But Magneto's powers cover all metal, not specifically magnetic metals. I just think it was a little bit of a mistake. I understand that music was very fitting for the scene, but it irked me a bit.

I got a shirt at our yearly vendor show a few years ago from Shure that says, "My earphones cost more than your iPod". Great reactions to that shirt.

It depends what you use it for.  You sure don't need to cover every last metal surface with it.  I'm not familiar with those brand names but anything that's liquid is can't by itself be constrained layer damping (i.e. an entirely different product) which is what Dynamat Xtreme is supposed to be regardless of how its marketed or how many people cover their entire cars with multiple layers of it to little extra effect than reducing their fuel economy and quarter mile time.

 

Are any of those two layer constrained layer damping materials or do you put some type of foil or something over the liquid before it dries?
