Unfortunately, the 1/8 thick Supersoundproofing did not work well for me. I attempted to use this material as an underlayment in re-carpeting my C-150. Several days after the roll arrived I went to cut it to fit. I was unable to get it to separate from the paper backing. I tried several places on the roll, even using a single-edged razor blade, but it would not peel off. I had to resort to using the 1/4 non-adhesive in that location, which had worked well on the remainder of the floor. My rating of the 1/8 is 0 stars.
SUPER SOUNDPROOFING 1/8" W/ ADHESIVE
Works great and high quality material. I was worried that the peel and stick adhesive material would not be strong enough but it was excellent and worked very well. The 3/8 thickness was pretty thick, would have been better off using the 1/4 thick material but it wasnt in stock.
Works very well
This is a great product. I am building a home recording studio and this was an excellent product to soundproof various areas from ducting to pvc pipes and even over copper pipes. It dampens the sound quite well which is exactly what I wanted.
Good product. Have it shipped Rolled.
The product was damaged, Im using it anyways.
Excellent product. Works as advertised. Beware if you order the 50’ in the rolled position it is approximately 4 ft tall by 2 ft wide and weighs 38 pounds
I have used this product before and have had good results. This time, instead of using in my airplane, it is for a mattress in a camping trailer, Two inch thick regular foam just is not firm enough. But this product is much firmer and is really good for this application.
Lighter than expected and great quality

Per the certs, this material is a vinyl-nitrile closed cell expanded foam.
Super Soundproofing meets, or exceeds, the flamability criteria that is contained in FAR 25.853(b).
No, it does not have any aluminum foil attached.
50 ft rolls is the max length.
Per the supplier:
We haven’t provided charts and graphs here because these theoretical ratings are pretty much meaningless in the practical, real world. However, there are useful methods of judging the effectiveness of a soundproofing material by measuring its absorption and transmissibility properties.
Weight, How Far To Go
There is a weight penalty, of course. The Super Soundproofing Mat weighs from .10 pound for the 1/8” to .5 pounds for the 1” material. (Per sq. ft.) A roll of the popular 1/2” X 50’ (200 sq.ft.) mat weighs about 50 Lbs. Obviously, if you put it all in your plane, that’s what the weight increase will be, less, of course vhatever you pulled out. Generally it takes about 3/4 of a roll of l/2” mat to do a good job on an aircraft such as a Cessna 182 About 30 Lbs). Such weights are not much of a consideration in a heavy twin, but can mean a lot in an ultralight. Common sense counts here. If a few extra pounds of soundproofing, perhaps even combined with an attractive interior offends your pocketbook or sensibilities, perhaps an additional investment would be made on noise-canceling headsets for everyone! In such a case, your wallet will be the one undergoing a dramatic weight reduction! And you thought acoustical material was expensive! Remember, headsets will not protect your hearing in the long term. ln general, even a little material is better than none. Usually, more is better, is the rule.
More Noise Reduction Recommendations
The neatness and care that is ‘taken to ensure a good tight fit and through application of the foam to the inside skin areas in forward part of the cabin will determine the effectiveness of your soundproofing job. There is only so much one can do as a lot of sound will still come though the windows. Flat acrylic sheet can be obtained from a plastics wholesaler and cut to fit your old windows patterns is much cheaper than buying precut windows. Those of you who are building experimentals, overhauling or rebuilding aircraft should consider replacing windows with the thickest possible material available (up to 3/81’). Our tests have shown little advantage in using thicker material than that. Thick plexiglass sheet edges can be trimmed with a router tomake them fit the thinner frame hoders. (Go slowly, use care to avoid small cracking). A fiberglass batting made special could be used on the firewall to help reduce sound coming through. Loose fitting fairings in a high wing aircraft can allow lots of noise and should be stopped by caulking the gaps. Use white silicone if in a white area. The caulk should be applied with the fairing loose, the tightened somewhat to make a gasket type seal. Stuffing the soundproofing foam into wing root areas will help too. A noisy door because of a gap in the frame can let in a lot of noise. Cheek the seal and replace if needed.
