    I am a conservation student at the university of Canberra who is
    doing a research project on the stability of hook and loop
    fasteners for use in conservation.  I am wishing to compare
    products from different manufacturers but unfortunately I am
    having some trouble getting samples of certain 3M products and
    need them urgently.

    I was wondering if anyone has rolls of the following products
    and if they could provide me with a sample.I would be quite
    happy to pay for the cost of the tapes and the postage.

    The products are:

    *   Scotchmate plain sew on hook and loop fastener (in white)

    *   Scotchmate VHB acrylic adhesive hook and loop fastener (in

    *   Dual lock: plain (in black)

    *   Dual lock (black) with VHB acrylic adhesive

    Ideally I would like about 3 meters of each project to complete
    all of my analysis.  But even a small amount of about 10 cm
    would help.
