Excellent product
15 Jul 2014
By
, Tonbridge
" Really pleased with this Rothenberger Plumbers Soldering Mat. I've had a few cheap ones, they just drop to pieces. This product is a nice fine weave which holds back the flame. It's supple, so I can get it into tight places. As stated on the instructions, I take a bit of car with it while it's hot, so as yet no sign of lasting damage. Buy it! "

" Helps to make sure you don't burn the floor or walls.
It let's me solder pipes on top of lino with no probs.
And it's not to small or to big.

VFM heat mat

" Well what can I say...... for the price why risk scorch marks while soldering in tricky places! A must for anyone brazing.
I would reccomend not heating in the same position to increase the life of the mat

" Perfect for the occasional DIY job if all you have is a few solder joints to do now and then. I have only used it for 5 solder joints and already it is showing signs of wear. Not really worth the money as it wont last. "
