Nickoo : Rattling is best rectified at source. So identify the source of the rattle and treat it. Thats it..

If you facing rattling, like "a couple of small stones in a plastic bottle" type, have someone open the door pads and tape the lose cables and wires down. Also check if there is any play in the window winding mechanism and the latch / lock mechanism.

Once you have got these problems sorted out, you can invest in damping - which will reduce / remove the annoying buzzes, the squeaks and the trrrr's.
Hey DerAlte...thanks for the advice...but i have got the doors checked twice ...there isnt any kind of noise that you are reffering to...its more like the whole door vibrating...even though i have the components installed on the rings...i talked to my installer and he says that we need to dampen the doors...so i tried for dynamat...but thts pretty expensive affair...and then i came across Noise Kill(courtesy TBHP..)..and now i need someone to help me out ...tell me the place in and around Delhi from where i can get the stuff...
Anyone??

Aluminum foil is quite thin, one will need thicker sheet which will have weight.

Perhaps LBM can explain better what he meant, but the alu foil on the conventional damping sheets like Noise Kill, Dynamat etc. would be more for aesthetics and protecting the damping material itself from environmental deterioration, than for any practical contribution to damping. May not be, also - only someone with a mech lab can figure out.

Ditto for the checkerboard pattern too.

Aluminum is too light to serve any damping. It might however serve as a moisture wall. the checkerboard pattern might serve to stiffen the aluminum (like corrugations do).

True.

The other reason for the Al is to keep it in a sheet form and keep it from lumping into a messy goo. This happens with the butyl ones. If you observe, most of the stiff asphalt based ones dont have this constraining layer or use some milder material like polythene.

XPE strips are available, looks like foam tape. I think this is pretty much the same thing. But they are very light weight, and wont do much in terms of damping.

Gurus please correct me if im wrong.

Guys I have seen Shrivz get a neat damping done with some alternative 2-sided glue rubber, he got form his tyre wallah!


Hmm, he should be the best one to say where he got it form? what it was made off? what brand etc etc?
