SPM Frequently Asked Questions

  • What's SPM? Sound Proofing peel and stick tiles designed specifically for sailboat auxiliary diesel engine compartments. Great for Gen-Sets too!

  • What's involved? Have you ever put peel and stick tiles down on a kitchen floor? That's what's involved. Even a complete numbskull can soundproof his engine compartment with SPM in an afternoon. You won't believe your ears, or the tachometer for that matter. See our EASY INSTALLATION PAGE.

  • Why does it work so well? It's simple. We designed a product using the latest technology developed for the trucking industry and modified it to suit the marine environment. The next step was to make it user friendly and easy to install in a cruising sailboat. That's where the one-foot tile squares and the peel and stick idea came in.

  • How does it work? A hard 1/8" dense polymer barrier disrupts loud engine noises canceling some and reflecting some more. A 1" limp sound absorbing semi-closed cell foam absorbs the rest. The inside surface is laminated with a tough & durable finish. It's easy to clean and can take considerable abuse. The outside surface is coated with a very aggressive peel and stick adhesive designed for fiberglass, wood or metal. Once it's stuck on your grease-free surface it's on for good.

  • Why is SPM soundproofing better then any other marine soundproofing? SPM is one whole heck of a lot easier to install. There is virtually no cutting waste You can buy what you need with our convenient sizes. If you make a mistake you didn't ruin the job. You can probably use that tile elsewhere. You don't have to do the whole job in one shot. Do the loudest most annoying areas first. SPM's hard but flexible surface holds up extremely well to engine room abuse and will not tear SPM sound proofing tiles are "quiet as all get out" (up to 90% noise reduction throughout the diesel engine range) Each tile has a mass of 1.44 pounds and is 1.125" thick SPM is made of the highest quality materials available at any price

  • Can I cut SPM tiles? Yes, SPM cuts with a good scissors or a utility knife. Mark, check your fit, peel & stick. You'll be done in no time

  • Does SPM bend around curved surfaces? Yes, SPM tiles are flexible around curves to a radius of 3"

  • What about overhead areas, do I need to mechanically fasten the tiles? Not usually. SPM uses an extremely aggressive adhesive that has stood the test of time under-hood in cross-country trucks. Make sure your surface is clean and in good condition. If not use #8 1.1/4 stainless screws if there is a problem area. Since SPM is a hard surface you can screw into it if need be without special "hangers".

  • Is it possible to order SPM tiles individually? Yes, start with one of our kits. If you need more just drop us an e-mail. We will ship the exact number of additional tiles at the same price / tile.

  • Do I need to use tape? Do I need to tape the seams? No tape is needed since SPM tiles are cut exactly square. The seams butt up against each other and look professional.
