    Posted: 07/21/2022 at 5:02pm
Hello,

I have a DHS HL5 blade with DHS rubbers on both sides.  Recently small area of my forehand rubber
near the head started to 'peel' off.  Perhaps the vendor I bought the racket from did not do a good job on gluing the rubbers.  My racket is only 2.5 months old.  My question is this: do I have to buy glue specifically for DHS rubbers?  If no, can someone recommend a few glues/brands that I can use and hopefully would last longer?  This is my first time buying rubber glues for TT.

Thanks

You don't need glue specific for DHS rubbers. You can use any glue. 

You can also use glue not specific to table tennis. For all of my rubbers, I have been using elmers rubber cement, and it works perfectly. Its like $1.20 for a bottle at Target or Walmart. 

Tear Mender is also often recommended.

Oh, that's interesting to know.  I was doing some reading earlier and people talked about the types of rubber glues for TT and how they can affect the performance (speed, bounce and etc).   The more I read; the more confused I got.  So you've never noticed any impact in your games when you used Elmers' glue on your rubbers?

Some of the modern rubbers have oil in the sponge and shouldn't be glued with voc. Maybe most of them.

You're fine with h3 though.  However if there's already latex glue on there, roll it off first.

Make sure to let the rubber dry back flat if it domes

Any difficulty in removing the rubbers with the Elmer's glue you used?
