On the tape subject.... Anyone know the correct tape to use to seal the
lids of specimen jars with alcohol in them? I'm tempted to use black
electrical tape but not sure if the alcohol fumes will mess with the
glue on the tape.
The purpose of the tape is to slow the evaporation that takes place even
with a threaded top.

Subject: Re: [SCIART] Archival tape for framing
Light Impressions has a good variety of archival stuff. I see in the
catalog I just pulled off my shelf that they do have linen tape "used by
photographers and museums", water-activated adhesive.
