NBR is the abbreviation of nitrile rubber. It is an industrially synthesized rubber material and also a type of rubber. Nitrile rubber is mainly produced by lowtemperature emulsion polymerization. It has excellent oil resistance, high wear resistance, and good heat resistance. Strong adhesion. The disadvantages are poor low-temperature resistance, poor ozone resistance, poor insulation performance, and slightly lower elasticity.
The main odor of NBR mats comes from the decomposition of the foaming agent, which may contain harmful gases such as ammonia and nitrogen dioxide. Low price, large thickness, poor durability, only suitable for beginners.
PVC is the abbreviation of polyvinyl chloride. At present, the most widely used plastics, daily sewer pipes, cups, etc. all have PVC materials. Plastics generally give us the feeling of good elasticity, but the hardness is very large.
After being processed by foaming technology and anti-tearing technology, it is made into yoga mat. The price is low, the resilience is poor, and it is easy toHow to choose a yoga mat in different materials 2 drop the slag after a long time. It is more suitable for beginners.
TPE is the abbreviation of thermoplastic elastomer, which has the advantages of both plastic and rubber. It is widely used in sports equipment, sealing materials, adult toys, etc. The anti-skid effect and rebound effect are perfect. When making cushions, the degree of foaming is generally low and filled. The agent is also used less, so the taste and safety are better.
The price is medium, the resilience is good, the anti-skid effect is good, the durability is strong, it is more suitable for professional yoga practice.
The rubber material will not be described too much, and everyone knows relatively much. The slip resistance and durability of the rubber pad are very good. The disadvantage is that the taste is very heavy, and it is not easy to remove. The anti-slip effect is reduced after sweating hands and feet. The advantages are Taste but non-toxic. The price is more expensive, good resilience, anti-skid and wear-resistant, but does not absorb water. More suitable for professional yoga practice.
PU is the abbreviation of polyurethane. It is an emerging organic polymer material. It is used in artificial leather, the famous sharkskin swimsuit, sofa, and outer film of the automobile steering wheel. It is non-slip in both wet conditions. The surface of the PU rubber pad is made of polyurethane film, which is attached to the rubber base at high temperatures. It is made into a non-slip, skin-friendly, and water-absorbing mat. The disadvantage is that it is afraid of oil, difficult to care for, dust-absorbing, has a rubber taste, and more importantly, fried chicken is expensive. Suitable for professional yoga practice
Therefore, if you are just a beginner or a beginner who wants to try it, I suggest you choose a cheaper PVC or TPE yoga mat. And if you want to conduct professional training, then please choose TPE, Rubber, or PU yoga mat according to your own situation.
