibration. It does this by using visco-elastic qualities that promote vibro-acoustic energy conversion. In short, that means noise becomes silent energy.

You can apply Dynamat in patches (25-50% area coverage) to keep a specific panel from resonating or you can apply it over an entire area (such as the floor, doors, or boot) to create a sound barrier and vibrational damper.

Even a small amount of Dynamat can cause a profound noise reduction.  For example, applying Dynamat to all the doors of your vehicle can reduce road noise by 3-6dB. This would translate to about a 25 - 30% reduction in noise. Complete coverage of an average vehicle that has no other sound reduction materials can reduce road noise by 9-18dB.

As a car operates, it generates noise. This noise is caused by the transference of energy (vibration) from the internal components and from the road to the chassis  of the vehicle. The chassis (doors, floors, roof etc.) transforms this vibration into audible noise. Dynamat transforms the energy (vibration) into silent energy.

Known as a ‘constrain layer damping material’, Dynamat Xtreme is made up of an extruded self-adhesive black butyl rubber with an aluminium foil constraining layer which allows the butyl to perform at maximum efficiency. The product has an overall thickness of 1.7mm and has a peel and stick application.

Dynamat Xtreme deadens noise using a process called ‘damping’ – In simple terms, this process restrains vibration (noise) by dissipating or using up the energy causing those vibrations. Dynamat converts the movement of the vibration and turns it into silent low-grade thermal energy.

Further detail:
• The ‘Dynamat difference’ comes from the patented chemical formula within the Butyl rubber, known as our VECTOR™ chemistry.
• The process that occurs within Dynamat Xtreme to silence the kinetic energy (vibration) is called ‘Vibro-acoustic energy conversion’
• Dynamat have used the same chemical and aluminium suppliers since 1998 because of our commitment to product quality and consistency.
• Dynamat is proudly made in the USA and everything involved – even down to the card packaging - is sourced within a 200 mile radius of the HQ in Hamilton, Ohio USA.
• Dynamat Xtreme doesn’t contain bitumen and therefore carries no odour and does not have a ‘shelf life’ or degrade over time.
• Thicker is not better – This is a misconception fuelled by certain competitor products – However, if their noise damping performance matched ours, their product would be made thinner.

We commission independent testing on our products and those of other producers. These tests are performed to obtain what is known as an ‘acoustic loss factor’ – the theoretical maximum this value can be is 1 (no vibration). Dynamat Xtreme comes out on top consistently at a temperature of +68°F (+20°C) – a typical temperature in a real-life environment. Dynamat Xtreme has an acoustic loss factor of 0.42 at 200HZ and 2.2KG/ Msq. This makes Dynamat Xtreme the most efficient damping material on the market.

Dynamat meets the US federal motor vehicle safety standard (FMVSS) 302. The UK equivalent of this is ISO3795.

The Dynamat range of products are used to control noise and heat in all manner of applications. There are different products within the range that solve these issues in the most effective way based on the source and application. Dynamat Xtreme is used to significantly reduce structure-born noise or vibration and Dynaliner is used as a thermal insulator, Both products work best when used together they perform better as a pair.

We recommend applying Dynamat to any surface you can easily reach.  In general, we recommend treating your vehicle in the following order: Doors, Boot, Parcel Shelf, Floors, Roof, Bonnet, Quarter Panels.

Heat coming from a hot exhaust or headers is a common problem.  Fortunately, there is a solution.  First, apply Dynamat Xtreme to the floor and firewall, then install Dynaliner, both underneath the floor carpet.

Installing Dynamat requires only a few tools: razor knife or scissors, roller tool, rags and a solvent- based cleaner (rubbing alcohol also works). You also need basic hand tools for the disassembly and reassembly of your vehicle. Consult your owner's manual or vehicle's shop manual for instructions. Review the Car Audio Installation Instructions before starting.
