Since Bungy Jumping emerged in the 80’s as an extreme exciting sport there have been many changes and advancements in the manufacture of Bungy Cords. The original cords used, were really not very forgiving on the body and the lifespan of ropes was severely limited.
Thailand is one of the leading producers worldwide of latex rubber, we are fortunate in that we have a large ready supply of base materials and an extrusion plant just 40 kilometers from our jump site where we can inspect and check the manufacture of the raw extruded latex following the process almost from the time it leaves the tree!
Not all latex is created equal. Whilst the rubber maybe the same regardless, the thread count, count number and post production process treatments vary widely. Latex only has a shelf life for Bungy Jumping of 12 months, so an important part of the process is ensuring that your raw material is as fresh as possible, this gives you the longest possible shelf life for your Bungy Cords. Unlike other manufacturers, we guarantee that when you receive your cords the time from tree to your jump site is never more than three months.
We purchase rubber in huge quantities extruded to our specific requirements, coating it with Silicon to decrease friction between strands making for a longer production life and safer ropes for your customers. This allows us to ensure that the rubber provides as much consistency as possible. It all comes from the same batch and is specifically made for us, we never have to rely on using stock rubber originally destined for making underwear.
