Does what it says

"Not much to say about a heatproof mat, other than it does what it is supposed to. No problems with it at all."

Does the job well

"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
25 Nov 2012
By Anonymous
, Dorset
"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

OK product

"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."

Good product, but not with Map
22 May 2010
By Boilerman

"The mat worked well with standard propane, but does not stand up to use with Map gas for very long. After 2 boiler installs it is falling apart with loads of holes."

"Keeps things cool behind it what more could you want? Although it does very quickly, it starts to fray at the edges and then falls apart."

Only a drip mat not heat proof
13 Jun 2013
By Pat1984

"I asked for the cheapest heat-resistant soldering mat and I was sold this item, but it isn't heat resistant! So took it back and exchanged for a proper one."
