Adhesive for sound deadening?

Hey guys....getting ready to do the sound-deadener in my car this weekend. The rolls I have, have been sitting around for a number of years and they have lost their tackiness. I figure there still has to be a way to apply the sheets with maybe a spray adhesive or brush-on adhesive? I don't want it to be permanent just enough to have a secure hold and be able to peel off should I ever need to. What products do you guys recommend? Thanks.

Re: Adhesive for sound deadening?

Are you just doing floors and doors? I would think hitting it with a heat gun would bring back some of the tackiness. Just about everything is going to be held in place by a seat or a door panel. If it is not holding in place, maybe try a little bit of the upholstery spray on glue. Also use some painters tape to hold it in place while you are working on it.

3M Super 77 spray can

as mentioned a heat gun may "wake up" the adhesive but if you feel you need something extra the 3M stuff works great

I would definitely recommend using a strong spray glue if you're planning on using it in the doors. Everytime you shut the door it'll want to fall off. Ask me how I know. If using it under the carpet the juting and carpet will hold it in place. As you drive your car on hot days and heat from under the car permeates up through I would think the glue would start activating. I've had fresh stuff fall off vertical surfaces when not applied properly.

Aside from the 3M stuff... the company that makes that Magic Sealer stuff you see on TV 24/7 now has a spray on adhesive IIRC.

Heat gun. Apply as you normally would then hit with heat gone and a roller. It will stick well without adding another adhesive

I did not want permanent or the mess of scrapping off old glue so I used carpet tape. I did not do vertical (doors), just the floor and center hump so not sure in the long run how it would hold but it has been about seven years and tape still holding.
