Why Second Skin?

There are many choices when it comes to automotive noise and heat control, so why chose Second Skin Insulation?

  • Manufactured in the USA of the highest quality materials
  • Specifically designed to meet tough automotive safety standards
  • Over built to over perform
  • Customer service is second to none

Did you know Second Skin is utilized in the following industries?

  • Aftermarket automotive upgrading/restoration
  • Car audio enthusiast
  • Industrial manufacturing
  • Aerospace industry
  • Military applications 
  • Hollywood/Professional sporting productions

Do not be fooled by imitations. Some sound deadener companies attempt to pass off similar looking products and imitate the Second Skin brand name. These products are typically made from inexpensive alternatives to butyl rubber such as asphalt, tar, or bitumen and will come on rolls with very thin foil or Mylar. This type of product is typically used for roofing.  Although less expensive, they are much lower quality, will not perform well, and may even out-gas harmful vapors and/or melt and fall off. QUALITY CONSTRAINT LAYER DAMPENERS ARE ALWAYS SOLD IN SHEETS - IF IT IS IN A ROLL, IT IS LIKELY A ROOFING PRODUCT MARKETED AS SOUND INSULATION. 

In contrast, Second Skin's vibration mats Damplifier & Damplifier Pro, are designed specifically for sound insulation and engineered for intense temperature ranges in automobiles. Our butyl rubber is formulated to have a specific gravity, viscosity and adhesion strength. This allows it to excel at reducing the most common automotive frequencies associated with road, engine, and exhaust noises. At 6.5 mil thickness, the annealed aluminum constraint layer on Damplifier and Damplifer Pro is one of the thickest in the industry.

Our products are not only high quality, effective, and a majority are made in the USA; if you compare our specs and prices to other name-brands you will find Second Skin's performance is superior, our prices competitive, and customer service is second to none!
