tpECOmat 3mm, 5mm, & 8mm
TPE stands for Thermo-Plastic Elastomer. But don’t let the technical-sounding name fool you! This is a new, 100% recyclable and photodegradable composite material, completely free of PVC, latex, rubber and allergens. Thermo Plastic Elastomer is a non-porous, resilient and highly elastic material, meaning you can stretch it repeatedly without compromising its original shape. Our mats are constructed using closed-cell technology, which makes them impervious to germs, odor and bacteria. The Kulae tpECOmats are extremely lightweight – especialy for their level of durability – and will not start to smell over time like rubber mats. The 3mm tpECOmat can be folded into squares, which makes it convenient for travel in a backpack or tote. We also carry this mat in a 5mm and 8mm thickness. The 5mm mat offers perfect cushion for all styles while maintaining a firm base for balance, and the 8mm mat is perfect for both restorative yoga and Pilates. TPE is an extremely clean, scent-free and eco-friendly material that will dry off within 30 minutes of cleaning. A simple shower for the mat will do! Hang it over a towel rack and it’ll dry in a half hour. For a deeper clean, we recommend using our Kulae organic mat cleaner or the organic mat cleaning product of your choosing.
