Arrow Gt Mat Review

Just got my GT MAT delivered today. I ordered it on 11-12-12 and got it today 11-16-12.



i bought the 10sq ft of coverage 50mil kit for $24.99 SHIPPED
GTMAT Automotive Sound Deadener 10 sq ft 50 MIL & 80MIL installation pack




whats in the box?

1-3ftx3ft roll of 50mil GT Mat (mine actually measured more like 3ftx3.5ft)
1-roller
1-GT Mat tape measure
1-free sample piece of 80mil
Instructions, 2 GTMAT stickers and $5off next purchase coupons

Upon opening the box i noticed how much it DIDNT smell like tar/asphalt. A definite plus when installing inside of vehicle. There is slight odor but nothing to worry about. I think its just from being locked up in the box for 4 days.

I got the 50mil cause it was cheaper and it would be easier imo to use. Easier to put behind panels and easier to mold.

in the pics on the website the 50mil seemed like more than enough but in person not so much. Still not disappointed with the product yet. They included a free sample of their 80mil. see the comparo below


80mil on top
50mil below


I plan to do my trunk floor, trunk lid and under the hood. I will be cutting the roll into pieces to make it go farther and will do some other areas with any left over pieces. All that coverage for $25 shipped($40 shipped if u choose the 80mil) is not bad at all imo I will be buying another set in the near future to do the interior floor and doors


will be back with review of installation when its done

no its not for any sounds like that. its to cut down on road/engine noise and give the car a more quality feel. thats why i went the cheaper route. its not for acoustic improvements

is this stuff similar in price to second skin?? I originally had dynamat for certain sections of my trunk, then went to Raamat because it was a lot cheaper than Dynamat. I noticed that with Second Skin, there's thicker layers to be on top of the dynamat and raamat.

@petty...sound deadening material is mostly for car audio purposes, but it's also to cut out the road noise. If you put this stuff on your doors, you'll DEFINITELY notice a difference when just cruising around

Take a look at Vital's sound deadening job. He literally did everything except for the underside of the hood!! And I think he did like dual layers!

if you are looking for a 10sqft coverage kit, GT mat 50mil is way cheaper and a lil thicker than second skin damplifier(its only 40mil). and like $5 cheaper and twice as thick if you get GTmats 80mil. the second skin seems more like a foam based product though and may better for sound deadening

i think second skin is more expensive because it doesn't add as much weight to your vehicle as gtmat does.
