Spray-on Insulation vs. Mat Insulation

Never cut and paste mat products again! With LizardSkin Ceramic InsulationSound Control and TopCoat, there are NO GAPS, NO SEAMS, NO SCISSORS AND NO SWEAT! LizardSkin's easy-to-apply, spray-on application is environmentally safe and can be cleaned with soap and water. It can also be sanded and painted to your desired body color.

Traditional mat products are known for being more labor-intensive and costly than spray-on insulation. A typical mat product installation can take 35+ hours, whereas spray-on insulation requires only 8 hours. With LizardSkin, there is no need to measure and cut insulation precisely to size, and there is no risk of cutting your hands and bleeding.

For a list of all spray-on automotive insulation benefits compared to mat products, see our chart below. All LizardSkin products can be purchased via our online store.
