My wife would kill me if I sprayed that on our living room walls.

Don't know about 'sound deadener' but I used to use that Canadian Tire rubberized asphaly spray gunk as an anti-vibration tweak on all sorts of flimsy casings & such.
Seemed to help some.

Since it's designed to flex I don't think it would be terribly effective as a deadener, but I guess it would depend on the application. A good deadener like Dynamat has only limited flexibility.

I sprayed it on my weights (barbell plates) to keep them from making so much noise. Works pretty well with the higher frequencies. The "thunk" is still there, but not the ringing "clang" if that makes sense.
Remember to spray outside wearing a mask. You don't want to coat the inside of your lungs with this stuff.

Inside the doors on my truck.....im hoping that it will add a little weight to the door skins and hopefully stop any rattling that may be happening.

Maybe you should be looking at truck bed liner? Perhaps the rough surface will help as well. Shoot, I'm going to have to try that on my "garage" speakers!

Google Sound Deadener Showdown.

He will get you sorted. I have corresponded by email with him on the specifics of my vehicle and he was super helpful.

On the cheap, duct seal and rope caulk is handy. We used it on car audio installs all the time.

Hope it works better for you than it did on my gutters .
