Hi Folks,

We have a collection of tapes that have sticky shed and we are baking and transferring them. Things are going as planned except for one tape. It is shredding into fine hair like stands. I thought it needed to be baked longer so I baked it a second time. Same problem. I have seen tape shed before and this looks different.

Any help identifying the problem is greatly appreciated.
