We usually use 3M 256 tape.  
(See:http://solutions.3m.com/wps/portal/3M/en_US/Manufacturing/Industry/Product-Catalog/Online-Catalog/?PC_7_RJH9U5230GE3E02LECFTDQGLE0_nid=GSZD1M9K4GgsVBZCZCKZL4gl2WQ3N5D0TXbl 
)

Also made by Permacel, Pro Tape, Alvin and others. Tends to dry out a 
bit after being applied for a long period of time, but great for short term.
