Rubber bumpers are widely used in various applications. They are defined as devices used to absorb shock between two objects. The most common application of bumpers is in vehicles. A bumper is made of various materials that can move easily. They can also have pneumatic or hydraulic cylinders which allow them to move when hit. The bumper is used to minimize the effect of collisions. Materials used can be heavy steel, plastic, painted light metal and rubber. These bumpers are widely used because they are susceptible to damage from small contacts. They are considered to be elastomeric hardware devices that are used for edge protection, cushioning, and impact absorption.
Used in the cooling system of vehicles.
They are used to provide protection for safety-related equipment like taillights, headlamps, and parking lights in low-speed collisions.
Bumpers offer reduced sound qualities for cabinets and vanity doors.
They provide additional support for printed circuit boards.
Heavy-duty rubber dock bumpers are used for both vehicle and loading dock applications.
They provide protection to surfaces and allow spacing and ventilation.
The vibration in equipment is controlled by using a bumper.
The rubber bumper also offers sliding resistance.
These bumpers absorb and deliver momentum during collisions, which reduces the effect of collision.
They protect the surfaces from scratches and skidding.
The main advantage of rubber and plastic bumpers is that they can be manufactured in the desired colors.
