Rockler Silicone Project Mat

Item #
96% of 100

Our protective project mat is made from heat-resistant, easy-to-clean silicone, meaning wet glue rinses off and dried glue peels off. Use it anywhere you want to protect your work surface or your project, whether in the garage, shop or on the dining room table. Since it's heat-resistant, it works well as a protective barrier for hot glue guns. The material is very soft, and one side has a textured surface to trap debris that could scratch or dent your project. Also great for craft projects, art projects and scrapbooking.


  • Silicone material is heat-resistant and easily cleaned—dried glue peels right off
  • Rolls up for easy storage
  • No memory—always lays flat when in use
  • Ribbed pattern on one face helps protect your project by trapping abrasive debris; opposite face is smooth
  • (1) Rockler Silicone Project Mat

    Silicone mat
    Before I had a chance to use it, a friend hijacked it for her scrap booking. Ordered two more. Used on one small project. Smaller pieces moved a bit when using palm sander. Drops of glue cleaned up easily as did debris. Kept mess off workbench. Intend to use it often.

    Perfect for glue up
    Started a segmented turning project and was given this mat. My 196 piece project allowed me to experience the quality of this product. Dried glue comes right off and clean up is easy.

    everything I wanted it to do
    The mat works the same as the glue holding trays. Nothing sticks to it and it protects my table surfaces. I have bought 3 and will probably buy more.

    What temperature is it heat-resistant to?
    Mr. B on May 8, 2016
    Does CA glue stick to it?
    Bill Conway on Jan 3, 2016
    BEST ANSWER: I use ca glue to put brass tubes in my pen blanks. CA glue peels right off.
    Can it be used as a cutting mat using xacto knives on wood?
    Gerard O on Apr 22, 2016
    BEST ANSWER: No you shouldn't as it would destroy the mat! Mat is only made of silicone and you can cut it! I certainly wouldn't do it! There are mats available for people who sew that are made for cutting. I'd get one of those if you need to cut something.
    would polyurethane peel off it? Or would that ruin it? I need a surface to spray small items.
    Sheri C on Feb 10, 2018
    BEST ANSWER: I have used gorilla glue, which is polyurethane based on this mat many times. Once fully cured, the polyurethane glues squeeze out will effectively pop off the matt. Just roll & shake the mat a few times.
    Is the surface grippy? Can it be used at a sharpening station so water stones don't slip around?
    JOE Z on Sep 17, 2017
    BEST ANSWER: Funny you should ask. I just used my silicone project mat yesterday for sharpening with both 3x8 diamond plates and a waterstone and had no slippage
    Is it non-slip so it can it be used as a pad for routing?
    Colorado66 on Jan 3, 2016
    BEST ANSWER: It is non-slip. In fact, I have used this pad with my router and it held the piece well.
    Can it be cut up and used for push blocks?+ Is it flat on one side and dimpled on the other?
    Bob007 on Sep 2, 2017
    BEST ANSWER: I don't know if that would work. You'd need a completely flat surface to glue it to whatever you use for the push blocks. This has ridges! I would use sandpaper to glue onto a substrate to make your push blocks.
    Does paint stick to this mat?
    Mrjmc74 on May 23, 2016
    BEST ANSWER: So far nothing has been able to stick to mine, including paint and adhesives.
    Is it food-safe, e.g. for use as a baking sheet?
    dick v on Jan 3, 2016
    BEST ANSWER: Not intended for baking. Soft silicone construction is meant to protect table top while working on an item or to prevent a workpiece from slipping, such as while you sand it.
    Is this lacquer safe?
    Drew W on Sep 15, 2018
    BEST ANSWER: I can see no reason why it should not be lacquer safe. Solvents, paints and lubricants don’t have any lasting effect. Recommend you test on a small area of the smooth side to be sure.
    Will cured epoxy peel off?
    Billy T on Apr 22, 2017
    BEST ANSWER: I used a two-part epoxy last year and some of it spilled onto my Silicon mat. I didn't clean it up until it had hardened. It lifted right off with tweezers.
    I see that some people have used this to hold sharpening stones in place without slipping around. But does the messy black swarf that is created from sharpening clean off or does it stain the mat?
    Gary B on Feb 6, 2018
    BEST ANSWER: Rinses right off.
    RAPHAEL R on Nov 24, 2017
