HDC's ABumper Designed to Increase Safety & Decrease Collision Repair Costs

October 30, 2006

AUSTIN, TEXAS – HDC Inc.’s ABumper, a cellular rubber pad, is designed to absorb energy during an impact and reduce or eliminate collateral damage, thereby reducing vehicle downtime. ABumper has endured repeated flat barrier impacts mounted to a full-size Ford F-150 at more than 5 mph through independent testing with no damage noted to the bumper or vehicle. ABumper's impact-absorbing abilities provide increased occupant and cargo safety and decreased collision repair costs. ABumper’s rubber compound is made from Elastomer, which allows large elastic deformations, ideal for a bumper. The rubber, EPDM, tests above average against environmental conditions, and is designed to serve a 10-year cycle application. Pads are used for a variety of applications, including fleets, utility bodies, street cleaners, snow plows, and delivery vehicles. For more information, visit
