      The rubber? I'm not sure what you're trying to ask here.

      I do not think the chemicals are readily available as a public info unless you are a chemist or chemical engr.

      I tried to find a blog series that I read several years ago, written by a physics Ph.D-student (I think) explaining various aspects of TT in a scientific manner. For example, whether to combine hard blades with soft, medium or hard rubbers; or why Chinese rubbers result in the highest amount of top-end spin, and so on. But for the life of me, I can't find it again.

      In that series, he stipulated that Chinese rubbers have a greater proportion of damaged polymers acting as 'fingers' (what makes them tacky/sticky) and grabbing onto the tiny indentations of TT balls, allowing for greater control when generating spin.

      Perhaps someone recognizes what I am talking about and could post the link here, provided it still exists?

      Can't find your article, and can't argue about "control while spinning". But the old ITTF sponsored studies pretty much concluded that tacky rubbers are crap, less spin and less speed:

      BTW, shout-out to Brokenball for referencing the ITTF Education website. Old articles, but a treasure trove of technical (and tactical) resources.

      Dr. Harry Fisher, US rubber expert, had been the first one to do it, back in 1932. Super-duper tacky rubber material.
      Unlike the sticky climbing shoes, table tennis rubber sheet is a ready-made vulcanizate plus some nitroso additives.

      I know the article you talk about as I read snippets of it on a UK TT equipment website...

      The web page I found it in was this...

      https://www.ttequipment.co.uk/equipm...-vs-non-tacky/

      That page does say the original authors website is unavailable. When you click the link it seems to say that the "thoughtsontabletennis" website is now private ?

      Brilliant. Thank you very much. I did try to contact the owner of the blog to see if we can get to access to it again since it was an excellent series.
