flowable silicone


#1

once you put it on the bearing, what does it do?


(POLLO YOYO) #2

u dont put it on the bearing because it will completely mess up the bearing the silicone u put it where the response goes and it makes it unresponsive


(Shisaki) #3

You put it around the bearing where the silicone pads or friction stickers or w/e should be.


#4

oh


#5

It’s a replacement for other types of response. If you put it in the bearing, clean it immediately and you might be able to save it.


#6

When i put it in, Wait 4 hours, And then play, After maybe 1 hour it flakes off and its not complete. How do i fix this???


#7

Wait for 24 hours.

Could be a number of things, post a pic if you have one. Four hours is a bit short, overnight is usually enough. It could also be that you’re siliconing a yoyo that doesn’t have a deep enough groove to hold silicone, or the groove isn’t clean (oily) so the silicone won’t stick.

K also, On the flakey side, Do i need to resilicone it cause i dont wanna waste my silicon and 1 side is still perfect ???


#10

If the other side is still good, you don’t need to. I do both at once, because if one side went bad, the other is probably due to soon - and I don’t want to have to go through the process two nights in a row.


#11

Ok, Also when my other kentaro pad was still in, the response was fine unresponsive, Will the flakey side affect how tight the binds are cause i like how silicone binds are tight


#12

Ok i tried yoyoing with it, and it is going great, The only bad thing is that some throws its responsive, and with some throws its unresponsive, Anyone know the reason???


#13

Could be that “flakiness” is causing problems - if part of it is sticking up, use a sharp xacto knife to slice off the peaks. Hard to tell without actually seeing it though, exactly what you mean by “flakiness”.

ill upload a pic


#15

But i fixed the problem anyway and now it plays like a dream :smiley:
