What is this stuff?
Disassembling a machine last night for rebuild, the previous owner had mounted the FBL unit, ESC and other items with this crazy-sticky clear gel-type of mounting tape. The tape was clear (or almost clear), a bit thicker than 1/16", and unlike foam tape which tends to come off in thousands of bits, this stuff came off fairly cleanly if you gave it a slow, steady pull.

It had the absolute strongest bond of any mounting tape I've seen. I want to get more for future builds....anyone know what it is?

^^^^^Its good stuff, a little challenging to get the red plastic of the tape, I have learned to use an exacto knife to peel the red plastic off. Works for several applications.Bill Whittaker

As was mentioned, the hardest part about using this tape is getting the backing paper off. I use the blue backed black gyro tape from Heliproz.

Parma is the best mounting tape I've used to eliminate vibration getting to gyro/FBL system.

That's great guys, thanks....looks like the stuff. Vibration isolation is not my main concern, just trying for a better bond than the 3M tape or velcro. Velcro works fine for batteries and such where you have secondary restraints (straps) but no good for ESC, etc.

The gel tape is so tough I was concerned with delaminating the CF frames in my effort to remove the ESC (!)

Good stuff.

I have a roll of the clear 3M 4010 and was using the grey 3M 4011 (5 lbs) outdoor mounting tape, but my Meijer store now stock the 3M 414 20 lbs version of this tape, and that's what I'm using now.

I was at HD last night and didn't see it. But....this is more of a gel than a tape. It has no core or backing like tape. Think of Jello poured very thin, 1/16" to 1/8", onto a cookie tin and cut into little rectangles.

Unlike tape, the gel stuff comes off without residue. It may come off in pieces, but it does pull away cleanly if you get an edge and go slowly.

the parma stuff they are referring to is also a gel. if kept in a plastic bag will last for years. same exact product as the novak squares, but cheaper. you can also buy a product called zeal tape, that stuff really sticks but its thicker and more expensiveTeam Synergy, Team FBL Rotors-------if its not broke...it will be!

I suspect everything mentioned is 3M Very High Bond (VHB) tape. It's made in a variety of different types including clear. If you look at the link to the Novak product you can clearly see it's 3M VHB right in the picture.

I agree with Ace. Most of the products are all manufactured by 3M. The Zeal silicone gel and Align PE gel type "tapes" are likely not, but I suspect all the rest are just repackaged 3M products. The attached file is a list of the 3M VHB tapes. They are pretty amazing products. VHB tapes are used extensively in building construction and product assembly nowadays.

Now what is that stuff Jason? That looks too thick to me. Did you ever have issues with that gyro? It looks like a 770 3D?
