What do paraffin oil, orange juice and marker board cleaner have in common? They are all used for tuning the table tennis rubbers by table tennis players. These are some alternatives used in place of tuner solutions that table tennis manufactures make for players.
I don’t recommend players to use any such solution. Some of those solutions contain volatile organic compounds (voc) which have short- and long-term adverse health effects. The ITTF has banned solutions having voc. It is like smoking - it is bad for the smokers as well as people surrounding them.
The application of tuners can spoil the rubber very fast. The tuners like paraffin oil can’t give consistant performance.
All the table tennis manufactures have tuners available. They are not expensive as well as not a health hazard - it does not contain any voc.Sponsor Ad: TableTennisStore.US - 1000 XIOM, TSP, JOOLA, CHAMPION table tennis products!
