Latex Tubing Stretching


Does latex tubing stretch? Our puncher has been working well for the past 2 weeks but it stopped working today. We have had problems with this when we used rubber bands since they stretched so we switched


Latex tubing is extremely elastic, so to answer your question yes


I think they’re asking if latex tubing gets worn out over use, and the answer is yes, as do rubber bands. I suggest tuning your launcher with fresh rubber bands so if you replace them before or during a comp, you don’t need to re-tune it.


just like rubber bands, they do get worn out but it takes a lot longer for the latex to to ware out compared to the regular rubber bands.
