Questions & Answers

Do you have a book tape that doesn't contain acid?

I did a search on the 3M site for acid-free products, but it did not bring up this product.

What is the purpose of this attachment? Can it be used to reattach pages that have fallen out of books?

Without a doubt. About six years ago, I was hired into the same role. The last two years, I have repaired at least 20 book pages, almost as many To fold the tape along the binding, fold the book closed to crease the tape. Put the page where it needs to be and tape both sides to the page next to it.

The user of this tape states that it has yellowed, blistered, and cracked over a period of 15 years. What is the best archive repair tape to use?

Music album covers and jackets are the only things I have repaired with this tape. An archivist should be consulted when serious repairs need to be made to books.

Would it be okay to put the type on the back of ribbon so the icing won't stain it? I am making a wedding cake with ribbon. Would it work to put the type on the back of ?

I believe it would certainly keep the icing from staining, but I am not sure if it would be easy to make a ribbon with this tape on the back of it. There is a lot of strength in the tape.

Selected User Reviews For 3M Scotch(R) Book Tape 845, 1-1/2 Inches x 15 Yards (7382)

It is necessary for anyone who uses printed manuals to use 3M 845 tape
5/5

There is little knowledge of this product, except perhaps among If you place a piece of this tape down the spine of your printed manual, or any other paperback book or brochure, the book or brochure will last for decades. I've been using it for many years, and I have not seen any yellowing or cracking of the tape. You can practice on an old shirt, but remember that it's harder to put it on than it looks.

During a power outage, the book tapes save the day The Book is the same
5/5

The school I work at doesn't have a lot of resources, so I work as an Early Literacy Volunteer. Our library consists of old books, many of which have been discarded from other schools. Thus, the covers and pages of the books are stained and ripped, and the endings are falling apart. I go home to repair the books. A few of my go-to tools include Elmer's Glue and Scotch Book Tape A tool. Besides giving the books another few years of life, the children are delighted to be able to read their favorite books again and again because I can fix them for them.

Antiquarian book readers will find this tape useful
4/5

This tape is not well known by most people, but is what you need for antiquarian books of any kind that are literally coming apart as they are being handled. This is one of the things librarians research. I have only one complaint with it it is a bit difficult to bend.

A quality product
5/5

My experience with this book repair tape is that I bought it again without hesitation, after using it in the past. Make sure it is perfectly aligned. Works quite well as long as you make sure it does what it says.

This book tape is a must have
5/5

Our tests showed that several brands were either too sticky or didn't stay well. As we expected, this results in the most desirable outcome.

The tape adheres well and continues to be clear for a long time! It is the first tape I have purchased for about 20 years and I find it very enjoyable
5/5

As a teacher, I used to use it to repair books and to put it on the bindings of all my new paperbacks, which made them last longer and were much stronger. I pulled some of these from storage after 20 years and the tape is still adherent and clear, in fact, it looks like it just came from the store. In addition to repairing other items with this tape, I use it for other purposes that require a strong, clear tape. I also use it to label little bottles with the toiletries I bring with me when I This tape is water-resistant and I can even use it on the cap of In addition to this, the tape has a slight stretch, making it easier to conform to contours. I'm in love with.

She uses this to fix school books for her wife who is a teacher
5/5

The tape is nice and thick. As for the roll, it has hardly anything on it and is pricey, but does the job for kids with heavy The tape I use for fixing books at home (standard shipping tape) is much thinner and well suited for a less heavy duty application.
