Adhesive Data

6000 Series Rubber Adhesive
The 6000 series adhesive is an aggressive high tack adhesive system, which displays good instant tack, high peel and shear properties. Usually chosen for applications which require high levels of initial tack. Unless otherwise specified, standard on all coloured BumperStops.
4000 Series Acrylic Adhesive
This is an adhesive with good shear strength and a higher end use temperature. Usually preferred for applications where good ageing properties are a required feature. Unless otherwise specified, standard on all transparent BumperStops.

Exposure to the Environment

BumperStops are intended for interior applications where physical properties will remain unchanged. When used externally for extended periods, some discolouration as well as loss of adhesion may occur.

Load Tolerance Information

In the event of using BumperStops for applications involving the support of heavy plate glass, laboratory tests have shown that cylindrical shapes perform better than hemispherical.

A heavy load supported by the wrong style of BumperStop could result
in fracturing or "crumbling" of the urethane material.

Please refer to the chart for weight loading guidance.

Compression tests were carried out at ambient temperature (24ºC)

Adhesive Considerations

Please refer to the chart which illustrates the relative adhesion properties of the adhesive systems used in BumperStops.

In general terms, allow time (dwell) to increase the surface contact and adhesion. Please note that acrylic based adhesives generally require longer dwell times than rubber based adhesive.

Adhesion properties


Applying BumperStops

It is important to remember that, as with any self adhesive product, the surface to which you are applying BumperStops must be clean, dry and free from dust and dirt. Therefore, to gain maximum adhesion, clean the surface with low strength solvent and allow to dry thoroughly. Please follow solvent manufacturers’ instructions for safety. The information provided above have been gained under laboratory conditions, therefore customers must test BumperStops themselves to ensure suitability for intended applications.
All BumperStops are RoHS and Wee compliant.
