The foam helps provide more spin and speed. The International Table Tennis Federation (ITTF) regulated the thickness of the foam + rubber layer to a maximum of 4 mm (1⁄6 inch) thick, which has been the regulation in table tennis since.
Likewise, people ask, what do the numbers on table tennis rubber mean?
A lower number means a softer sponge, a higher number means a firmer sponge. To give an idea, a rubber-band is around 25 and a car tire is around 80. Most table tennis rubbers will be between 30 and 45. A lower number will tend to provide more spin at lower speeds (including serves).
In this way, what is the stickiest table tennis rubber?

What is more important blade or rubber?
Post subject: Re: Whats more important, Rubber or Blade? The rubber is vastly more important. I mean you could go from long pips to T05 inverted. That’s a dramatic difference, it changes how you play entirely.
Depending on the thickness and density/hardness of the top sheet and sponge, together they contribute to the overall spin, speed and control of the ball.
Manufacturer’s estimate the ‘lifetime’ of a rubber to be 50 – 90 playing hours, but don’t panic! Most competitive players change their reverse or long pimple rubber within 12 months. Short pimples or anti spin rubbers last longer.
A general rule of thumb based on average length sessions 2-3 hours is, number of times played per week = number of changes per year. So if you play 2 times per week you should change no less than every 6 months if you are seriously training etc.
Apply a thin layer of table tennis glue evenly across the blade and the rubber sheet, then let both sides dry to a tacky feel. Position the rubber on the blade and roll with a roller or another round object like a bottle, or press down on it to get good adhesion.
