LizardSkin Product Overview


Marx Henry of LizardSkin takes some time to talk about the many uses of LizardSkin Sound Control and Thermal Insulation.

LizardSkin is a great product that is able to be applied to just about any body panel with additional benefits. Take for instance, the large external fenders of your 1930’s to 1950’s classic cars. Rocks being picked up and thrown against the underside of those fenders can cause the paint to “star” and crack on the opposite side. With LizardSkin applied to the underside, this can be reduced or even eliminated entirely.

Being water based, the LizardSkin product is non-toxic, contains no VOC’s (Volatile Organic Compounds), and is a Class A fire rated substance. Class A fire rated products are non-combustible. Essentially, LizardSkin Sound Control is designed to go anywhere you have noise, rattles, or anything of that nature, without any fear of fire hazard.

Marx then talks a bit about the proper application of the LizardSkin Sound Control, and shows the small depth gauge that comes with the spray gun kit used for the application. He also mentions that you have the ability to paint over the LizardSkin, by using a high build polyurethane primer and then block sanding it smooth. Marx also mentions that the Lizard Skin has a 15% flexibility built into it. With the large amount of plastic and fiberglass cars on the road today, the paint has to be able to flex with the body of the vehicle, and LizardSkin is no different.

Marx also brought out some of the LizardSkin Ceramic Insulation. It creates a thermal barrier, reflecting heat out of the vehicle. The LizardSkin Ceramic Insulation is designed to be applied directly on top of the the Sound Control for an added layer of insulation. The only thing you need to do is wait 24 hours in between applications to allow the LizardSkin Sound Control to cure before following it up with the Ceramic Insulation.

There are multiple applications for the LizardSkin products, from garage doors, to the aluminum toolboxes that you see in the back of pickup trucks. To browse the full line of Lizard Skin products available at Speedway Motors, click here.
