I have been trying to get hold of American made Neumade splicing tape, as it is supposed to be superior to Jack Roe's product, but it appears not to be made any more.  I have come across another make, PEC, which is available in the UK.  Does anyone know if this is any good?  I need a tape which has archival permanence, as many of my films are old and need a certain amount of restoration.    Several films have come with weeping sticky tape, which I have had to clean off and replace and I do not want to have to do this again.  I do not have any particular complaints about Jack Roe's tape, as I have been using it for 35 years or so, but if there is anything better, I would like to try it.

Hi Exciterlamp.

I have had very good results with these.
Maybe you could order one to try it out!

Exciterlamp,

What do you use to remove the sticky remains of old splices?
I use white spirit ( refined petrol) and am very happy with the results.
Just a bit of that on an old but clean piece of cloth and you can wipe it off in a jiffy!!!  Grin

I use lighter fuel or WD40. I find that WD40 is particularly good but it is important to clean the film afterwards with a proprietary film cleaner as WD40 is a bit oily.  I will give white spirit a try.  And I will let you know what I think of the tape.

Exciterlamp

If you use WD40 the film gets oily and the tape won't stick.
If you use white spirit the film is grease-free and clean and the tape will hold perfect.
