Our Plastic Bats are textured on both sides so clay adheres equally well on either surface: a true "two-sided" bat. They are cut from a high-quality marine grade High Density Polyethylene (HDPE), which is produced using a patented extrusion process. This ensures perfect flatness of every sheet and every bat!
