When you are ready to adhere a strip to your mat, please follow these steps:

  1. Make sure the floor is clean and dry and that the back of your mat is wiped off and free of debris and dirt.
  2. Peel the shiny Mylar off the peel and stick side of the strip. This is the side that adheres to the mat.
  3. Lay the strip on the mat and press it down. The glue is an active glue which means that it becomes more tacky over time, and may not initially appear to be aggressively stuck to your mat. Don’t worry. Within less than 24 hours the strip will be permanently attached.
  4. Once the strip or strips are placed on the mat, lift off the dull outer paper.
  5. Turn the mat over and position it on the floor.
  6. If the strip gets dirty, it can be wiped off with Simple Green or a similar cleanser. The strip will dry quickly and re-gain its tack.
Ways to Prevent Mat Movement

Mats move, but this can be prevented. The amount of movement depends on the type of mat, the amount of foot traffic and the condition of the floor surface in the work environment.

The fact that mats move is a basic rule and can be explained by the principles of physics. The force of a human being moving forward in a walking gait tends to push any uninstalled floor surface forward. However, there are ways to stop or inhibit this movement.

  1. Install your mats. There are some matting products that are designed to be installed. ErgoDeck is an excellent example. Its wide edging has bolt holes to allow the mat to be permanently anchored to the floor.
  1. Buy sponge-backed mats with a higher underside coefficient of friction. This is especially important if your facility has smooth epoxy-covered floors. A natural rubber sponge is the best option in this case. Slip-Resistant Diamond-Plate was designed just for this specific situation. The rubber sponge will move much less than any other because its cell structure is exposed and the compound has a much higher COF.
  1. Tape the mats to the floor with an industrial strength tape. This is a good solution if you cannot tolerate any mat movement. In a high traffic area however, the tape may begin to fray after several months of usage and will need to be replaced.
  1. Adhere the mats to the floor using either a high quality rubber or vinyl glue. This is also an option if you are worried about any mat movement. Contact your local hardware store for the best rubber, vinyl or silicone glue.
