Do chair mats smell?
A variety of plastic compounds are used in the manufacture of chair mats. Whether chair mats smell or not depends on the plastic compound of the chair mat.
Chair mats made from PVC contain phthalate plasticizers that outgas from PVC over time. This can cause unpleasent smells and also raise health risks such as asthma or allergies. All of our chair mats are 100% PVC-free. We use polycarbonate as well as polypropylene as plastic compounds in the manufacture of chair mats.
We can therefore guarantee that all of our chair mats are non-smelling, free of toxic chemicals and suitable for people with allergies or asthma.
