Permastik Indoor Mounting Tape: works on most indoor surfaces that are dry, clean and smooth.

None of the mounting tapes are recommended for use on wallpaper or delicate surfaces.
Please note certain surfaces will require priming or sealing such as porus surfaces, e.g.. plaster, concrete and also absorbent surfaces such as untreated timber and fabrics. Metals with oxidised surfaces such as aluminium, copper and brass may need priming or abrading. Low energy surfaces such as non-stick paints or polypropylene plastics containing aggressive plasticisers may also need treatment.
Mounting Tape is intended to be permanent, and removal may damage surfaces.
If you do wish to remove mounting tape we recommend using dental floss to gently cut through the foam substrate and remove the object from the surface. Stretch or peel off the remaining adhesive, use an adhesive solvent for best results.
