Cords Canada Ltd. Catalogue – Feet and Bumpers Catalogue
With no holes to drill and no screws or rivets needed, self-adhesive bumpers will save you time and money. Kiss-cut for easy application, they simply peel off and press onto almost any smooth surface. They are non-marring, nonstaining, skid and scratch resistant and they won’t harden or crack. Use them as spacers, feet, cushions, protectors, vibration and shock absorbers. Typical applications: glass and wood doors and drawers, small appliances, telephones, furniture, desktop and office equipment, housewares, advertising displays, wall protectors. Bonding surface guide: aluminum, ceramic, formica, painted surfaces, glass, steel, polyethylene, polypropylene, polystyrene and rigid vinyl.
Rubber-based adhesive is stocked and acrylic-based is available. (High surface energy plastics such as formica, acrylic and polycarbonates adhere best to acrylic-based adhesives. Low surface energy plastics such as polyethylene and polypropylene will adhere best to rubber based adhesives.)

Surface to which bumper adhesive is applied must be clean, dry and free of grease, wax, dust and oil to obtain maximum adhesion. Clean surfaces with low strength solvents such as isopropyl alcohol or Heptane. When applying bumper to surface it’s important to apply a sufficient amount of pressure to assure optimum adhesion.
Adhesive properties should not change for one year if stored at recommended storage guidelines. Lighter colour and clear bumpers may show some darkening or yellowing.
