Re: [BKARTS] Tombo Adhesive



That is quite different from the Pritt by Henkel I wrote about which
distributes an adhesive strip on release paper, in a roll. The roll or coil
of release paper with adhesive (effectively double-sided) goes into an
applicator which feeds the release paper tape out of an opening and onto
wherever you want it to go onto.  I haven't had the problems with this
product which others have mentioned with similar products, like twisting and
getting jammed, etc.

Tombo sounds interesting.

Subject: Tombo Adhesive

The Tombo adhesive I have had on my work desk for at least 2 years is not a
double faced tape. The container is double ended - one end is a pen tip
which dispenses a viscous liquid not unlike PVA in a narrow bead while the
other end is a broad tip for wider application. It is temporary or permanent
according to the method of application. For temporary adhesion, apply the
adhesive and allow to dry thoroughly.Then position and reposition as you
need.  For permanent adhesion, position when wet and allow to dry.

As I said I haven't used the bottle for at least two years and have
forgotten what I used it for. When I tested it just now, I was surprised to
find it still works, the glue has not dried and still flows just as it did
when new, in contrast to glue sticks supposed to be archival which are
unusable in a short time, probably because I don't use them very often and
it's too hard for me to remember to put the cap back on.
