    Hello guys,

    I have recently purchased a MOSC Car Robots Indy Heat. Unfortunately the bubble it starting to come away from the card. What causes this? I imagine it might have something to do with temperature. And is there anything i can do to prevent it?

    Thank You

    There's a more scientific way to describe it, I'm sure, but basically, the glue dries out. Maybe the card warps from temperature variations during storage as well (changes in humidity also, it doesn't have to deform the card or make it bend, the invisible changes in the material over time are enough). Between these effects, the glue will eventually lose adhesion.

    Humidity is one culprit.

    don't forget uv too, it can deteriorate both the glue and the plastic bubble.
