Clean room mats are tacky mats that help trap impurities in areas that require stringent dust and dirt control. Our clean room sticky mats feature a tacky surface which removes dirt and dust from shoes before they can contaminate a "clean room."
• Once the top layer is dirty, simply remove and discard.
• Clean room sticky mats offer economical dust and dirt control on top of both low-profile carpet and hard floor surfaces.
• These clean room tacky mats are ideal for hospital, laboratory, construction and even home use.
• Each Pad: Tacky polyethylene surface; 1/8" thick.
• 4 pads of 30 sheets (thus 120 sheets total per case).
• NOTE: Individual frames and frame/pad combos are also available. A frame is only necessary when the 30-sheet pad will not be completely used in one location. For instance, frames are ideal for contractors who only use a few sheets at a given location before moving on to the next job site. Frames have a non-skid backing which keeps them firmly in place regardless of the type of floor they rest on.

It's easy! Simply remove the protective film on the underside of any of the four pads that came in the box. Place the bottom of the sticky mat on a clean, dry floor. Firmly press the mat down to ensure strong adhesion. Next, remove the clear protective film on the top of the mat. This is the clear sheet above the pad with the number 30 in the corner. Now the sticky mats are ready to use!
Each order contains four pads (aka packs) of sticky mats. Each of these pads contains 30 individual sheets. Thus, there are 120 sheets per box.
No, a frame is not necessary for use with sticky mats. A frame is a useful accessory but only in certain scenarios. Namely, a sticky mat frame is helpful when not all 30 sheets are used in one location. For instance, a contractor may need sticky mats for a job at a particular location but will only be there for a few days and not use all 30 sheets. Instead of sticking the entire pad to the floor and then trying to remove the pad and reuse it later, a frame allows the sticky mats to be easily transportable while still staying firmly in place on the floor. In environments where all 30 sheets would be used, a frame would not be necessary since the sticky mats can simply be stuck directly to the floor.
Although it's ideal to adhere sticky mats to a hard floor surface (like wood, vinyl, tile, marble, concrete, etc.), the sticky mat pad can also stick to carpet. The mats will adhere better to a thinner and/or more tightly bound carpet compared to a thick, plush type carpeting. Another option, when faced with a carpeted floor, is to apply the sticky mats to a frame that will hug the floor and allow the sticky mats to properly stay in place.
Great question. Although the sticky mats have an adhesive surface to remove the dust, debris and impurities from the bottom of shoes; small feet, wheelchairs and walkers (and even animal paws) will not get stuck on the mats nor will they hurt them or cause any discomfort while traversing across the sticky surface.
These laboratory-grade Clean Room Sticky Mats are manufactured from polyethylene and are not harmful nor contain any toxic components (and are thus safe to use around kids, in schools, in the laboratory and at home). These sticky mats do not off-gas. Technically speaking, the Adhesive Power is 160g / 25mm (+/- 10). Generically speaking, the mats are tacky enough for the adhesive to pull off dirt, dust and debris from shoes and boots while walking across the mat but not so strong that anyone or anything would get stuck to the surface.
You can certainly use our sticky mats underneath and around a cat's litter box to trap any litter, clay, sawdust, etc. that you use. These sticky mats will help contain the mess and prevent you from constantly cleaning up. Cats will not be harmed by walking across these mats and should get used to the tacky surface quite quickly.
Our Clean Room Sticky Mats are designed to firmly stick to the floor yet be easily removable when lifted up. These mats won't damage the floor below (whether it's carpet or a hard surface) and are designed to not leave any residue behind.
No worries! Simply peel the mat slowly off the floor making sure that you're pulling from the bottom-most layer. Once removed, just double check that there's no dirt or debris on the floor and that it's clean and dry before reinstalling. Next remove the protective clear film from the bottom of the mat. (The bottom of the mat will not show any numbers while the top of the mat shows the number 30 in the corner and works its way down all the way to number one, which would be the last sheet). After the protective film is removed from the back, simply place the mat on the floor with the underside firmly pressed down to the ground. Walk across the topside of the mat to ensure a strong adhesion between the mat and the floor. (You may need to discard the top layer after installing since it may be dirty but now the product is ready to use.)
