What is Nitrile rubber?

Nitrile Rubber is not a natural product, it is a synthetic rubber polymer. Nitrile Rubber is generally resistant to animal fats, oils, fuel and other chemicals. It is used in the automotive industry as fuel hoses, oil handling hoses, grommets and seals. This stuff has to be tough! It can with stand temperatures of -40 to +108 celcious. A large use for Nitrile material is the use in the manufacturing of gloves (they can be nine times more puncture resistant with Nitrile). Floor mats and matting is another use (anti fatigue mats, kitchen matting, and in industrial areas with oil and grease). Nitrile rubber is more resistant than the natural rubber.

Are all Kitchen floor mats the same?
No, the more Nitrile in the product the more it will stand up to all the grease and oils.

Be very careful when you read about any kitchen mat, some will state grease resistant, this only means that they will resist the grease. Some will go as far to say their mats are grease proof, this can be better than resistant, however it does not mean its grease proof. Again, be careful what is claimed in the advertising. Make sure you know what the Nitrile count really is, this is the only way to really know how much Nitrile is in the mat. The more Nitrile, the better it will handle grease and animal fats.

I found a great new kitchen matting! Not only is it 100% Nitrile, it is thinner for more flexibility and has great traction or anti slip. The slip resistance not only comes from the material that it is made from but also from the design. This mat called the Safe Flow Plus has both 100 percent Nitrile rubber but also a great design, its soft yet tough. Soft for comfort as well as for safe traction and the toughness of Nitrile to last and stand up to chemicals. It also comes with drainage holes, this can be very important not only in use on the floor, but also in keeping the surface clear for safe and sure traction. These openings also assist in cleaning and allowing debris and liquids to flow away.

Here at we look for the best in floor mat and matting products so you do not have to waist your time and money. We are going to be adding this product to our online store soon, however you can still get it from us as we do carry it.

I had a customer who was really satisfied with his kitchen floor matting that lasted about 6 months, this did not seem like a long enough time frame for floor matting to last. I could not believe this was a standard for them, it made me wonder what the industry as a whole had for a standard time. We upgraded them to a mat that has been down for years not months.


Airomat anti fatigue and stress mats

This mat is a PVC mat (with only the purest PVC vinyl material, and hand made in the USA). Airomat not only has the best material you can get for floor mats, the best design I’ve come across. The Large square openings really do the job, we have always liked this mat for all kinds of uses, but now it is right up there with the 100% Nitrile rubber mats and starting to take over the commercial kicthen mat industry.



Introducing the first Logo mat added to our website…

This one is a “Classic”, yes a Classic Impressions.

First things first, does everyone know what a logo mat is, how about if we say an image mat?

see the picture below:


As the picture shows you above a logo or image mat is usually a carpet mat with an image and words or sometimes just word or an image (picture). As you will see later in our new products as they are added at a later date these mats can not only be carpet, but can be rubber mats too.

Usually you will see these at the entrance or entry way, some people call them walk off mats. This is not the only use or place for these mats. Really you will see these mat just about anyplace you want to show off the company logo or name, get a message across to customers, this could be directions or any other needed messages other than your logo or store / company image. A common area other than the entrance would be in front of counters, maybe in a restaurant pick up area or a hotel check in counter, a savvy manager could even put them behind the counter for comfort and good footing with the message he wants to get across, like something as simple as a big smiley face (sure to catch the eye of employees and remind them to smile).

In industrial situations you can use these industrial strength mats are essential in not only safety with good footing and non slip, but also getting a message to your employee or visiting higher ups, and visiting customers. They can have anything printed on them; safety first, company name, directions, a nice welcome message, or something as simple as wipe feet before entering the offices.


These top of the line message mats, logo mats, image mats are made by a great company that gives a 100% satisfaction guaranty (Andersen). Not only a guaranty, but a great quality mat, here at we only carry the best, and we stand behind the products and stand behind and with our customers to get them a fair deal!

Classic Impression mats are made from the best nylon that makes up the logo and the mat. The logo, image or words are made up of carpet fibers, this means there is not pressed on, stuck on label that can not only come off but block the performance of the mat. You get it all with this one, sharp details images and performance. On the product page you will see many colors – these color choices are for the back ground, the image and its details and the words, what an awesome mat. This is not only our first logo mat on our site but a very highly recommended one also.

A feature that is only offered with this line of carpet mats and not other entrance mats is a choice of backing. We have a nub backing that has tons of little carpet grabbing nubs all over the rubber bottom of the mat. These nubs keep the mats from moving around when laid on carpeted floors. The second choice would be a smooth or flat back, this is great for keeping the entry way mat in place on a hard floor.


We are green! The entire line of mats from this company in which we represent have a percentage of recycled material. And its easy for you to go green too! call now or visit

I recommend you stop back at the website often as we do have new products showing up all the time.

go to the website above and see all the colors, pricing and contact information.

As this video shows – get your message across to your employees and customers, sales information or even a safety message like don’t walk on logs:)



You just don’t hear Made in the USA anymore, but what about “Hand Made in the United States of America”. The Airomat mat is a very unique mat, and yes hand made in the US.

The uniqueness, quality and advantages all seem to come from the Large “Square” Openings!

[Large square openings]

Again, the large square openings on the Airomat mat give you what other mats cannot:

Between openings where debris land

Like walking on air

Larger areas to hold liquids and debris

Up and out

As your foot grabs down into
openings & mat to floor.


Dirt stayson floor,not in the mat. Nice little square piles of dirt.

Less mat, more air, 1/4″ strips and openings are 7/8″ x 7/8″

Floating PVC strip, the 1/4″ x 1/2″ tall strips are not welded together, letting them to move and flex.

Created when you step on openings

Drainage Grooves and holes


You remain up on the Airomat mat while everything else falls through and now you get all the advantages of the relief and safety, Again, the design of this mat you do get advantages that other mats just can not do.

This design is a really great design for safety, offering great traction from the openings and the fact your up on the mat.
The pockets of air created when you walk are great for fatigue relief, stress relief, anti stress or anti fatigue.

We will post more on this product and all the uses
