    Excellent high quality tape

    posted by OzTrev on 09/01/2011

    Involvement:Expert (understands the inner workings) - Ownership:1 week to 1 month

    Pros:
    * The tape is heat resistant to 305C (tested with SMD hot air tool) * The quality of this tape is surprisingly good given the low price * The low price cannot be beaten!
    Cons:
    * The tape is sticky, but perhaps not quite as sticky as brand name tape which costs six to ten times more! Sticky enough though.
