Sink Coating?

Something fell off the bottom of my (relatively) newly installed sink. I think it's a coating to dampen noise (well, that's what Google says it is). My questions are: 1) Why did this fall off? Is it just something that happens or is there something I have done to cause this? 2) I recently installed a new disposer so, see # 1. 3) Should I replace this and what happens if I do not? 4) Any tips on how to replace it?

The pictures don't seem too helpful :-).

As always, thanks for the guidance.

It's strictly for noise deadening.
You could reattach it with contact cement.
You put a thin coat on the sink and a thin coat on the pad. Let it dry to the touch.
Then stick it in place. It won't come off again.
