Considerably less tacky than the brand I have used for some years
on 5 March 2012
I had used a single brand in both tape and pad form for this product type for a number of years, mostly to stabilise smaller and lighter computer peripherals to a surface, preventing them from sliding. When unable to buy the preferred product, I had once selected another third-party branded product but found them to have little more adhesive capacity than a Post-It note! Sellotape is an established and respected brand and these are better but no match to my preferred brand.
It is difficult to be precise but these tape rolls appear to have about half the adhesive power of my previous brand, which appears to be no longer available. I have used a portion of one roll for the same purpose as that which exhausted my previous stock, namely to stick hubs and other light devices to the desktop. The weight of several cables can, and has, dragged a hub from the desktop and a tab or two at each corner usually solves the problem. this tape does the job, for about 20-30 minutes and then loses tack!
It may be useful to hang photographs if they are mounted on light board or plastic mounts and a mount-wide strip is used top, bottom and middle. With a medium tack, I cannot see much other use for them. I bought 3 rolls and should have bought one to try.
