When you need to protect a delicate tablecloth or dining table, vinyl placemats provide a good solution. Vinyl placemats provide table protection for each individual place and are easy to clean. Vinyl placemats are relatively cheap and come in thousands of shapes, colors and designs to suit any taste
In addition to placemats, tablecloths can also be used to protect the table from spills. People with young children may especially appreciate the many characteristics of vinyl placemats. Vinyl placemats can form a protective barrier between the dinner plate and the precious tablecloth without affecting the style. Placemats may contain spills and debris, and can be quickly wiped clean for the next use. Vinyl placemats can also protect the table from hot plates and cups. In addition, they will always retain their original shape and color.
Vinyl materials can be made into many colors. Vinyl is made of a plastic polymer called polyvinyl chloride (PVC), which has durability, flexibility, and thermal properties. The film vinyl is sandwiched between the cushion material and heat-sealed around the edges to form a placemat. The liner can be soft or hard, and the lid can be smooth or textured, depending on the design of the placemat. Some vinyl placemats are made of a layer of vinyl without any lining material. Some people prefer fabric placemats instead of vinyl, just to expand the choice of fashionable materials. In addition to vinyl, there are thousands of options, including woven textiles, hand-dyed, beaded and quilted placemats. There are also some fancy tassels or tassels, and some are even made of wood or bamboo. But when it comes to washable placemats, vinyl placemats are winners every time. Some placemats do not allow washing, which is a bad choice in the long run.
The biggest advantage of a vinyl placemat is that it can be almost any imaginable color, and it can also be cut into any size or shape, including square, round, oval and hexagonal. They can be reversible, so both sides can be used. They can be printed with any pictures, logos or patterns you want; and they are refreshing in nature. Multicolor vinyl strands can be woven into a basket weave pattern. Placemats can also be made of vinyl mesh to provide lightweight desktop protection. Although vinyl placemats have their advantages, they are not the best choice for everyone. Although research is still ongoing, some studies have shown that vinyl products, especially PVC, may release harmful substances such as dioxins and phthalates, both of which are related to carcinogenesis. However, these substances are released in large quantities only when the PVC product is heated, and may not pose a risk in daily life.
