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.

Size is perfect and overall much more substantial, thicker and heavier, than I anticipated.

Great mats
The Silicone Mats are great. I bought 2 and joined them together. Easily cleaned and also protects my work bench and the furniture I repair as well. Very reasonable prices I thought.

Great item
I love this silicone mat. Makes a great work surface for whatever I’m doing. Protects the table/workbench underneath and washes clean easily. Great product, if a bit pricey.

Matthew P on Oct 20, 2019
I think the comment about using waxed paper and taping it down etc and cleaning the semi dried glue I slop all over made me splurge on a more professional look.

All ready have one. Want to cover my workbench with the mat.

Tired of using wax paper and taping the wax paper down and still getting glue on the bench top. This system looks a lot better and I have had great success using the other Rockler gluing tools.

Davis S on Jul 26, 2019
I have the smaller version and it works well - I think I will try using these to cover my table saw and router table when not in use - I had some rust form and have since cleaned it up, but I bet this will be a good habit to get into - plus it will protect my table tops - small investment I figure with coupon and discount for two, an I already know they work well!

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.
Is the mat dishwasher safe?
Andrew R on Nov 23, 2018
BEST ANSWER: I don't know.
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.
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
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.
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.
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 this mat solvent and oil resistant?
Marat Z on Sep 29, 2019
BEST ANSWER: I don't know about oil, stain and glue don't hurt it
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.
Will a diode 5 watt laser cutter harm this mat?
Sam P on Jan 31, 2019
