Product Spotlight: Nitrile Rubber Backing

 In Commercial Mats

The nitrile rubber backing is the strongest rubber backing that has ever been manufactured for launderable mats. Health Mats provides a 90 mil rubber backing throughout entire mat. The backing can help prevent slips and falls because of the heavy duty features that allow the mat to stay in place. For interior entrances, this mat is ideal as it safeguards against accidents.

Mat backing began with vinyl and evolved to rubber. Both vinyl and rubber worked well, but were not resistant to chemicals such as grease, oil, and gasoline. The nitrile rubber compound eliminated reactions to chemicals and contributed to the longevity of the mat.

Health Mats creates curved corner mats with 90 mil nitrile rubber backing to dramatically improve the performance of the mat. The curve corners are aesthetically pleasing as well.

In partnership with the manufacturer, these mats can be recycled to be used as boiler fuel. The lifecycle of nitrile rubber contributes to green practices in the floor mat industry.
