Default Dynamat alternative?

Is there a cheaper Dynamat alternative available locally? I'm looking for a sound deadner to use on the doors and the entire floor of the car to cut vibrations and road noises. I need the self sticking type i need. Any idea which brand and where to look for? Price per square foot would also be helpful.

Thanks.

What's the size of the sheets? Isn't there a cheaper alternative available. I want to cover the floor section of the car completely, then the door and maybe under the hood, mainly to improve upon NVH levels.

Is there any option other than the self sticking sheets to apply to the floor section. I want something that'll stick properly to the floor (i don't want it to come off for any reason). On second thought it's okay if it's not self sticking. Help me with the options please.

Thanks.

I used to go hiking and trekking quite often a while back. During those trips I would use a rubber mat to put my sleeping bag on. This would provide quite a bit of insulation, especially in sub zero temperatures. Its made of tough rubberised foam and a coating of industrial strength adhesive (or your regular fevicol) should be enough to stick it on to whatever surface you'd like to dampen.

Its much cheaper than any of the specialised branded options. A 6x3 sheet costs about Rs 150-200

Problem is, I have no idea where to get the said sheets. I'd know where to get them in Calcutta (where I grew up) but apart from there, no clue. Maybe at hardware shops?

Dude very simple, go to a TATA service station, and get the Wurth underbody treatment done. It should serve your purpose.

If you wish to attack the problem in a more aggressive manner, for the underbody I'd suggest a spray on damper or sludge damper. These would give you much better results than the sheets, however might work out slightly more expensive.

I've seen Wurth sheets peeling off after a while. I've installed Scosche Accumat on my Fiesta and it is doing a really good job. I used about about 3 sheets for my boot and front door and with each sheet costing 2000 Rs, it totaled up to 6500 Rs including installation.
