Just when we think we have Martin Welberg's static application secrets figured out he surprises us with a new product that just defies known techniques. This mat is so complex with the number of layers, the number of different materials and the technical tricks he must incorporate, that this mat definitely features the epitome of static accomplishments.
The ultra-thin vinyl backing of Martin Welberg mats appear nearly invisible when placed correctly. Being so thin they have no edge and lay perfectly flat and will not curl or pucker. Being vinyl, they will conform to extremely rugged terrain contours. By using the correct glues such as Tšk-E-Glue or Web Spray type adhesive, you can create an intricate 'patch-work' pattern which appears more natural and increases the surface area the mat covers. In some instances a normal hair-dryer can be used to help conform the mat to various contours.
The small perforations serve as a 'tooth' to allow more grip when gluing the mat surface. The perf also allows an easier method of tearing the mat with a more natural ragged edge.
