Is the closed cell foam that is placed on top of the dynamit/ silent coat a finished surface? Ie will it put up with the normal wear and tear of normal use, or does it need a final layer, such as carpet or rubber to top it off?

I guess it has to depend on exactly what you get. The stuff I got is an effective noise reducer, but either needs to be somewhere where there will be no 'wear and tear' or would need covered.

I've put it on top of silentcoat inside my doors - only where I could install it relatively easily, and where is wasn't fouling the window mechanism. In this location I'd expect it to be fine by itself.

I have some left over, and when deciding where to use it, if it was in a more 'dynamic' location, it wuld need covered by matting or carpet. Donald

In short, no. Certainly not anywhere where it has regular contact/abrasion from feet, hands, bodies, bags etc. Which really leaves almost no part of a Defender. It’s a foam, with inherent (or lack of) strength and resilience you’d expect. Cover it with carpet, mats or trim/linings. Thumbs Up Monsieur Le Grenadier

I've not been everywhere, but it's on my list.....

Thanks, that’s what I suspected.

United Kingdom 2011 Defender 110 Puma 2.4 USW Zermatt Silver

Just doing my 110 now. Silent Coat covered by 6mm closed cell foam and then on the rear passenger floor and the load area floor I've put 6mm plywood to protect the foam and take any point loads. Over this I'm doing rubber matting rather than carpet. All glued down with waterproof spray glue and the edges sealed with Tiger Seal to help stop water ingress.

For the back passenger area and load area I've used this rubber matting that is near identical to the profile of the land rover produced stuff:

On the front floors, I'm putting silent coat on the floors with a bead of Tiger seal between sheets to seal but no foam existing rubber matting should do the job. For the seat box I've got some 3mm closed cell for the sides as not a lot of space when doors close.

Hope that helps

probably been said, but on the seat box, the carpet sets do not allow for much under neath, i used a totally different product which is only 2mm thick and in places it was tight for the LRI carpet over the top, so if adding closed cell foam just check beforehand.

That's interesting, I used an LRI carpet set for the rear of my 90 and it was huge and I had to trim off loads, and that was including 3mm silent coat and 6mm CCF. To that end I wouldn't touch their carpets again and for the front I have bought genuine ones

I think, to be fair the rear can accommodate a thicker under layer, it was not so much the overall dimension as i had to trim around the perimeter but more where they had precut the seat box corners. I am pleased with the LRI carpet but it is thinner than others i have seen.
