    Just wondering about using a hairdryer to speed up the process of gluing

    I've seen a lot of tutorials on how to glue rubbers and some of the videos i see are those who use a hairdryer to quickly turn the glue to transparent. Should the air from the hairdryer be warm or cold?

    I use a hair-dryer to speed up my gluing process, otherwise it takes revolution no. 3 about 15-20 minutes per layer in my high-humidity climate before I can apply the next layer. I use the lower-speed, lower-heat setting and haven't experienced any negatives.

    In my club is quite common to see someone rushing with a rubber to the toilets to speed up the drying process under the hand dryer

    I always use the lowest of the warm settings on the lowest strength and it has never caused any problems.

    That way you can't stretch the rubber while you glue it.

    I always use the cold setting because heat changes the rubber, it makes it softer. And even with the cold setting it takes only a few seconds to dry.

    "Heat" (as in highest setting, close to the rubber) surely ain´t a good idea.

    The lower settings from 10 cm distance for a few seconds are not even close to playing in a very warm hall, where over time temperature has an influence, albeit one that doesn´t last.

    However, at the end of the day you can´t go wrong with cold.

    What is the reason why we have to dry the glue? I have glued a lot of rubber using booster glues and water base glues, i dont dry them, i just put them together after putting the glue
