Available in their complete line is their Bumper Cards, having received the “New Product Award” by SEMA (Specialty Equipment Market Association), back in 2013. These proprietary plastic cards mimic all OEM and aftermarket plastics used for bumpers, allowing for superior color matching to be achieved with ease.
Replicating a bumper every step along the way, these spray out bumper cards deliver great results. Traditionally, a metal or paper card is used when trying to color match a bumper to a metal panel. This can often lead to color discrepancy because the static properties of the metal card are different than those of the plastic bumper. Any time plastic is sanded, scuffed or prepped in some way, that action changes the static characteristics of the bumper and causes paint and metallic particles to orientate differently. With the implementation of these bumper cards, you can say goodbye to unwelcome surprises! Know what to expect, and know how your bumper will behave. With the guesswork reduced and/or completely eliminated, these cards are able to help improve job efficiency, productivity and quality.
If sanding, scuffing, prepping, priming and/or waxing is required on the bumper, the same steps will also be performed on the card. Being able to see how the material will react to the extensive process will help eliminate any potential re-work and paint waste that would otherwise occur.
The key is to treat the cards exactly as you would, a bumper:
Available in both black and gray, Carborundum Bumper Cards will help you get a perfect match the first time, every time! While black cards are more frequently used, grey cards are typically desired when color matching lighter colored bumpers.
