LiteWeight Wrestling Mats: Care Instructions
care and maintenance at time of receipt of your lightweight wrestling mats, during usage,
and while storing it will greatly increase the life of your mat.
If you receive your mats in cold weather, DO NOT unroll them until
to room temperature (about 70 degrees) or higher or for a period of
about 24 hours. Forcing
a mat to unroll while it is cold could result in permanent damage to
the foam and coating.
UNROLLING & ROLLING
rolled with the vinyl surface inward - Always roll and unroll
the mats in this way. Forcing the mat to roll in the opposite
direction will damage the mat foam and vinyl surface). Before re-rolling the mat, always inspect, clean and dry the mat before storing.
The special, high
quality coating that covers the surface of your LiteWeight
mat may give off a characteristic odor for 1-2 days after it
is unwrapped from the shipping plastic wrap. This odor is a normal
necessary part of the curing process. It will diminish as
the curing process completes and will ultimately completely dissipate.
Anyone who feels that they are especially sensitive
to odors should avoid the mat for this period of time. To complete this curing process, simply place the mat
a well ventilated area and lay flat for 1-2 days, or until smell has dissipated.
mat should be used at room
temperature (approx. 70 degrees)
to maximize performance (keeping in mind that heat rises and the
floor will be cooler). At 55 degrees, though not frozen, the impact protective properties
will be greatly diminished.
If your mat cannot
be stored flat, roll it up, strap it using the included strap, and stand it upright. Never use chains, ropes, or wires
to hold the mats.
store mat on transporters or set equipment on mat, such as plastic chairs,
etc. as anything set on the mat will make a permanent impression
on the wrestling mat. To
reduce wrinkles, roll your mat from opposite ends. Never leave your mats stored on
mat transporters; it will create deep depressions. The
life of the mat will be increased if it is stored flat, though that
is not always an option.
