Rated 5 out of 5Â by RichT123 Hot under the collar
Actually the opposite. When around a pipe the collar on this mat does a good job of reducing the amount of heat that makes it through.
It is sacrificial though, so don't point your torch at it for too long!
To test it out, I did a 5 second blast of the mat with a MAPP torch with a block of polystyrene underneath. The mat glowed red but the underside was only warm. The styrene deformed a little - about the same as boiling water might cause.

Rated 5 out of 5Â by Jimjas Monument Soldering Mat
This soldering mat is the 3rd one we have had in the past months.
Tried it out on some very tight spaces & it was straight forward once in place it stayed where it was.
Not like some of the other branded mats.

I have had 5 heat mats in the last 6 months and this one has probably been the most convenient and has lasted longer. Easy to get behind the the pipe for soldering and no burn marks at all
