Rimblades Flex are the original Rimblades that started our company and the first product to carry the Rimblades brand name. They have been redesigned for 2021 with an improved plastic blend and wider VHB (very high bond tape) for extra adhesion. Rimblades Flex are a great value product designed to offer alloy rim protection from kerb impact at parking speeds and additionally as a colour trim ring styling upgrade or to cover existing damage on your alloy wheels. They also offer a good level of wheel protection against small road debris (flying gravel chips, for example) and parking scrapes.
Rimblades Flex are manufactured from a material that is our own blend and manufactured specifically for us in the UK. We have blended rubber into the plastic to give it some flexibility without the use of plasticisers, which can leach into the VHB tape over time causing a breakdown of the bond and contribute to premature structural failure. Rimblades Flex are the widest product we make at 10mm and now use an 8mm wide VHB tape for 25% more bond strength.
BOND ON FITTING FOR ROUNDED EDGES
Rimblades Flex are a crescent moon shape and curve around the top edge of the wheel. They are best suited to wheels that have a rounded edge or are flat with a rounded off top edge. Rimblades Flex require cutting to size during each application, and are supplied in 4 x 1.9 metre lengths and will fit wheels up to and including 22” in diameter. Supplied with Rimblades wheel cleaning wipes and Rimblades adhesion promoters.
Available in 5 colours.
