For an international game, which has worldwide acceptance and following, the table tennis game has very rudimentary rules regarding the size, shape and construction of the table tennis paddles. In fact, there are no specifications about the materials that can or cannot be used for the manufacture of paddles. The game regulators are ok with the inclusion of any material into the table tennis paddles as long as 85% of the material used is wood. This had given the liberty to paddle manufacturers to experiment with various materials. The most popular and common extra materials included into the manufacturing of table tennis paddles include, fiberglass, Kevlar, coating, aluminum fiber, carbon fibers, etc. These materials are pasted onto the face of the paddles with the help of special glue. The paddle face or blade constitutes many layers of these materials but are always covered on top by a layer of rubber.
