Would this material...bounce?


Hello,

I have a DIY question regaurding common construction materials - might sounds a little weird though!

I am looking to build a homemade medicine ball (I know not typical forum topic but I need some experienced people's thoughts!)

Basically people cut a hole in a basketball and fill it with sand.

I was wondering is something like rubberized roof coating would work just as well, or would it crack when slammed (or not dry at all?)

Example - http://www.lowes.com/lowes/lkn?actio...-30&lpage=none

Sorry for the off topic questions but I was hoping someone here could help out!

Joe

PS. Any other material suggestions would be helpful as well - thanks!

Are you considering filling the ball with Black Jack? If So it will not cure. The solvents need to out gas for it to dry.

Other suggestions, hum... nope sorry.

Yes I as thinking about that - the curing issue popped in my mind last night.

Would I be able to pour it in part of the way, let cure, then repeat until its full? Or would the hole I put in the ball not be enough to let it cure.

Thanks for the response!

Joe

I have to be honest I'm not speaking from experience here, believe it or not I have never filled a basket ball with tar...lol

If your were to fill it in small amounts over time it may cure. But this material is not pourable it's to thick for that.

I think you may be misled by the term "rubberized" roof coating in the name. When cured this product does not resemble rubber in the bouncy ball sense. They are using rubber to imply flexibility and elasticity.
