We have used the Scotch transparent tape for many years to attach book jackets to books, here at our regional public library. It has worked wonderfully until we opened the first roll from our recent reorder. The tape is thinner, not as sticky, and more difficult to tear off of the tape dispenser.
The added effort to tear the tape off of the dispenser is going to slow down our overall rate of book processing, but what we are most concerned about is the possibility of our book jackets coming untaped because of the reduced adhesive power of the changed tape. Our books are used heavily, and we need sturdy, sticky tape to keep the covers on them.
Please let me know where I can purchase the industrial version of your transparent tape, because we are not confident that this newer version will hold up to the normal wear and tear of library use.
