What are the Olympic bumper plates?

The bumper plates are the weight plates that are made of thick and high dense rubber.  The rubbery built-up protects the core (weights and barbell) and avoids damage on the floor by falling. 

The standard diameter is used in all types of weights so that the barbell can be loaded. The diameter and inserts of Olympic bumper plates are consecutively 450 mm and 50.4 mm.

What are the materials of Olympic bumper plates?

The standard answer is iron that most of the plates are made of. The cast iron (molten) is firstly put into sand for shaping and left alone for cooling to get hardened. 

Later on, plates are colored and put into the oven for baking the paint. It makes the surface harder, as well as avoids scratches and chipping. 

Milled weight plates are made of the same materials but have larger dimensions overall.

Buying Olympic bumper plates from outside China requires a business visa. To get that, you may need the following documents:

You need to have a business identity. You can communicate with the buyer online and ask for a quotation. 

Besides, the buyer must acknowledge the policy of air freight, sea freight, or courier service while importing equipment from China.

Port charge, comparatively lengthy shipment, extra packaging, etc., are some terms that should be considered while selecting this medium. 

After reaching the desired destination, local courier services (e.g., DHL, FedEx, UPS, TNT,   can lead the package to the exact location. Visit the following link to get more information:
