 arrow12Silicone Lab Mats

Reusable, reliable, and reversible

These Lab Mats are made from a durable FDA approved silicone material that creates a stain resistant washable working surface to help keep benchtops clean and safe from stains, spills and wear. They will also save you waste and money by eliminating repeated purchases and disposal costs associated with disposable paper mats, making them a more environmentally friendly option. When finished with the mat, easily wipe it with any standard disinfectant or put in a dishwasher, to reuse later.

The mat features a large, anti-skid, working surface which helps keep items in place and prevents the lab mat from sliding out from underneath. The mat's surface is also noise dampening, reducing sound from the vibration of common benchtop equipment. It can be used with items such as centrifuges, vortex mixers, hot plates, stirrers, pipettes and so much more. When using magnetic stirrers, the mat has a designated area with internal metal inserts to keep stir bars from wandering around the working surface. It also features a lip design around the outer edge to help contain spillage that may occur, keeping benchtops safe and clean.

  • Made from FDA food grade silicone
  • Ideal for every type of laboratory and more specialized areas such as cold rooms, clean rooms, sterile suites and areas where high sterility is a requirement
  • Protect countertops from hot items up to 200°C (392°F)
