Non-permanent adhesive for corner traps

Postby sonicparticle » Tue Nov 08, 2011 6:48 pm

Hello

Could someone recommend a non-permanent adhesive solution for corner bass traps? I need to mount them between a ceiling and a wall.

They are foam-based corner traps made by this company called com4tex. They are their "AFBTX" model. Is anyone using them? A link is here.

Thanks all

I have been thinking about this recently. I was thinking something like this

Tesa Strips

but I don't know how strong the bond would be. I expect you would need quite a few to hold up a wood framed trap. Not sure if there are details on the site as to what weight each one can hold, but it might be there somewhere. Or drop them an email.

Unfortunately Tesa strips or velcro contain non foam-adhesive qualities.

At any rate, I had some spare temp-tabs, superglued them on the foam, used some velcro strips from my local DIY shop and for the time being gravity doesn't seem to be a problem.

Will see in due time if they'll hold up!

When you say non-permanent, do you mean that you want to be able to get whatever it is off the trap, or off the wall? Or would you be happy for both trap and wall to have stuff stuck on them provided the trap could be taken down?

I think your best bet is something like clear silicone sealant which should quite easily peel off at a later stage without taking half the wall, or half the trap with it like glue does. But of course it really depends what the surface of the wall/ceiling is like. It might get damaged if that's a concern. Also, whether the trap will stay put depends on what sort of contact it can make with the surface concerned. Ultimately something is going to have to stick to something else. I suppose you could glue the traps onto a thin sheet of MDF or perspex or something which you then attach to the wall or ceiling with hooks.

silicone acetate (bathroom sealant that smells like vinegar as opposed to ammonia)


peels off painted walls with a little rubbing .... sticks foam up no problem.

I use it all the time....
