...surface protection! You're excited - we can tell ;D
Since winning the Queens Award for Enterprise, our product development team are always exploring new areas for innovation, new surfaces to protect!
As is the case with many crafters out there, we don't all have our own craft studios at home (though we can dream), and tend to work at kitchen tables, desks or on our laps. We had enough of scratches, spillages, marks and dents in our good dining tables and so took home some of our finest polycarbonate mats.
Polycarbonate is a super-strong, clear material, used in the manufacture of bulletproof glass and aircraft windscreens, it makes a great surface protector as it's non-porous, lightweight and won't scratch or mark surfaces.
Turned out these were perfect barriers to everything from spilt ink, heavy sewing machines, occasional hammer blows and even the kids' glitter, which as you know, gets EVERYWHERE! Even hot glue and cups of tea didn't cause a problem (these mats are heatproof up to 100°c (212°F) - genius)! So the CraftTex Ultimate Worktop Protector Mats were born.
So, we want to spread the word: Use Protection, crafters! A flimsy old tablecloth won't help you, so choose the best polycarbonate - because your dining table is worth it (not to mention expensive to replace).
Then crack on with the craft - safe in the knowledge you can chuck almost anything at it... like you need an excuse to make your craft space messy...
