It will be even more illegal come July, but it certainly is fun. I did a similar thing with silicone spray (designed to reduce friction for some industrial purposes) a year ago, to see if I should spend the cash on frictionless pips.


Shoey please tell me where it says its illegal. I cannot see anywhere that says it. And if there is somewhere, why would the ITTF be considering a proposal to add a clause to the rules that says "it will be illegal to deliberately alter a rubber by chemical or physical means, blah, blah...".

Wow, Fosss, that looks scary, but I think it is illegal and I can see all the glue dripping. :wink:

Would one very thin layer do the same trick?

It may also be a good idea to spread out the glue on a non sticky surface(mirror) and then just dip the rubber with pips down into the glue. This would just cover the top of the pips I'd say.

Related to this, another good way to treat your pips is to use cockpit spray(the stuff car dealers use to make old interior look like new). I used it on some LP sheets, spread it out with a roller and it works great. One unexpected side effect was that the rubbers expand like crazy from the cockpit spray(which also seems to help to produce a more disturbing effect). One sheet of palio CK531 actually expanded so much it seperated from the sponge.

Speaking of modifications, is there any way to harden/soften a sponge?

you can use acetone to dilute the superglue.

I think Acetone is the correct thinner anyway :P. That's what my memory tells me. I don't know what will happen if you try and cut the superglue with other thinners.

hmmm

Wikipedia has an interesting article about it. Details some stuff about medical usage and other funky things you can do with it. This bit is relevant.

Acetone, which is sometimes found in nail polish remover, is a commonly available solvent capable of softening cured cyanoacrylate. Nitromethane is also an excellent solvent. Methylene chloride is the most effective but is toxic. Gamma-butyrolactone is also effective at removing superglue, and has low toxicity.


Funky things to do with superglue (according to wiki).

put it on cotton. Watch out for the fumes. = fire.

put it on baking soda = hard lightweight filler.
