Self-Healing Cutting Mat

We manufacture large mats that are considered Self-Healing. This means the mat actually repairs itself after a cut has been made, leaving space for another cut along a different line. With low-quality self-healing cutting mats, there is a chance your blade will eventually fall into the previously made crevice, lines or cuts and you will need to cut again. The best quality is always guaranteed with CuttingmatsXXL.

Order your normal, extra large or large self healing cutting mats directly and benefit from worldwide delivery. Select your measurements in the product generator and confirm your order. Alternatively, you can always select a standard size cutting mat. All our products are Self-healing!

Hardness of out Cutting Mats

The hardness is an important quality factor for cutting mats. Too hard is not friendly to the knife, the knife will then wear out too quickly. Too soft is of course not desirable. The optimum hardness is 80 to 82 shore. Shore is the unit for measuring hardness. You measure shore with a shore hardness tester.


Don’t be fooled: Our cutting mats are 100% homogeneous. Companies that offer these cutting mats with a harder interior and a softer top layer do not tell the truth. In fact, they even lie.

It is impossible to produce these cutting mats in multiple layers because these mats are produced with the technic of hot extrusion. Hot extrusion is a process whereby a plastic in a heated state and therefore in “liquid” form, is pressed through a mold plate and then cooled. The mold plate to produce cutting mats consists of a nozzle in the desired width with many small holes. Extrusion production will always result in a 100% homogeneous product.

Different Purposes

Self-healing cutting mats can be used for a variety of different purposes, such as quilting. People often don’t understand the importance of a good cuttingmat. However, it is an essential part of cutting things like fabric or other materials. Ordering a cutting mat for sewing is a smart move if you don’t want various holes in your tabletop.
