You've all probably received many of those promotional mailings where they include a nickel stuck to a card as an incentive to get you to do something or other. The adhesive is some sort of clear/translucent, rubbery stuff that holds the nickel well, but peels off easily.

What is that stuff? Is it a clear silicone? I need to make up some displays and I want to use something that has those properties.

Fugitive glue or in the business "booger glue".

Removable low-tack hot glue. Sometimes called gummy glue or fugitive glue.

For temporary mounts, a piece of rolled up blue painter's tape works fine unless there's a problem with it showing through the material.

Try these...

I've used similar products before. They stick well but are easily removed.

Actually the first step is to look on Craigslist for someone getting rid of an old horse and "adopt" it for greener pastures!  Wink

Wow. Not thought of rubber cement in a LONG time.

My Dad was a civil engineer/surveyor and it was used a LOT in the old days for mounting drawings, photographs, etc.

When my Dad was running his own business in the early 1980s he'd buy the stuff by the gallon can. Grandpa was also an engineer/surveyor... same thing. When I cleaned out their office at the house after my Dad died there were a bunch of old brush bottles of rubber cement, most of them the really old tins, with varying levels of dried rubber cement in them.

My guess is that with the advent of computers, rubber cement is virtually unknown in those professions anymore.

One of the things that the guys who worked for my Dad used to do was to collect the "spill over" dried cement and roll it into ever larger rubber balls. Not only were they fun to bounce but they also served as a very handy tool for picking up, or erasing, excess rubber cement from drawings.

The ones I used were maybe the thickness of a dime?

So I wondered about these "weak" adhesives like on Post-It or Sticky Notes.

          

So I looked it up:

Quote
No one set out to invent sticky notes. Instead, in 1968, Dr. Spencer Silver, a chemist at 3M Company, invented a unique, low-tack adhesive that would stick to things but also could be repositioned multiple times. He was trying to invent a super-strong adhesive, but he came up with a super-weak one instead.
https://www.wonderopolis.org/wonder/who-invented-sticky-notes

So how about that?

So now I know.

I always figured they were invented by somebody who noticed how stuff stuck to the bottom of your bare feet and took it from there.
