I second this. It's good stuff. I even found an old bottle, that was half dried out, added some water from the tap and it worked great. It's 8 euro in the hardware store and the bottle lasts a year easy.

I'll use cream cheese if it works . . . the goal is to find less expensive, but effective and safe alternatives to overpriced table tennis glue.

The idea of using inexpensive Halloween latex glue is the absolute best solution among those that deserve the 2020 Cheapo award. 

If it works as well as TearMender, it's a winner.

I've been a Nittaku FineZip fan for years... and recently picked up a bottle of Revolution 3 glue. Wow. Took me a few rackets to get used to but it's great . Applies evenly and is self-leveling.

The best affordabe stuff for gluing works, some 11 USD Per Litre bottle.


/Be happy/

Actually, the milky white liquid one finds in the bottle is a heveya tree latex soap preserved with an ammonia additive. Excellent adhesive power.

I used something about 10+years ago . . . it came in a tub and spread on. It was white and non-toxic. I can't remember what it was. ;-0 It was sort of like the consistency of Elmer's Glue Sticks, but a little softer.

I'd love to try it . . . if it were 1/2 that price. That's a bit steep for less than 2oz. Still, we're grateful for the share.

Why isn't rubber cement the answer?  I even glue OX LP with Elmer's without using glue sheet.

Rubber Cement works good but is nasty toxic. My lungs can't even handle a particle of dust.

I am using Revolution 3.0 after seeing someone in my club remove the glue from his old rubber in about 20 seconds. You do have to use several layers.

Yes, its called Copydex. It comes from the UK but you can usually find it relatively inexpensively on ebay. It is thicker and more consistent than Tear Mender and has more ammonia content and so tends not to curdle on the blade. I've have received bad batches of Tear Mender before which is why I looked for an alternative and Copydex has been reliable so far.

To me it's all the same as that. Just varying degrees of how it's been handled. Aka heat, age, seal quality. I rarely use latex (no pun intended) but that's my impression

Please let me know if I can be of assistance.

industrial velcro. Makes it reasonably easy to EJ and if you hit the table and it comes loose it's all fine.
