How to Apply Rubber Bumper Stops


Hello, and welcome to Bumper Specialties. This video is going to go over how to apply our bumpers for maximum performance. To begin, make sure the surface of your application is smooth, non-porous, clean, dry, and free of debris, oils, and solvents. We suggest using a little isopropyl alcohol on the lint-free cloth, and wipe the area down to ensure the strongest adhesion. Next, grasp the bumper on the sides without touching the adhesive. This part is very important. If I touch the bottom of this bumper, the natural oils in my fingertips will weaken the adhesive, causing to fail. In fact, allowing the bottom of our bumpers to come into contact with any surface before they’re applied to your application will drastically decrease their adhesive properties. These bumpers should always go directly from their sheet to your application. Be sure to press it down firmly. Don’t try to reposition the bumper at this point. Once it’s in place, that’s it. If the bumper is accidentally put in the wrong spot, remove and discard it, and repeat the process with a new bumper. To ensure you get the most out of our bumpers, please allow twelve to twenty-four hours of dwell time before applying lateral force or weight to them. Please note that we recommend a storage and application temperature of seventy to eighty degrees Fahrenheit, or twenty one to twenty seven degrees Celsius for our bumpers. It’s best to store these bumpers in their original packaging. If you’ve got clear or white bumpers, this paper will help prolong them. Any other color will be alright without it. Keep the bumpers at room temperature and definitely away from direct sunlight. Trust us, we’re the experts. Thanks for watching, and if you’ve got any questions or concerns, please don’t hesitate to give us a call.
