Grippy Absorbent Mat is perfect in places where ordinary mats slide around or get bunched up and create trip hazards — especially in industrial areas with foot or cart traffic. Because if your mats slide out of position, they won’t do much good where you’re trying to catch leaks, drips and spills. Grippy Absorbent Mat protects your surfaces and keeps your floors dry and slip-free while providing the durability and absorbency you and your workers depend on.
Here are some of the places we’ve seen Grippy Absorbent Mat work best:
- Lining areas around workstations
- Catching liquids around machines and equipment where people work and walk
- Lining work surfaces
- Any industrial area where absorbent mats used to catch leaks and drips are becoming a trip hazard
In areas where your Grippy Mat needs to stand up to heavy foot traffic or equipment driveovers, we recommend our Grippy Floor Mat or Grippy Carpeted Entrance Mat — they’re built to withstand lots of traffic long-term, while absorbing liquids to keep floors dry and safe.
Any surface that needs protection from liquid is a good candidate for Grippy Mat. Here are some places where you can stick it: concrete, sealed concrete, epoxy floors, tile, stainless steel, powder-coated painted surfaces, sealed wood and metal workbenches.
Grippy Mat is the right choice for a wide variety of applications, but there are some surfaces you may want to avoid, including areas that have been recently repainted or where the paint is peeling, teak wood, highly waxed linoleum floors and finished wood floors. This is because our standard tack formulation for industrial use may be too strong and could affect the finish on a “sensitive” floor.
The right floor prep is important. If you’re thinking about using Grippy Mat where the surface has been greasy or oily, we recommend that you thoroughly clean the area before putting it down. Certain cleaning or polishing products can also interfere with Grippy Mat adhesion, so we recommend cleaning the surface with a solvent like MEK, heptane or lacquer thinner to completely remove any residue.
We’re also amazed by all the creative ways customers use Grippy Mat:
- Under lifts in automotive garages
- In loading dock areas where crosswinds blow mats away
- In spots where fork trucks are parked
- Under long assembly line conveyors
- Catching cutting oils behind grinders and lathes
