The International Table Tennis Federation (ITTF) bans the use of speed glue on September 1, 2008. Worldwide, all table tennis equipment suppliers are forced to compensate quickly and comprehensively for the disadvantages which arise especially for professional players. TIBHAR designs the SPI-technology (Speed Effect Inside), present in its new rubbers, Nimbus and Sinus. The big problem of speed loss is compensated by a higher catapult effect of the sponge, which is additionally glued under a strong tension with the rubber surface.
