Wrestling mats can be very expensive. So you have to be able to buy the wrestling mat that best suits you and your preferances. There are two major types of wrestling mats for sale. The lightest type of wrestling mats is the Dollamur. Dollamur wrestling mats are made from a type of material called Trocellen closed cell polyethylene foam.
Vinyl is used to cover the top most layer of the wrestling mat, and the surface at the bottom is made of needle punch carpeting. This makes the wrestling mats more durable. Dollamur wrestling mats are constructed in thicknesses ranging from 2 inches, down to 5/8 of an inch. These wrestling mats are easy to carry around as they are light in weight.
The other major type of wrestling mat is the Polyvinylchloride foam, commonly called PVC. These wrestling mats range in thickness, between 1 inch and 1.25 inches. One of most popular PVC wrestling mat brands is Resilite wrestling mats.
