rubber adhesives

Adhesives consisting of solutions of rubber and naphtha or carbon tetrachloride. They are used as temporary adhesives for paper or thin board. Upon drying, the film of rubber which remains has but little holding power, but is often sufficient for certain purposes. Their principal advantage is that the rubber film can readily be peeled off when it has served its purpose without damage to the surface of the adherend. (198 )
