Introducing Thermacell Repellents Max Life 12-hr Mat for Spring 2016


Bedford, Mass. (Summer 2015) – Thermacell® Repellents Inc., a leading manufacturer of area mosquito repellent products, is introducing the Max Life repellent mat that provides 12 hours of protection from mosquitoes, black flies and no-see-ums. Now you can have Thermacell protection that can last all day or all night.

“The Thermacell Max Life mat with 12 hours of continuous protection will last three times as long as our regular repellent mats, so you can enjoy outdoor activities for extended periods of time,” said Allegra Lowitt, Thermacell chief marketing officer. “Whether you are camping all day, fishing from sun up to sun down, or having a great backyard bash that lasts into the wee hours, the new Max Life mat has you covered. Members of the armed forces and outdoorsmen asked for this long duration mat and we’re excited to bring it to market for them.”

The Max Life Mat works with the entire collection of Thermacell products including repellers, torches and lanterns. Thermacell products work in minutes and Max Life protection can now last up to 12 continuous hours. By heating the mat with a butane cartridge, the repellent is vaporized for effective, fast coverage.

Rather than using a spray repellent, Thermacell uses a non-topical patented technology to create a 15ft x15ft zone of protection from mosquitoes and other biting insects that covers the average size campsite. The repellent is virtually odorless and silent. The Max Life Mat refill has four mats and four cartridges in a box, providing 48 hours of protection and will be available at major retailers with a MSRP of $20.99.
