Draftex Cutting Mats are an essential item to have in your range of drawing and model making tools. They are designed to be self healing - your cuts do not leave a distinguishable mark on the surface and therefore do not interfere with the accuracy of your work.
Cutting blades keep sharper much longer as the soft surface layer of the cutting mat is very forgiving to their edge.
A grid pattern on the surface helps with alignment and greater accuracy of results when cutting.
Sizes available range from 900 x 600 to take A1 , 600 x 450 for A2, 450 x 300 for A3 and 300 x 200 for A4.
Care should be taken with cutting mats regarding exposure to strong sunlight or excessive heat as this can cause the surface to buckle. It is possible to flatten this buckling using heat and weights and a search of the web will show a successful method that will suit you best.
