Bumper Plates Left in Rain


Can i safely leavy my bumper plates in the rain without ruining them?


Not sure why this is in powerlifting but unless the inserts are stainless steel it wouldn’t be a wise move.


Sorry just thought I would get a response here. I think it is stainless steel . I will test it with a magnet.


I would not do that.


I brought them inside . I will have to get a space for them in the garage. It’s been dry here for a few days.


I can hear my dad now “take care of your things!”

Also most stainless steels will attract a magnet as they are Fe based with Chrome and Magnesium to prevent oxidation.
