Rockler Silicone Project Mat XL

The Rockler Silicone Project Mat XL is made from easy-to-clean silicone so wet glue rinses off and dried glue peels off. This larger size measures 23-1/2''W x 30-1/4''L—ideal for use with standard workbenches. In addition, the interlocking design lets you chain together as many as you need end-to-end to cover your bench. Use anywhere you want to protect your work surface or your project, whether in the garage, shop or even on the dining room table. Since the mat is heat-resistant, it also works well as a protective barrier for hot glue guns. The material is soft, and one side has a textured surface to trap debris that could scratch or dent your project. The non-textured depressions at the front help to keep screws and fasteners from rolling off the bench.

Features:

  • 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
  • Shallow trays at front help to keep screws and fasteners from rolling off bench
  • Also works great as a sanding pad to protect your workpiece and hold it in place

Note: Not for use with CA glue. Seam between multiple mats resists leakage, but is not leak-proof.

One of the best things I've purchased
This thing is GREAT. Cleans up super easy; quite large and up for any task. One negative - attracts dust and dirt like nobody's business, but still worth it!

Excellent Mat. I use it on my everyday workbench, because just about anything will either rinse or peel off. Just the best.

Works as described
I did a test "spill" of glue, and it peeled right off when dry, exactly as shown in the promo video.

Perfect solution for keeping your assembly table free of glue drops. You will need to wash it with soap and water every once in a while to get the sawdust off.

Silicone Project Mat (large)
Worked exactly as advertised. Very pleased with my acquisition. Glad I got the larger size.

Great product.
I bought these mats because I did not enjoy cleaning up the residual glue on my work surface. I have been using heavy paper as a glue service, but these are much more convenient. My wife was also glad that I bought them as she can see uses for them in her projects.

Just what I needed
I was looking for protection to my new wood work table and this fits just right, It fits half my table, so just maybe I won't mess it up like I did the last table.

I’ve seen a lot of woodworkers swear by these and it’d be nice to not have to tape down paper every time I do a glue up or mess with epoxy.

I do wood turning and have fine sanding and polishing to do on my projects. I trust the mats will protect them from scratches or abrasions from the hard surface of my work bench.
William H on Apr 27, 2019
I have the silcone applicators and find the easy clean-up a real plus. The mat will be a great addition and make glue spills, drips, etc., much easier to clean up. Plus the glued parts won't stick to the mat the way they do to a wood surface, newspaper, or plastic drop cloths.

Will wood stain stain this mat?
Larry N on Oct 7, 2018
BEST ANSWER: The mat was designed mostly for glues. Stains and paint should wipe up easily, but could potentially leave behind a stain if left to dry. I would recommend testing on a small inconspicuous area before staining or painting.
Will resin also peel off this mat?
Jane F on Oct 17, 2018
BEST ANSWER: Is it epoxy resin? I turn the mats I have over when glueing anything to the smooth surface and peels right off. If the harder and resin are mixed, epoxy will bound to anything. When working with epoxy I use wax paper.
Is the mat dishwasher safe?
Andrew R on Nov 23, 2018
I need a 23-1/2 square to fit my bench. Can I cut this to fit?
Darrell F on Nov 18, 2018
BEST ANSWER: Absolutely. Scissors or a utility knife would easily be able to cut it.
Does it lay flat if you have the smooth side up?
Elena on Jan 19, 2019
BEST ANSWER: The mat lays flat with either the smooth or embossed side up. //m
Is it chemicle resistant for mechanics bench?
Kevi on Feb 4, 2019
BEST ANSWER: I have used my mats for my gunsmith's bench rather than in conjunction with a mechanic's bench. Mine handles the rather harsh chemicals used for metal and wood work very well indeed. I should think it would your needs.
How well does it work with CA glue? Does CA easily come off?
Scott on Dec 16, 2018
BEST ANSWER: If you get CA glue on the nubby side of the mat, it can difficult to remove. If it gets on the smooth and it is wiped off quickly and thoroughly, I don't see any residue. I have not left any CA glue on the mat for more than a couple of minutes so I don't know if there would be damage. I've never glued anything to the mat with CA glue. I use CA solvent to get the stuff off my fingers and I'd guess it would work on the mat. That's just a guess.
what are the dimensions of this mat? I need a rather large one that will still fit on my work bench if not fit on a designated area on shop floor for my larger sized projects.
Roger H on Jun 14, 2019
BEST ANSWER: 23-1/2''W x 30-1/4''L
