Abstract

See full text

The present invention relates to a floor mat having a dressed edge including extruding material into a sheet that defines the bottom layer of a floor mat. The extruded sheet is bonded to a fabric sheet that defines the top layer of a floor mat where the two layers cooperate to define a laminate. A plurality of nibs is defined on the extruded sheet and a portion of the nibs are subsequently removed through the application of an electromagnetic frequency having a wavelength between 8 kHz and 35,000 MHz to provide at least one smooth area. The laminate is cut into a predetermined shape having a peripheral edge, where the smooth area is disposed along the peripheral edge. The peripheral edge is dressed with a border that conceals the joint between the top layer and the bottom layer and facilitates the bond therebetween.
