There are many different types of pads in the marketplace today. But finding one that can provide all 3 of the main functions we describe can be a challenge. Most rug pads satisfy the function of keeping the rug in place and not slipping. There are thin and thick open mesh types of pads that are made in China and coated with PVC (polyvinyl chloride) that do a great job of keeping rugs from moving on the floor. This same type of product can be found domestically where it is coated with a natural rubber vs PVC. This product does an effective job of keeping the rug from moving as well. Other products that provide good non-slip properties include the felt rug pads that are coated with a natural rubber. So for satisfying this non-slip function in a rug pad, there are many options to choose from depending on your budget.
