Sticky Dirt Control Mats

Sticky Dirt Control Mats

Sticky dirt control mats or also known as tacky mats are simply stuck to the floor near an entry or exit door by removing the rear protective backing layer.

Each mat layer is then peeled off when dirty to reveal another new layer. Each layer is coated with a high tack adhesive which removes dust or dirt contamination from entering your clean area.

The mats can last up to several weeks at a time depending on the amount and type of traffic, removes contamination and cleans shoe soles before entry into areas such as; clean rooms and laboratories etc but can also be used in domestic applications.

Sticky mats are ideal for keep dust, dirt, and other particulates from spreading due to foot traffic. As foot traffic or wheels pass over the surface of the mat the non-transferring adhesive locks onto the dirt and captures it.

Sticky Mats are comprised of 30 or 60 layers of adhesive-coated film that effectively removes dirt from shoes, equipment wheels, and even pet paws.

Positioning Your Mat

Always place numbered tabs closest to your clean area so that sheets are removed in the direction away from the clean room.

Place sticky dirt control mats outside the room at every entrance with the numbered tab closest to the clean area so that when a sheet is removed, the contaminated sheet is peeled away from the entryway.

When mats are positioned at each exit, position the numbered tab nearest the room interior so that when a sheet is removed, the contaminated sheet is peeled toward the exit.

The length of the mat should capture a set of footprints, a minimum of 30″. Install smaller mats so that the longer side of the mat follows foot traffic.


Make sure the floor surface (or frame, if using a frame) is completely dry and free of debris. Use a damp wiper to remove any latent dust.

The bottom of the mat has a sticky sheet protected by a clear cover sheet. Remove this cover sheet to expose the bottom “sticky” sheet. Then, place your sticky dirt control mats in the desired location.

If you are using a frame, center the mat on the frame surface. When you are ready to use your mat, remove the clear cover sheet on the top to expose the first sheet.

The sticky dirt control mats numbers should face up after installation.

If your mat was placed on a dirty surface or no longer remains stuck to the floor or the frame, you can use double sided carpet tape (not the thick foam type) to anchor it again.

The tape is available at most hardware and home stores. Turn your mat over, brush off any debris and place 3 or 4 strips of carpet tape across the bottom of the mat.

Again, make sure the floor or frame surface is completely clean and dry before adhering the mat.

Properly Removing Each Layer

Use the numbered tab to initiate the sheet removal, then slowly peel up the edges toward the middle to form a bag. Always peel layers in the direction away from your critical environment.

Expose a fresh layer before a sheet loses all it’s stickiness. If you wait until it is no longer sticky, you’ve waited too long and this will reduce the effectiveness of your matting.
