A first of its kind, the Carboy Bumper is a simple product designed to fill a gap in homebrewing and winemaking. Made from a special shock absorbing microcellular material that is soft to touch, but when stressed upon impact, it hardens up to absorb the impact. The Carboy Bumper material absorbs up to 90% of impact energy protecting any carboy from impact damage, in accordance to ASTM-F1614-C. Even with careful carboy handling practices, microfractures develop in your glass carboy every time you place it down on a hard surface. Overtime, these microfractures weaken the structure of your carboy. The Carboy Bumper is designed to attach to and extend the life of your carboy and prevent breakage that occur from everyday carboy usage.FIRST OF ITS KIND CARBOY PROTECTOR: The Carboy Bumper was designed to preserve the life of your carboy and reduce the risk of breakage by offering protection where your carboy needs it most. You place your carboy on the bottom every time you set it down. The ground is hard and glass is fragile. The Carboy Bumper will minimize the risk of damage from repeated hard landings, bumps, knocks, and other stresses of day-to-day use.
