What kind of adhesive is that?

I have big question on this video.

on this video clip, how come they can paste and peel strips again and again without damage base paper or the strip materials? If strips are already adhesived on back ,like sticker, why those unused strips piled up do not stick with each other?

Thank you

    You would have to ask this question to the original presenter. This is the general forum and the person who can answer this question is not likely to see it here. Please go to the presentation and check the selection for questions.

    Can you tell us which video you are referring to Stanchen. If you are not sure where to find it we could find it for you and answer your question.

  • I agree, you will need to ask on the original video, but it sounds like it may be double-sided tape. The liner on one side would keep it from sticking together.

    Hi there, in the search box you may be able to find the video/project here on Hometalk. The search is in the left upper hand corner, hope that helps!

    The strips are adhesive backed. The white paper is peeled off to stick them on the substrate. They don't stick well until they are rubbed down by hand. The piled strips still have the paper on them. It's peeled off when a color and grain strip is chosen to be put down. I would assume that when everything is down they would go over the whole surface with a rubber J roller to make sure there is a good bond. Similar to gluing laminate.
