Sound deadening and floor insulation
 
I put a video together on how we did the floor insulation and sound deadening on the floor of our 2019 4x4 crew. Weíre going to try to do a step by step videos for each part of our build. Next is Agile off-road no rub fenders.

Interesting 3M material which retains insulation value after being compressed, what is the 3M name / part number?

I bought it through Adventure Wagon

It is Thinsulate. I insulated my van with Thinsulate in 2013 and paid a lot of attention not to compress it. I donít understand how compressed Thinsulate can retain insulation quality, perhaps it is a matter degree. Fully compressed Thinsulate will be as good of an insulator as a sheet of polyolefin with some polyester mix solid material, not very good.

Great work! I am going to be doing that project sometime in the spring. How much of an improvement did you see? And did you guys glue down the thinsulate?

Saw a huge improvement in road noise. Hard to tell on the insulation being that we havenít slept in it and the rest of the van is not insulated. Yes we used spray glue to put down the insulation.

Nice work and well done on the video! :thumbup:

How long did the whole process take to complete? Do you plan on doing the same to the rest of the van?

The whole process took about 4 hours. We are going to do the Adventure Wagon interior kit, so yes the whole van will have sound deadening and insulation.

thanks for write up and vid!

Any updates on your thoughts of the Noico sound deadening material? Meet expectations?
How many boxes did your use to cover the entire van?
