Product Details

Cascade VB-1X(1G) Sprayable Acoustic Damping Compound 1 Gal
When used at equal thickness, VB-1X provides twice the damping qualities of asphalt damping materials! Excellent for damping resonances in metals, fiberglass, plastic and wood over a wide frequency range. Great for vehicle panels and truck shells, it provides additional SPL to a mobile audio system’s output by damping unwanted road noise. It is an air curing, water-based, exterior grade damping paste, which has been engineered specifically for use as an undercoating in various automotive applications and is non-toxic and environmentally safe. This unique combination of silica-mica, ceramics and an advanced chemical binder greatly reduces structural resonance by converting vibration into "viscous" friction or low level heat. Once the purple liquid coating is dry it is a waterproof, very hard film-type abrasion resistant coating, with a black speckled finish. Applications: *RV and vehicular body panels and metal, as well as marine hull, bulkhead and engine compartments. Easily applied with Cascade Audio Engineering’s SG-1 spray gun Properties: *Effective temperature range: 32° to 175° *Weight: 12.9 lbs. per gallon *Available in 1 gallon and 5 gallon containers.

Cascade VB-1X(1G) Sprayable Acoustic Damping Compound 1 Gal
Cascade VB-1X(1G) Sprayable Acoustic Damping Compound 1 Gal is rated 4.4 out of 5 by 5.
Rated 5 out of 5 by from Excellent product, and appears very versitileEasy to use, easy cleanup. And no fumes!Sticks to anything (so far!).Use it indoors with no aware that it takes awhile to dry.After your final coat I would give it a week before installing drivers etc-just to be sure you aren't trapping moisture in your enclosure.I use it mostly for home speaker enclosures.Works well at sealing up these enclosures-vented or sealed, and adds structural stability to MDF and plywood, important with older enclosures.As well as adding some additional damping.It dries rock hard, and provides a great surface to attaching internal damping foam to.Excellent product.A little expensive, but it performs very well-you get what you pay for.I think it would work well for those wanting to reduce horn flare vibrations-metal or plastic, as well as speaker frame/basket dampening.

Rated 5 out of 5 by from just as good as sound coatI use this stuff on everything from driver frames, cabinets, cablesa and connectors. It works great but you do have to do multiple coats which can be tideous.

Rated 4 out of 5 by from Easy and EffectiveI use this for the interior of speaker cabinets, where it is not only a very effective vibration damper, but also dries rock solid and adds structural integrity. As an added bonus, it is water soluble with no evil petroleum smells, so there are no household odor complaints.

Rated 4 out of 5 by from What Noise???Stripped out the car and applied this stuff to every spot of bare painted metal. At first it seemed to be doing nothing as I was checking the resonance of my panels while I was in the process of painting it on and drying. I was beginning to think I wasted 70 bucks on glop. Anyway... 2 days later i took the car out for a spin, and to my excitment, I lost my exhaust, engine, and tire noise. Amazing!!! It has eliminated all those unwanted noises. Another plus is i can eliminate those noises with just a touch of volume on my receiver. Not to mention when you really crank up the tunes, the sound stays so you hear all the music and outsiders wont. The low frequencies much hit harder, and all music within the vehicle just has such nice presence now with peace from mechanical noises. I can talk to who is sitting next to me effortlessly and comfortably. Also this stuff makes the occasional pothole or stick in the middle of the road feel a lot less destructive when hit. Anyone looking to alleviate themselves of external grumbles and engine noise should pick this stuff up!

Rated 4 out of 5 by from easier to use than i thoughtI though it would be a pain to use but it rolled on easy and dried fast for the second and third and forth coat. I only had to wait 2-3 hours to re coat so in between that i would wire and get other things done. I have used mat products before both old asphalt and new butyl and this is much lighter and better IMO it stiffens up the panels and 6 months later through a hot nasty summer is all still in place. thumbs up to this stuff.
