We use some of this clear vinyl, like you'd see in a walk in fridge... get the wide stuff and cut it out to fit under a cutting station. It completely saves the floors and when it's trashed out we can just throw it away, get he floors cleaned and put some more down... works great for me.

we use the 48" roll here

I'm sure you can google other vendors too... 

best of luck!

What does your institution do to mitigate paraffin collection on the floors? Do you strip the floors at defined periods of time? Do you use mats throughout entire laboratory, under microtomy stations? Currently our institution uses a sticky plastic green flooring, which is ripped up every quarter and replaced. However, during this time there are many spots which the plastic breaks down due to consistent activity over a spot. This requires the flooring to be scraped, stripped, etc.
