How long do BD toys last?

Postby WildFire » Thu Nov 14, 2013 8:53 pm

I was curious...

How long do BD toys last? Do they start to deteriorate after a few years? Or could i conceivably have them forever. :stick:

As long as you don't do something to mess them up (like use the wrong lube) they should last nearly forever.

this is a question i also would like to have an answer from staff.
googling reveals that silicone is quite sturdy and used widely in construction and healthcare.

to give some examples, in construction it is used for bathroom caulks, in aquariums for the watertight joints and for breast implants.

You surely have experiencved that the caulks have 2-3 year maintenance period, which most often means complete replacement. but they are subjected to wetness and dirt all the time...
Breast implants are targeted for 10 years. in most cases after 8-10 years it needs to be replaced or removed.
Most operators of aquariums say, silicone is nearly indestructible.

If i do some totally pessimistic rough math and estimate my toys will "live" for about 10 years its still a extremely good price-vs-value. I think they will live much longer than us if you take minimal care of them, what i think, you'll do :fap:

take into account that breast implants have to endure the acidity of our body as well :3 (24/7)

Conceivably, these things should last practically forever. Platinum cure silicone is pretty tough material. I've seen the torture tests that someone put one through and the only damage I saw was that it had a tire mark on it (which came off with a bit of work) from trying to run it over.

Silicone breast implants are more of a liquid too, not the tough cured and fairly rigid stuff we get with these things.

BD used to have a 5 or 10 year warranty on the toys or something crazy...I forget its been so long, but pretty much for ever.

It was a 5 year warranty. I haven't gotten a custom order from them in a year so I don;t know if they still offer it. Do they?

They do, but it's only a 2-year warranty now.

We used to offer a 25-year warranty on our toys - and we meant it; it's a really tough, flexible, long-lasting material. A lot of the special effects used on movies like Jurassic Park were done using very similar silicones, including some at large theme parks, and many of them are still in daily use today.

The 25-year warranty got dropped down to 2 years at the behest of our attorneys - something about extended liabilities and having to keep the 'debt' on our books for the full 25 years or something. It sure wasn't dropped down because of the quality of the materials!

Woah, damn. That sounds like it would've been a bookkeeping nightmare. Good advice by your attorneys; keeping track of all of the customer tickets, order numbers, and invoices for 25 years would be ridiculous, especially if you plan on expanding further than your Arizona location. o_o

Thanks for getting back! I was worried since it had a 2yr warranty that it was only going to last a little over 2 years (and break down). We've all had items like that, its uncool.

But I can see why it was dropped down to 2 years, much better on your part. Thank you for making such high quality toys!

I believe that would fall into the "doing something to mess them up" category. :|
