In the past, I've used duct tape on cables (e.g., Power, LAN). For instance, I taped cables to a wall, I taped cables together for storing etc.
The taping often failed after some time: The taping surface on the cable became covered with an extremely sticky film. This film was always very nasty to remove.
- Is there an alternative adhesive tape that works with cables? It should be strong enough to hold cables to a wall.
I'd also be interested in:
- Why doesn't duct tape work for cables? Is it the fault of plasticizers?
- Does the sticky film pose a health risk?
