Title: INDUSTRIAL MAT WITH MOLDED CORE AND OUTER ABUSE SURFACES
Abstract:
An industrial mat having a core construction that provides strength and rigidity, an encapsulation of a durable skin of a thermoplastic, thermosetting or elastomeric material that surrounds the core construction, and upper and/or lower surfaces of a plurality of elongated members. The members of the upper and/or lower surfaces are advantageously arranged in spaced relation in at least one layer and are attached together or to the core construction. The elongated members can be arranged for interlocking of the mats or for protecting the skin from abrasion and impact during transport, installation and use of the mat. The resulting industrial mat has a load bearing capacity that is able to withstand a load of at least 600 to 1000 psi without permanent deformation and typically have a width of 2 to 12 feet, a length of 2 to 40 feet and an overall thickness of 2 to 18 inches.
