I’m glueing my rubbers myself.  I’ve glued with Donic glue (white water based glue) and I used chacksheets (butterfly).

Now I’m using transparent glue. This was recommended to me by several better players, they don’t like the white glue. I’m not that good but I always follow good advise. The glue I bought is completely legal by the way, it’s also not some kind of not speedglue.

I wanted to test some combinations of blades and used rubbers and when pulling off and was wondering what to do with the different types of glue residue?


What I was told about removing glue: 

  • White glue always has to me removed before reglueing again but I never can’t really peel anything off. It seems to be in the sponge. Maybe I never enough glue?

  • Transparent glue doesn’t have to be removed. I don’t know if this is always the case.

  •  The glue off the chacksheet is a problem. I removed it from a fairly new rubber and the glue itself is really sticky, a real mess. Can’t be removed manually it seems without damaging the sponge so I think the rubber can’t really be used anymore… Or is there some product that will help rmeove it and don’t damage the sponge/rubber…?

Hi Thijs,

I think alcohol will help to remove some glues.  However if it is in the sponge it is difficult to remove it without effecting the properties of the rubber.

Perhaps others with some experience here will be able to help.
