What is the purpose of a dab mat?

A dab mat is also known as a dab pad. Here is the multitude of purposes and functions it provides:

  • Cleanliness: One of its main functions is to keep your surface clean. As we all know, concentrate, water, and debris can fall off nails or dab tools onto your surface which can be painful, but not anymore.
  • Heat Resistant: One of the main reasons dab mats are made of silicone is because silicone can withstand extreme heat. This eliminates any worries you would have about your rig getting too hot or damaging the surface if you were to accidentally drop very hot concentrates on it. Silicone can still melt, typically around 840 degrees Fahrenheit.
  • Stability: Being that dab mats are made of silicone, they provide a non-slip surface for your rig, preventing it from tipping over spiling and possibly breaking.
  • Easy to clean: The dab mat’s silicone non-porous and smooth material makes it really simple to clean. You can use traditional concentrate cleaners like Formula 710 or just run it under extremely hot water with a little bit of isopropyl alcohol. You can even throw it into the dishwasher.
  • Designates an area: Dab mats help designate an area for your accessories, keeping everything nice and neat in one area.
