Question Sticky Rubber & Plastic on Bindings?

Hey Folks,

My board and bindings have been in a zipped up bag, in a mostly climate controlled place for about a year.

I just took everything out and the rubber and plastic on the bindings, which are Burton grip-fits. I've tried to use some Lysol wipes the clean off the stickiness. But, the sticky Stuff is very difficult to get off. (Attached pic has green arrows pointing to problem areas).

Anyone had this happen before? Any suggestions on what to do?

Many thanks for any wisdoms!

Ian

can you press your thumb nail into the plastic? does it leave a mark?

Yes. If I press the black plastic, it leaves my fingerprint in it.

What's that mean?

Generally with ski boots if you press your finger nail into the plastic and it leaves an indent... The plastic is no good.

I'm guess having them in a zip lock bag. If they got way hot. Or sun light.

Unfortunately most plastics will deteriorate over time. A bit of moisture/humidity would be a likely cause here.

Nah, it'd take at least 4 goes at it.

In all honesty it could be purely cosmetic but I personally wouldn't risk it if I thought the integrity of the binding was in question.

Maybe? Do you wanna trust a pair of gooey sticky binders?
You can try a drop test. Hold em up about 5 or 6 feet and drop them on the concrete. If they break... at least it wasn't with you in them. If not. YYou'll probably be OK
