Construction of Jason placemats
Jason placemats are made with a cork backed base, a hardboard centre and the top is finished with a hard lacquer surface. The cork base is both durable and relatively soft and is the perfect material for protecting the surface of your table from scratches which could occur with a harder material than cork. The top layer is a hard lacquer which is applied in liquid form and then heated to a very high temperature. The liquid lacquer then dries and forms an extremely hard, protective surface.
This heat-treated surface protects the placemat design from the wear and tear of daily usage. The middle part of the Jason cork backed placemats is made from wood board sourced from Eucalyptus trees. These hardboard centres comply with strict environmental regulations and the trees are grown on renewable plantations.
