Discs are glass bead blasted to provide great aesthetic look after multiple uses. Textured surface of steel discs lessens unsightly surface scratches and scuffing. Dead blow low bounce virgin rubber and rubber compounds. Rubber sits approximately 1.25 mm above disc to ensure super tight fit and minimal metal to metal contact between bumper plates. The steel discs of the Vulcan Absolute Bumper Plate are guaranteed not to depart from the plate or spin within the plate for the duration of the warranty.
