Grippy Mat is perfect in places where ordinary mats slide around or get bunched up and create trip hazards — especially where you have a lot of foot, cart and vehicle 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.
Here are some of the places we’ve seen Grippy Mat work best:
- Lining walkways between work stations
- Traffic lane corridors
- In transition areas between factory and office
- Around all kinds of machines and equipment where people work and walk
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
- Lining toolboxes and bench tops
- In spots where fork trucks are parked
- Under long assembly line conveyors
- Stuck on paint booth walls
- Catching cutting oils behind grinders and lathes
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, low pile carpeting, 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.
