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.

This is a durable and practical buy. It’s what it is advertised as. Only has a few weeks so longevity is something I can’t comment on.

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.
Allen P on Apr 21, 2019
I'm tired of having to work to keep glue off my workbench, and two of these, chained together, almost perfectly cover my bench top. Hope they work well.

Since the glue brushes and tray clean up so easily I know the mat will not only protect my work bench bu will also clean up as well. Plus this mat will hold the small part more readily than the other non slip mats, and the small parts will not get hung up in the gaps of other mats.
James H. S on Jan 16, 2019
Great protection for project and work surface, look more durable then previous pads.

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

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.
