I was looking for a sealing tape for temporary jigs and as a closure
for rolls of book cloth. I contacted 3M and their recommendation is
a #8898 tape. Apparently it is used by appliance manufacturers to
secure loose parts on new products during shipping. It is designed
to release cleanly without leaving a residue. I have no idea of its
long-term aging properties.
