Yoga Mat materials are mainly divided into five kinds

1. NBR (nickel butadiene rubber): it is an industrial synthetic material with poor skid resistance, durability and portability, general elasticity, strong taste and low price.

2. PVC yoga mat

PVC (polyvinyl chloride) is one of the most commonly used materials for making yoga mats. The disadvantage is that PVC material is not environmentally friendly, so it can't be degraded, and its rebound is weak, and it's not dirt resistant,

You need to get rid of it. If you are a health conscious person, you may want to avoid using PVC pads.

3. TPE yoga mat

TPE (thermoplastic elastomer) is sometimes called thermoplastic rubber. It is a kind of copolymer or physical mixture of polymer (usually plastic and rubber) composed of thermoplastic and elastic materials,

It is a high-end environmental protection material with better taste and safety. It has the elasticity comparable to natural rubber, and has the advantages of typical rubber and plastic materials. It can be recycled after being discarded and is harmless to the environment.

And it has the characteristics of environmental protection, non-toxic, no heavy metals, no pungent smell and so on. TPE Yoga Mat is tasteless, very light, very portable, very soft, resilient and non slip.

4. Rubber Yoga Mat

Rubber is a very simple material, it is natural, renewable and biodegradable. Rubber provides a very strong grip,

Think about what tires are made of? Rubber, which means that rubber is the most non slip material on the market.

Compared with TPE yoga mats, rubber yoga mats of the same thickness are much heavier and less absorbent,

And there is a rubber smell, which will not be sent out for a long time, but please rest assured that the rubber smell is non-toxic.

Yoga Pu mat

The main materials of Pu Rubber Yoga mat are polyurethane and rubber. Pu is an organic polymer material, which is an excellent material for making mat.

It is non-toxic and tasteless, not easy to rot, good elasticity, friction, sweat resistance (other materials will sweat a little), long service life, moderate weight.

The Pu Rubber Yoga mat formed by combining it with rubber at high temperature has good elasticity, good anti-skid performance, good flatness, light weight, small volume and convenient carrying. But the price is very expensive.
