To my surprise, the Alvin mat turned out to be much thicker and and there was an annoying drop when the cutter reached the ridge between them. I also found that the Alvin mat was truly self-healing while my Fiskars mat was filled with gouges. The quality of the Alvin mat was so good that I ordered another in the exact same size and now have a nice large cutting surface that is also easy to store.
Pros: (my mat)doesn't smell
Cons: warped to the 100th power
I'll probably buy another one when this one inevitably eventually wears out. It was inexpensive, looks nice, and gets the job done.
I don’t know the chemistry behind these 'self healing' mats but I've had mine for about 3 yrs and have had no issues until I moved from a warm / hot environment (Phoenix / Vegas) to a very mild locale (San Francisco). During the move from Vegas (summer time) I rolled this up and set it outside for a few minutes; in that time the sun totally made this soft as string which gave me the idea for my fix.
Upon offloading in san fran, this mat was stiff as a board! I tried using a hair dryer and space heater to make it pliable w/out luck (though I was able to get it to unroll.) I then ordered a heat gun: https://www.amazon.com/Wagner-0503008-HT1000-200-watt-Heat/dp/B00004TUCV/ref=sr_1_2?s=hi&ie=UTF8&qid=1472322852&sr=1-2&keywords=heat+gun
It took some time on high heat (so as not to melt the mat) and several dumb bell weights to flatten while cooling, but I was able to get it to lay flat again. In Phoenix I didn't have any issues with the malleability; even during the winter it was soft and flexible. But here in San Fran (add colder climates) this thing is very rigid (see pics before/after; in phoenix the after pic mat would have been draping over the table - not firm holding a ridge.
Btw, that heat gun is one the best $20 purchases I've ever made; this mat is right up there with those purchases!
I just wish the edges were rounded, but maybe they'll smooth out with time. It has a faint plasticky smell too. Not bad at all, an average mouse pad smells stronger when new.
It's reversible, one side is green and one is black. I actually like the look of the grid too :)
