Anyone have any experience with anti-static mats that are soldering safe? I bought a cheap anti-static mat from Jameco and it's fine except it's getting messed up because it is not solder safe. I have a soldering mat from Amazon that is solder safe, but it is not anti-static so I can't use it once I have semiconductors mounted on the board (good thing I use sockets so semiconductors are the last step). When I peel the mat off the table the amount of static created is amazing - I feel it on my arm hairs. NOT SAFE!
I'd like to replace both with one. What is a good one that is static-safe and won't burn from hot solder? Any link would be appreciated.
Current mat for soldering:
This is a badass mat, but it is not anti-static. In fact, it is firmly pro-static and not changing it's stance any time soon.

Beginning to resemble swiss cheese. :(
