There's this...  http://www.markertek.com/Chemicals-Cleaning-Supplies/Chemicals-and-Maintenance/Caig-Laboratories-Inc/RBR100L-2.xhtml?RBR100L-2

MSDS Here





I've not used the Caig variety myself since I still have a bottle of Tascam/Teac Rubber Cleaner that they used to sell for use on pinch rollers which I've also used on rubberized shuttle knobs that became sticky and it did help.

I have an old Sony D3 DAT that has this issue on the little rubber bumpers on the edge of the unit.

Never really tried to clean it...but I might now.

Hi!

My R09HR's rubber finish is becoming sticky. Probably, rubber particles are starting to dissolve. Is there any way of stopping dissolution, or to recover from this situation?

Thanks.
Best regards.

The exact same thing is happening to my unit. It's all sticky and gummy. Have you heard from Roland Brasil at all?

Both natural and synthetic rubber (bio)degrade over time. You can clean off the degraded sticky stuff with ammonia or probably the Windex that has ammonia in it. Unfortunately once it starts degrading it will keep degrading.

I have a rubber case that covers my R05 that tore in 3 places. I wanted to repair the tears, but I couldn't find anything to adhere to it. I finally tried a bicycle tire tube patch, which worked great. It adheres to the rubber and gives it a non tacky finish. It also was very thin, so it didn't add any thickness to the case. I only needed three small pieces, but if I were to try an save my deck, I'd test a piece on the side or somewhere first, but assuming I liked the results, it probably wouldn't be too tough to buy a larger patch, cut to fit, and apply that as a new coating. It has an adhesive on one side and you peel and stick. Some of the other solutions would seem like they'd eventually ooze some sort of stickiness, the bicycle patch becomes part of the rubber, so it seems less likely to degrade over time.

Since posting a couple years ago, I've completely removed highly-degraded/sticky rubberized coatings from a few other pieces of gear using a rag, denatured alcohol and elbow-grease.  In each case, I ended up with a smooth, black, hard-plastic surface with a perfectly acceptable finish without any remaining rubberized coating.  I speculate that the extensive degradation of the coatings to the point where they had become quite soft/sticky may have actually made their removal easier than it may have been when in better condition with it better adhered. YMMV.

I just sent an email to Roland Brasil.


Let's see what they say.


Thanks.
Regards.
Have you ever got a response from Roland? I just saw that apparently the R-09HR has been discontinued. Wonder if this issue had anything to do with their decision? I've owned mine since '09, kept ou it in a small Ziploc bag, without any problems, until about a year and a half ago. I think the reason it was designed this way, was to make it  slip-proof, and they way it is now, they did a pretty good job...lol

As I was cleaning out my closet I found my Edirol R09HR and it was a sticky mess.  I used Goo Gone, and the Goo is Gone.  With minimal effort I was able to wipe down the entire R09 and the rubbery stickyness is completely gone.
