Problem with acetone is, while it might not dissolve rubber or cause it to swell, it might be drying it out. They add emollients to NPR for a purpose, people don't like dry, cracked nails. So I'd choose not to use it unless a LOT of other people use it and report that it does no damage. One recommendation doesn't cut it unless it was a rubber and blade I didn't care about.


I don't think applying NPR /acetone using a foam end or cloth will allow the volatile liquid to get absorbed into the rubber sponge. You aren't pouring it on the rubber. You are pressing at the edges and under the glue. This allows you to easily peel back the rubber sheet without stretching or tearing it since the glue is no longer "sticky". I have NEVER seen any dryness or cracking or any kind of damage from removing rubbers this way! And note I am still using this EVERY TIME to remove rubbers from blades. It has been NEARLY SIX years of doing this. My rubbers have lasted close to 2 years or more and don't have any damage.

The real issue is glue that is too strong for use on table tennis rubbers. Just avoid them. There's a whole thread on water-based glues on this forum, just use the ones recommended or what you find doesn't damage rubbers and blades. Probably best to avoid latex body paint too (which Igor recommended). This was never an issue before water-based glues came along, back then everyone used rubber cement or branded stuff like Chack.


Even WBG glues can be too strong! Especially that Andro VOCfree glues! Tibhar CleanFix tends to be easier to deal with. Also the main reason to go the NPR / acetone way of removal is to NOT DAMAGE the rubber AND the blade! Try it on some cheap rubber/blade and you will see why I keep recommending this :-)

Not sure how it would work for removing table tennis rubbers (note the "non-acetone" wording) but it sure sounds painful. Something one associates with the Spanish Inquisition.. :lol:

It's the water based glues that are the problem. Just avoid the ones that are known to stick too hard. Better yet just use Elmer's rubber cement.
