"Peel & Seal® is perfect for hundreds of uses ranging from full-roof applications to patching gutters and vent pipes. Fully pliable and providing a secure seal at edges, corners and over gaps, it is ideal for roof areas that are often difficult to waterproof, including locations where ducts, vents, chimneys, or air conditioning units" per their site!



If you want good sound deadening, buy good sound deadening, not roofing materials....

Of course it doesn't have a rating for it.. They are not marketing it for that purpose. But I can tell you from both using it in a car years ago and seeing others who have done it that it works.
You can believe me or not, but not everyone wants to drop a hundred bucks for a tiny bit of soundproofing for a door kit. How many things are used off label? ****, do you know how many drugs are used for things other than what they are labelled for? I went on a work trip a few years ago and one of the first things that was given to us after we got off the plane was viagra because of thin air!
