Latex Tubing Stretching


#1

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


#2

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


#3

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.
