I am going to buy a custom-made bat. I can have the custom-made racket assembled for no price, but it will be assembled with rubber cement, which contains VOC.
I will use water-based glue when I glue rubbers because it is legal. Can I use water-based glue on the blade after it has already had rubber cement used on it?
You can re-glue the rubber. However if you are only gluing again because of the VOC then I wouldn't bother at this stage.
The VOC can still stay in the rubber for a little while. Gluing it again will not get rid of the VOCs on there. The best thing is to leave the racket for a week or two and then the VOCs will tend to work their way out of the rubber. If you are not playing in any competitions in the weeks in between then there is no need to worry about it.
