Re: Hi- Temp Quality Question

I'd imagine the mold or press that creates these plates has some sort of lube that prevents the rubber from sticking to it. Looks like these plates had a hard time coming out of the mold.

My neighbor just got a set of Rogue Hi Temps but they are all very shiny and do not have any places like your photos show.

Yeah, that's what I've seen elsewhere... Almost like these were produced at the end of a production run. Still no response from Rogue.

Re: Hi- Temp Quality Question

Rogue is replacing the bumpers. As they indicated to me, some blemishes are inherent in these bumpers, however, these blemishes are excessive. As always, Rogue comes through!

Yes, when you mold these types of products, you use a "mold release". Same thing we used to use to build composite parts. For high quanitity production, you re-apply it after every so many parts. Sometimes, toward the end of said production run, the adhesive starts to "stick" to the mold and it doesn't release as easily. Then you have problems like the bumpers received in the pics.

I used to work in composites in the aviation industry!!
