Re: [ARSCLIST] Hold Down Tape
The Grinch in me sees this discussion and harks back to research for
the AAA Committee that resulted in our recommending against the use
of any sort of hold-down or splicing tape (except for temporary use
of splicing tape to make or extend leaders that are too short for a
tape player) because of the danger of bleeding adhesives (and I've
never found any type of splicing or hold-down tape that did not bleed
goo onto tape surfaces or that was peelable without some sort of
deposit or damage). I wish my experience were more helpful, but facts

Try Economy Artist's Tape from Blick Art Supplies. Several years ago it was
approved for hold down purposes on core-wound motion picture film and and
reel-to-reel magnetic media at the National Archives.
