tip-in adhesive



Tip-in adhesive:

Have you tried the Rollataq adhesive system by Diage?  They have a small
hand applicator which does not use electricity and a larger powered
roller machine for doing posters, photos, and such.  According to the
description in the Light Impresssions catalog, "the adhesive is
completely non-toxic, does not emit hazardous fumes or odors, and is
acid-free." (p. 72)  The adhesive is a thin white liquid that looks a lot
like PVA.  It is not tacky, so you do have a small window for
repositioning.  There is little if any curl, surprisingly, and this can
easily be overcome by placing the glued item under a bit of weight.  I
have no idea whether it is reversible.  I've also seen it in the Dick
Blick catalog.

Has anyone else tried it?
