Wrestling Mats: Care
care and maintenance at time of receipt of your wrestling mat, during usage,
and while storing it will greatly increase the life of your wrestling mats.
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.
first use, the white powder on the mat (this is wheat starch - used
as a protective coating during shipment) should be removed from the
All vinyl coated new wrestling mats (new and remnant wrestling mats) will initially experience shrinkage of up to 5-7% from time of production. When producing the mats we will make them slightly oversized to account for this shrinkage. The majority of the shrinkage occurs during the curing period (the first 2 weeks after production - prior to delivery). Since we cure the mats for you, there will only be a 2-3% remaining shrinkage that will occur over the next 6-12 months. After this period of time, the wrestling mats will no longer shrink. Therefore, please allow for a total tolerance/variance of plus/minus 3%.
CURING - we do this for you!
The special, high
quality coating that covers the surface of your new, remnant or reconditioned
mat may give off a characteristic odor for up to two weeks 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.
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 loosely. 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 and alternate rolling
the mat from top and bottom sides. 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.
