Your gun is a proud possession as well as an investment and should be protected as such. TekMats depict the fascinating mechanical assembly of each firearm accompanied with data, history and details on each gun. We don't want cleaning, repairing or storing your firearm to be a chore and when seated in front of one of these gun mats, it certainly won't be. Aside from the aesthetic and intellectual appeal; TekMats also serve a very purposeful and functional role in protecting your firearms. They worked with numerous suppliers and tested many materials to find one that would be suited for both the imprinting of the design as well as protection of your firearm. The top surface of the gun mat is soft and made to protect your gun from scratches while the rubber backing will help to absorb damaging impacts from accidentally dropping your gun or parts while working on them and it also helps hold the mat in place while it is in use. We also utilize a special printing technology that prevents the ink from simply sitting on top of the material but instead fuses the ink into the fibers of the cloth via sublimation. This keeps the surface of the gun pads completely soft and even and helps ensure the print will last through repeated washing and cleaning of the gun mat.
