The Andro Hexer, Donic Barracusa and Tenergy 05 all have porous sponges beneath the its topsheet. The porous sponges absorb more glue. The pressure layer generated between the rubber and blade can break easily if there is no enough glue to make the bond.
The water based glue does not help to make the bond strong on a single application. It requires some additional steps to make the Andro Hexer type rubbers fit well on a blade.
The following steps will help to generate greater bond.
1. Take the rubber out form the case and keep it for like 12 hours. Please don’t expose to open air. Keep in a racket case.
2. After 12 hours, put one layer of water based glue.
3. Wait for 5 minutes and put one more layer of water based glue.
4. Put a layer of glue on the blade.
5. Wait for 10 minutes until the glue is dry on both blade and rubber.
6. Put the rubber back on the blade now.
7. If you get a chance to hit with the blade, use it for 10 minutes.
8. Remove the rubber from the blade.
9. Put glue both on blade and rubber.
10. Wait for 10 minutes until the glue is dry.
11. Put rubber back on and you are ready to go.
Please avoid pressing hard the rubber on the blade by hand, roller or keeping under a stack of books. It is not also advisable to glue every day. Frequent gluing will change the behavior of some of these rubbers. Over time, the glue bond can dispose itself between the blade and the rubber. You can plan re-gluing with the same procedure after 3 weeks.
The water based glue does not increase the speed to the rubbers we have discussed here. This process helps the rubber to bond better with the blade, and consistent performance.Sponsor Ad: TableTennisStore.US - 1000 XIOM, TSP, JOOLA, CHAMPION table tennis products!
