i got my order of Audio Technix sound deadener in the mail today (thanks Coleman) and i did a little test with it, most of you have seen this test before. the video camera was 4 ft away from the sheet metal and the mic facing towards it. the item i used to hit the metal was a hammer. how did i know i didnt just hit it harder one time or the other you ask? easily. i tied the hammer to a string and measured the height at impact. i then raised it 18" from that point on a swinging motion and let go! like a pendulum. exact amount of force each time striking the metal.
the deadener was placed on a 12" x 12" sheet of metal that was 9/100th of an inch thick, a little thinner then 1/8". then a 6"x6" piece of Audio Technix deadener was applied. i used a heat gun on the metal for 30 seconds and the deadener for 30 seconds, and then rolled onto the sheet metal. i also dropped the sheet metal accidently, then i decided to drop it again with the deadener on it. it sounded like i dropped a piece of mdf. no "ting" what so ever. i am VERY pleased with this purchase and will be purchasing more!
Well i am comparing this deadener to other companies and i wanted to reuse the sheet metal, well after heating the metal and the deadener i quickly realized this is not coming off, a good thing i know haha. but i got a pair of pliers on just the foil and was pulling on it, well the stuff just stretched, the foil didnt come off of the deadener, the deadener didnt come off the metal lol. its in tact in both locations.
Colemans' customer service is remarkable as well, i texted him he gets back to me quickly, i hit him up on fb, hes there, i post in his thread, hes asking how i like my product. he is on top of his product and company- Bobby P.
