Care & Maintenance of Rubber Dumbbells

CARE & MAINTENANCE OF IVANKO RUBBER ENCASED DUMBBELLS.

  • Apply SP-80 Cleaner (blue bottle) directly on to rubber. Start on one side of the dumbbell.
  • Work into rubber with a rag by wiping down all areas liberally.
  • Leave a light coat of cleaner to soak into rubber on one side of the dumbbell. Then go to the other side and begin the same procedures 1 and 2.
  • Wipe the first clean side of extra SP-80 Cleaner
  • This procedure should be done as normal maintenance, maybe every 30-60 days depending on the size of the club.
  • After wiping off all the SP-80 Cleaner, then apply the SP-80 Conditioner  (black label). Follow the same steps 1 thru 4.
  • You can purchase SP-80 Cleaner and Conditioner through our website.  It works for all Ivanko rubber products, including plates.

INSTRUCTIONS FOR APPLYING BRASS NO. PLATES TO RUBBER END-PLATES.

  • It is important to follow these instructions so that the numbers do not fall off.
  • Rough up the recessed area where the numbers go by sanding it with a fine grit sandpaper.
  • Clean the area with a little lacquer thinner.
  • Remove the backing from the numbers and liberally apply super glue in the recessed area.
  • Put a few drops of super glue on the backs of the numbers.
  • Press the numbers into the recessed area.
  • After the number has set (about 24 hrs.) you can remove the protective shield on the front of the brass plate, which is there to prevent oxidation and scratches.
