I went through the catalog looking for specific characteristics: 1)
high or excellent shear strength and 2) easy release. These are the
tapes I found (though there may be newer tapes and transfer adhesives
on the market):
400 Double-coated tissue tape. 50 oz/in adhesion. .13 mm thick
404 Double-coated tissue tape. 55 oz/in adhesion. .13 mm thick
410 Double-coated tissue tape. 50 oz/in adhesion. .11 mm thick
442 Double-coated film tape. 50 oz/in adhesion. .09 mm thick
947 Double-coated tape. 50 oz/in adhesion. .11 mm thick
I don't have the specs on the adhesive Boxcar is selling but
from my experience with it, I would certainly say it does the job.
To que in here on Bryon's question:
I wouldn't recommend these tapes or adhesives with steel-backed plates.
I assume the steel-backs were developed for magnetic plates? But I'd
also fear they would not release well without damaging the steel backing
(bending, kinks etc), but I'm just suspecting this as I've never used
steel-backs with film or transfer adhesives.
