I hope its not available in India. Have sent 3 mails to 3M last week, no reply yet. If you know KMD, he will get it for 250rs. a roll, but its out of stock now. Request him at TE.

OK, I have inquired again with KMD and he is ready to order them from US and it will be available for sale in 10 days. It cost you 275 per roll. Please contact KMD directly and confirm how many pieces you want.

I managed to get a free sample roll in 2004, v ery good quality stuff.

Remember to clean the area you will be using with an alcohol wipe or some alcohol on a bit of cloth.

Check in a unlikely place - the hardware stores. I have tried unsuccessfully for these tapes in big stationery stores & places like Big Bazaar etc. But chanced upon these in my local hardware store ..

Any idea about the length, breadth & thickness & the material it's made from?
Had called up the 3M, Kolkata representative after getting his number from the Bangalore office & was told that the product is not available here. This was more than a year ago & it seems the situation has not changed since then!
