Why we no choose waterproof deskmat?

Consider Point

  • Printing
  • Waterproof level
  • Usage habits of modern people
  • Cleaning
  • The durability of this coating


  • Dye sublimation printing is to combine a special ink with polyester fiber molecules under high temperature and pressure to achieve the effect of printing.

  • Deskmat are generally made of polyester fiber and rubber, so adding a layer of water-repellent coating on the surface will affect the combination of polyester fiber and ink, resulting in slightly different colors.
  • If we don't want to affect the printing color, we must add a water-repellent coating after heat transfer. For a factory that needs to print thousands of pieces every day, this workload is really too much. . We have to set up an additional production line to make our mouse pad water-repellent without affecting the color.

Waterproof Level

  • First of all, we must understand to what extent the waterproof function of the waterproof deskmat on the market can be achieved.
  • These deskmat can only achieve water-repellent function, and there is still a big gap with the real waterproof function.Those liquids still have a way to penetrate the outer waterproof layer and seep into the interior of the mouse pad.

Usage habits of modern people

  • Modern people cannot do without computers regardless of entertainment, social interaction, work, etc. Therefore, the time people spend in front of the computer is second only to the time they spend in bed.
  • We believe that many people eat three meals at the computer desk, which greatly increases the chance of our mouse pad getting dirty. Not only are our deskmat soiled by the impact of drinks, but they are further soiled by dust, sweat from hands and food crumbs.
  • Just because it's water repellent doesn't mean our mouse pads won't get dirty. In fact, the water-repellent coating will make it more difficult for us to clean up drinks and sauces that seep into the deskmat.


  • It is inevitable that our deskmat will get dirty during use. After using the mouse pad for a period of time, most people will want to remove the dust and stains on the mouse pad. The water-repellent coating on the mouse pad will become our enemy when cleaning.
  • First of all, we need to understand how the liquid penetrates into the mouse pad. The surface of this type of mouse pad will have a layer of water-repellent coating, but its essence is still cloth, with various holes in the middle, and the liquid There is a chance it can penetrate inside.
  • when we want to clean deep-seated dirt, the water-repellent coating makes it more difficult for us to clean also take us longer to dry.

The durability of the coating

  • This water-repellent function is not achieved through the material (some materials are hydrophobic), but through a layer of coating covering the surface.
  • This method is doomed that the coating will gradually fail with the wear and tear of our use and after cleaning several times. We feel that such protection renders the coating pointless.
  • Non Water-repellent

    • Dirt resistance : ⭐⭐
    • Waterproff level : ⭐
    • Cleaning : ⭐⭐⭐⭐⭐

  • Water-repellent

    • Dirt resistance : ⭐⭐⭐
    • Waterproff level : ⭐⭐
    • Cleaning : ⭐⭐⭐
  • Printed colors can be affected by water-repellent coatings.
  • The waterproof coefficient is not high and has great limitations
  • Water-repellent does not mean that the product will not be soiled. It is unavoidable that the deskmat will be soiled after long-term use.
  • The water-repellent coating will make our cleaning work more difficult.
  • Water-repellent coatings do not provide long-term protection.
  • We don’t think the water-repellent feature is enough of a selling point in the market.

*Our choice is solely a decision made by our production experience, it does not mean that other people's products are bad.
