Well I read the patent, if it is the same presentation. It is my opinion
that in some cases the backcoating is the bad actor or certainly contributes
to sticky shed problems. In particular the most severe cases where the paint
literally comes of the base - seems to sometimes be because the adhesion
between the backcoat and the binder is stronger then the binder and the
base. I have no research to support this - just based on some experience. I
am not convinced, however, that backcoating is the bad actor in most cases
as the patent claims.

some tapes that are back coated don't have the problem.
I'm sure all of you have experienced "Xerox" copies that welded themselves
So, Jim, do you have any further info on back coating's interaction or
do we all
wait for the paper at ARSC?
