    • NO mounting hardware needed for Adhesive-supported Types and squeeze-on Type B.
    • 4. What can this material be mounted to?
    • Types A, A+, E, H, H+ and H+Steel: any corner with 90° angle, typically wall corners, machinery, equipment, overhead protrusions, objects like ladders, mail/delivery carts, etc.
    • Types B, G: ideal on I-Beam shelves
    • Types C, C+, D, F: any flat surface, e.g., on machinery, equipment, walls, shelves, equipment, forklifts, trucks, overhead protrusions; in parking garages to avoid dings and scrapes on car doors.
    • Type R1 + R2: on pipes and other round obstacles; underneath parking garage gate arms.
    • Type S1, S1Steel: in loading dock areas; parking garages; where very strong wall protection is needed.
    • 2D + 3D Corners: as end-caps for continuous bumper types A, B, C; on pointed furniture corners (bookcases, metal filing cabinets, etc).

5. Can this material be used indoors, outdoors or both?

    • Black-Yellow indoor and outdoor use.

    • Bendable, yet neither flexible nor rigid.

8. What is the temperature range of this material?

    • From -35° Celsius = -31° Fahrenheit to 80° Celsius = 176° Fahrenheit in normal dry conditions.

9. What is the temperature range of the adhesive?

9. What is the temperature range of the adhesive?

    • From -40° Celsius = -40° Fahrenheit to 100° Celsius = 212° Fahrenheit in normal dry conditions.

    • make protrusions & obstacles along the way brightly visible
    • avoid the risk of injury as a person hits the soft, cushioned bumper guard instead of a sharp,
    • pointed corner or hard metal object
    • protect building features by reducing the damage to corners (imagine carts constantly cutting a corner and damaging the corner edge …)
    • protect equipment & machinery
    • protect cars in parking environments: avoid dings and scrapes on car paint

12. What is the durometer of this material and the shore scale it was measured on?

    • Approximately 55 measured per Shore A

13. Flammability Test:
