Abstract

This application examines the tack and work of adhesion of two different brands of clear mounting tape. The tapes were tested with the TA.XTPlus Texture Analyzer, Exponent software, Automated Linear Indexing Stage (ALIS), and TTC’s Automated Wet/Dry Cleaning Station. Strips of Scotch and Gorilla Clear Mounting Tapes were adhered to the underside of an ALIS TA-303 testing plate. The wet/dry cleaning station was positioned to the left hand side of the testing area on the ALIS.
