      Rubber storage?

      Hello, so I was wondering what would happen to a rubber that is cut and glued on but never played with. Will all rubbers naturally fade after a while or is there some way to prevent this.

      Oxidation happens. Use an stick foil protector and always keep your rubber away from the sun and heat.

      Sponge boosting will dissipate causing it to shrink. Surface will oxidize and loose grip over time.

      In general it is a bad thing. Even unglued rubbers would probably be better if they were vacuum packed.

      Is there a way to reverse oxidization process?

      Even with a vacuum packaging i do not think it is possible.

      Back in the day I tried olive oil, spinmax etc. Only spinmax sort of works, but that's only delaying the inevitable. We have to accept that rubbers are consumables.

      It should be ok to use it again. Just make sure is kept in a cool dry place and away from the heat. I was told that if you are not using the rubber is best to remove it from the blade. From my experience I had a Tenergy rubber glued to the blade for a few years and left it as that and is still playable.
      Cheers mate!
