Q: What caliber will ballistic rubber products handle?
A: Ballistic rubber products can handle a majority of rounds. Some rounds will cause faster wear on ballistic products. Hollow point rounds will take larger chunks out of the rubber due to the nature of the round. Products can handle pistol and rifle ammunition up to 7.62 calibers.
Q: How many rounds before breaking down?
A: CRS parts will last 2 to 3 times longer than other ballistic rubber products in the market. Most ballistic rubber products can handle thousands of rounds. Life expectancy is usually determined by range set up, round placement, angle, distance from which rounds are fired, caliber, and the number of shots fired. All of these factors can contribute to the life of the product.
Q: What is the difference between cold-pressed and high density vulcanized rubber?
A: Cold-pressed rubber products are a lower-cost and lower durability version of ballistic rubber goods. The process is to take rubber particles and a glue binder and press the ballistic product to form.
High density vulcanized ballistic rubber is the optimal way to produce ballistic products. CRS builds parts this way for optimal performance. Our parts are built with uncured natural rubber compound + time and pressure molding. The rubber is then cured with 100% consistency. Which results in parts that last much longer, control rounds better, self-heal, and can handle weather extremes.
Q: How do CRS products hold up to weather extremes?
A: CRS products are designed to handle weather extremes. Our rubber has a non-porous surface to increase longevity in the elements.
