This cutting mat has an 8 in x 12 in cutting area and is compatible with all Silhouette electronic cutting tools. It has the ideal tackiness for holding thin and thick media from paper and cardstock to fabric and magnet paper.

I mostly cut fabric pieces, with iron on adhesive attached. It used to cut beautifully with the older style mats, which were more opaque and stickier. These barely hold onto the fabric. I actually have to scotch tape it around the edges, and then because the fabric jumps around the cut is not as clean.
Also, they smell funny. This probably wouldn't bother me if the product was otherwise good. But they smell kind of like brand new bath toys - pvc? - and it seems to linger in the room for a while....
I did email silhouette about these and learned that this redesign is unfortunately a permanent change. Here's what they said:
"The mat in question would represent a product adjustment made to the light-hold mat product. The new style of light-hold mat offers a lighter adhesive level in order to avoid curling fine or delicate paper materials as they are removed from the mat. Though some materials may not stick as well to the mat and come off very easily, please rest assured that the horizontal adhesive level should secure the material in regard to its side-to-side tension in order to ensure proper cutting alignment."
I will continue to use these because I have no other options. The regular hold mats stick too strongly to the paper backed adhesive and take me 20 minutes to get all the paper off. These are just nearly disposable. I can use them like 3 times and then have to get new ones.
I'm back to using my old, worn, barely tacky mats. :(
Alternatively, I haven't used my Silhouette to cut fabric yet, but I imagine that a very sticky mat such as this would be perfect for fabric.
The mat I received last week looks different then the prior ones I've received - it's now crystal clear, and has quite a noticable chemical smell to it. I assume that's because they changed the adhesive. It's been 1 week and it's already done. I've cut no more than 10 items on it - 10 simple flat cards - and the adhesive stopped working at about # 5 or 6. I can no longer get straight cuts because the cardstock is moving around during the cutting process. I will have to use tape to keep it on for my current project, but will return it for a refund. I guess I'll order the regular hold mats from now on.
Unless you plan to spray it with adhesive, I'd buy something else!
