About pasting rubber on blade

when I do pasting my rubbers on the blade for 2nd time or 3rd time or so on... at 2nd time, after pulling off the rubber from blade, I see a sticky layer has been created on both the rubber sponge and blade surface. I don't know why this happens to only me in our club. at that time that layer is very hard to remove, because it is too much sticky. I don't know why this happens, I do the pasting after completely drying the glue on the sponge surface and blade surface. as it is very hard to remove (too much sticky), I do the pasting over this. and after one month again, I do the pasting again. so, when I pulled off the rubber from the blade, I found the sticky layer has been increased, but not easily removable (sticky like before and also in more amount). so, I again do the pasting over that. and after one month again, when I do the pasting again, I pull off the rubber and found the same sticky layer with more amount than the last time. if I found it is removable due to more amount than previous, I do remove it from both the blade and rubber sponge with a cloth in spite of having pain in my palm and finger. and after removal also, there remains a thin sticky layer which remains unclean able. as a result, again I do the pasting over this comparatively thin sticky layer. as a result my blade surface remains sticky always and loses its durability. as well as this thing affects the rubber also. I don't know why this shit happens only to me, don't know, if I am the only one who face this problem or it happens to another players also. and also don't know how to get rid off this. I use very fine, dense, VOC free glue for pasting, use butterfly joo saehyuk wooden blade and tibhar mxp rubber at one side, which requires pasting in every month.

please tell me how to get rid off this problem.

sorry, I have tried to upload an image of the sticky layer in my blade & rubber sponge, but it shows "error 404" or something else like that. I don't even know whether you have got my problem or not. if you understand it, please help me...

Hi Rajdeep,

Some of the glues act that way in particular and there is a lot of build up on the blade.  That type is really difficult to remove as it becomes very sticky and gooey.

I would ask the others which type of glue they are using and try to get that type.

Rajdeep,some glues leave a sticky material on the blade. I am not glue expert,but it happens to me as well.
I always need to manually rub the sticky remains down before I glue a new rubber.
Though I must admit that I change once per about 10-18 months according to my financial situation.

Regarding the error 404,that means "Resource unavailable".
How did you attempt to upload the image?

Alois Sir, my coach brings same glue for everyone in our club, but it is only me, who face this type of problem.

even my coach also has doubt and may even he also doesn't know, why this happens only with me...

D K, I use the same rubber almost 1 to 1.5 year, I also can't afford a new rubber very often. but I do pasting, i.e., every 1 month, I pull off the rubber (only one side, fore hand) and reglue it and paste it after drying as well. and I do the pasting of the other side almost after 6 month (i.e. feint long 2, 1.1).

bdw, you do manually rubbing! don't you feel intense pain in finger as well as palm? I do it with a cloth, but it is still painful.

about inserting image, I can't understand what is "source", "image description", "dimensions", "constrain proportions", "class", "responsive image', "caption".

and, finally, I can't understand how to insert the image(s) in this comment section.

To be honest I have no information about pasting,I know people using the very same rubber and they do not do pasting.
I personally do not see any point in pasting,but I am not any expert.

Regarding the image:
source = URL link of the picture. Describes location of the picture on the internet.
image description = short description of what the image contains. This should not be mandatory. Takes effect if you hold a mouse over the picture
dimensions = physical size of the picture,measured in pixels. Usually gets autofilled.
constraint proportions = this button causes that you can prevent distorting the picture. For example,if the real picture is 1000 pixels wide and 700 pixels high,you could edit it to 350 pixels of height. That distorts the image. If the "constraint proportion" checkbox is ticked,the width would be automatically recalculated so that the width:height ratio remains constant.
class = is the inner type of image. PingSkills page offers only one class,so I guess you do not need to know much more.
Responsive image is the only offered class of picture. Means that picture can be clicked and enlarged to its original size.
Caption is the name of the image. Usually takes effect if the picture for some reason cannot be displayed. Pingskills page seemingly allows to override this behavior.

Regarding the overall process of upload,it looks like PingSkills page allows only for inserting images which have a public internet link,meaning you have to upload it somewhere on the internet first. For close details I would maybe ask for advice of Jeff Plumb,as I think he is the one who manages this.

my coach advice me to do pasting the same rubber after several time. otherwise if it it too late, then the rubber will stick to the blade permanently. besides, the power of the rubber gradually becomes slower, and when I do pasting, the rubber anain becomes faster...

Hi Rajdeep,

I don't really think this is very important now with the new glues.  It sounds like it is more trouble than it is worth for you as well.  I would just leave it on.

are you sure, if I pull off the rubber after 1 to 1.5 year, the upper thin layer of the blade would not damaged, and not stick with the old rubber? D K or alois sir, anyone, please reply. If you ensure it wouldn't damage my blade, I would let it go...

Damaging the wood layer depends on the quality of the blade,its actual age,glue etc.
I have an experience that my rubbers go off with no damage after 1-1,5 years.
BTY Joo Sae hyuk blade is one of really high quality blades and as such its top layer is polished.
If you use proper glue for table tennis bats,there should be no problem,unless the blade is somehow cracked from hitting table/floor etc.

Hi Rajdeep, with regards to adding an image to the comment, as DK mentioned, you need to link to a photo that is already on the Internet. You could use a site like https://imgur.com/upload to upload and then reference the uploaded file.
