3M Nexcare Transpore Tape

A nice thing about the use of 3M Nexcare Transpore perforated PE medical tape is how firm it is when layered, even though it is slightly perforated which makes it a bit lower mass in nature than a non-perforated tape, and that a very thin but high tack medical grade adhesive backing is involved, without making the layers unstable from a mechanical POV. Audio connector set-screws can really dig into the layers to firmly grip the end of a cable without deforming the structure, while typical polyolefin heat shrink tubing is fairly soft in comparison. BTW, Herbie's Audio Lab's optional adhesive backing for their footers and pads is a rather expensive medical grade adhesive selected for its high tack but low mass properties.
