Razer Ironclad Hard Gaming Mouse Mat

The Razer Ironclad is a hard aluminum mouse mat for gamers who prefer the hard surface of metal over a flexible surface like cloth or rubber. The Ironclad gives you a hard aluminum surface that will not flex and comes with a rubber base that does not allow the Ironclad to slide on your desk.

The Ironclad is 13 3/4 by 9 3/4 inches and very thin, 2.5mm in thickness but the foam rubber base adds a couple of millimeters so over all this is probably about 4.5 to 5 millimeters thick. The rubber secures the Ironclad in place but the real story is what happens with the top of the mouse mat that is a hard anodized surface.

Whats in the Box

The Ironclad is basically a nicely finished, very smooth mouse surface but not as smooth as some mouse pads I have used, it does make gaming and general computer use very good. You have to enjoy the hard surface for mouse use in order to make the most out of the Ironclad and if you like hard mouse pads this one is great.

The aluminum of the ironclad is sandblasted smooth before anodizing to create a smooth yet responsive surface that works very well for optical sensors. I have had no problems with any of the Razer and other mice on the Ironclad for the several weeks I have been using it.

Razer Logo Detail

The Ironclad has a unique feel and look with its gray color and indents along the top and bottom along with the usual Razer Logo etched into the corner. The surface you mouse on is sandblasted before it’s anodized and looks like it’s painted but this is the anodizing that makes a thick coating that is wear resistant as well as corrosion resistant.

Scraping off a little of one corner reveals the bright aluminum underneath the coating but it takes scraping with a razor knife to get the coating off. Normal wear and tear will not do much of anything against this tough coating type and regular mouse use will take years to show wear on it.

Razer Ironclad Mouse Mat

The Ironclad comes with the Mouse mat itself and a very nice plastic with foam rubber lined case along with the usual certificate of authenticity and Razer logo stickers. The case fits the Ironclad perfectly and makes a nice gift box as well as a carry case for the Ironclad.

If you’re looking for a durable and smooth surface for your mouse and want a hard mouse mat the Ironclad from Razer is a perfect one. I highly recommend the Razer Ironclad for an elite gaming surface for gaming or even general computer use that costs $60.
