This mat has a high water retention capacity: more than 6 litres per m².
Its disadvantages include the mechanical weakness of its fibres since they are discontinuous and twisted. Moreover, as cotton is a natural fibre, it can be chemically damaged by acids and by fungi (mould). Washing and drying cotton mats is also more expensive than in the case of synthetic mats.
On the other hand, some people demand the retention capacity of cotton and many companies are still offering them to their customers.
Cotton mats are still unbeatable for water retention ! In order to reduce the cost of drying cotton mats (and also all our other types of mats), Bartex advises using the Quickdry sole option (= invisible star-shaped small holes throughout the surface of the rubber) that allows the water to run out when spin-drying. This reduces drying time in a spin-dryer by 30%.
