hi,can this product be layered. Currently have 1/2 installed but have room for more. can i glue new pieces onto the existing one?TX
You probably want to use the aluminum installation kit if you wanted to try and layer them. From experience, you may have trouble using any adhesive to keep them layered.

What is the barrier? Is it the aluminum looking outer layer? I'm not interested in blocking fumes/odor - just want to dampen sound. But I do want to have the aluminum looking outward facing layer as it is easier to clean. Thank you.
Yes, this one has the aluminum outer face layer.

I have a SEADOO Utopia 185 and want to quieten the engine noise Is this the product I want? Does it self stick?
No. We use 3M 77 spray adhesive. Product is excellent on diesel engine with 3000 rpm red line. No experience with gasoline 7000 rpms.
I need to insulate my engine compartment on my sailboat is this type acceptable?
Yes Very good sound deadening material used it everywhere I thought there was a vibration and noise emission, really quieted down my inboard engine n exhaust noise attached acoustic foam using 3" flat aluminum washers with a 3/8 center hole used normally to hang rolls of insulation on concrete basements walls also used Silicone adhesive.
WORKS WELL ON A GAS V-8 I/O ENGINE SHOULD WORK FINE ON A SAIL BOAT. GOOD PRODUCT AT A GOOD PRICE. WOULD BUY IT AGAIN.
The material is simple to cut,fit and install,it will work on curved surfaces, my small sail boat has an engine cover, I cut and glued pieces to the in side of the cover and realized a significant sound reduction, my wife said the sound went from annoying to acceptable, a happy admiral is a happy boat. ????
Thanks we have an Endeavour 37 it seems just the ticket
How does this foam hold up over time to the heat around a typical inboard diesel marine engine in a sailboat?
I own a 2004 Carver 36' Mariner and one of the engine hatches foam came loose from the fiberglass and also the foil was separating from the foam. I bought this product and replaced the engine hatch foam. I used 3M 90 Spray Adhesive (very strong stuff) to attach it. It has been on for two years with no problems. Bought enough foam to do the other engine hatch if ever needed. Would highly recommend this product.
It should handle engine compartment heat just fine, that's what it's designed for, but I wouldn't get it too near the exhaust manifold...might be too hot although most sailboat diesels have a water cooled manifold so even that's probably not a big issue.
Excellent. No deterioration in two seasons.
This Acoustic Absorption Foam used in the engine room on my sailboat is holding up very well with no problems. It is an excellent sound barrier.
does one side have a adhesive to bond to a steel wall?
No one side has a foil like heat retardant layer and the rest is acoustic foam. You need to use adhesive that you purchase separately to install it.
Don't know about steel, sticks to fiberglass. I suppose if you cleaned the steel with acetone to remove all oiliness they would stick.
No. Use a High quality spray adhesive.
Can this be used for soundproofing walls to silence voices?
It would help as this stuff is sound absorbing, but there are probably better solutions out there(rockwool insulation). This stuff is designed for sound and heat and has a foil layer on one side to be used in engine compartments where space is limited. I would recommend trying to eliminate the noise at its source first, if possible. Also, most sound leaks through places like vents, or poorly sealed doors/windows than directly through the wall so check those sources first.
yes it can
It is used in marine applications to silence the roar of engines, so should be able to silence voices, but their "egg carton" foam is probably much cheaper and easier to install.Some of this acoustical foam is quite heavy per square foot, and hanging it on walls without it sagging could be a challenge.
Probably, yes, but it's quite expensive. Is this for a boat or on land? Home builders use various types of fiberglass insulation for quieting houses.
Does this product come with a peel off self sticking backing or do I have to use an adhesive?
You need to use contact cement or similar adhesive from your local hardware store. Spread the cement on the hard contacting surface.

this is what you get: soft foam with foil stuck to the other side. The foil side faces the engine so some how I need to stick the foam to the boat. I have no idea. I bought some spray glue in hopes to make it work, but I have my doubts. I'll try it this weekend and let you know.
I used Loctite spray adhesive professional performance 300. Sprayed the foam part of the foam and then sprayed the thing I was sticking it to. Waited 3 minutes and it worked perfect! I didn't think it would work but it's really stuck on there. Be careful becuase once it's on you're not moving it.
The product does not have adhesive ... one side is the foam and the other side is an sliver mylar like coating. I installed the material in the engine room overhead with screws and washers spaced about a foot apart ... the screws were long enough to go through the material (1") and then into the bulkhead with the washers preventing pull through.
Background first. I have a boiler in our finished basement of the house which makes A LOT of noise which we can even hear upstairs. The boiler together with other pieces of equipment, water tank, etc. are encapsulated in a space which has two separate doors (with a couple of inches at the bottom of each door for air circulation). If I glue the soundown acoustic absorption foam to the back of each door (inside of the space where the boiler is) would the sound be drastically reduced? I would install the 1" thick. Or is there a better product/solution? Can someone help me? Thanks!!.
Question to "A Shopper Asked" queston. I have the SAME EXACT situation in my house and your encapsulated equipment is exactly the same as mine - boiler, etc. Did you install the 1" thick foam noise barrier? Did it work? PLEASE reply ASAP. Thank you.
I looked at several different products including this foam. The alternative is a dense rubber material used on boats with diesel motors and comes with a sticky backing and tape, usually laid on the above deck and outer doors of the engine room. Don't know what "drastically reduced" would mean. There will be some reduction - try Home Depot.

I find the foam quieted down my Yanmar dispel considerably. I have no idea what the actual decibel reduction is. There are lots of heavy fiberglass insulation products which are cheaper since you don't have to worry about oil and fuel.
I have an I/O and would like to line the inside of my motor cover with this material to help cut down on the noise....can I use this material? Also . how do I attach this material to the inside of the fiberglas cover?
That's what I'm using it for. I used a spray on contact adhesive.
Worked Great for Engine housing
This product worked great for replacing sound insulation in my Mastercraft Pro205.The material was flexible and easy to form. The tape and adhesive along with the pins did the job.

Soundown Accoustic Absorption Foam - replacement
Replaced a piece on my engine hatch that had disintegrated (14 years old) . Cut new piece to fit shape. Easy to use, looks new again. Used mylar tape to seal edges from the elements.
EASY TO USE AND TO MAKE A CUSTOM FIT
I installed this product in the engine compartment and access hatch of my 26' cruiser. The original insulation was dry and starting to crumble; it needed to go. This new stuff installed easily and looks good. I was hoping for more noise reduction, but it's at least as good as the factory insulation and it looks better.
I used this to replace the old, crumbling engine room insulation on my 26' cruiser. It's easy to cut and install. I was expecting a big reduction in sound levels coming from the engine room, but frankly it sounds about the same. Good product, but I expected more sound attenuation.
Noise reduction - good job!
The Soundown material is easy to work with and does a good job cutting down on noise pollution on my boat.
