Welcome to dickblick
The Daige Rollataq Adhesive System changes the way you assemble presentations, affix photos, apply labels, and mount posters. It eliminates the need for spray adhesives, rubber cement, coated film, and dry mounting.
Rollataq requires no warm-up time and takes only a second to apply a clear, microthin film coating. The adhesive remains repositionable for 10 minutes. After burnishing, it dries to a strong permanent bond that will not crack, peel, or yellow. The non-toxic adhesive is safe for any work environment because the adhesive emits no fumes or odors.
No electricity is required, so you can use it anytime and anyplace. Just remove the cover and roll on a 2½" wide adhesive strip. Comes with a 2 oz bottle of Rollataq adhesive.
Acid-free adhesive refill.

Comments about Daige Rollataq Adhesive System:
I purchased the adhesive to mount digital photographs. I did not purchase the applicator as other reviewers noted it's tendency to clog. I simply brushed on the adhesive on the back of the photos to mount them. The adhesive works well and the only drawback was that using a liquid adhesive rather than a dry mounting technique caused the board I mounded the photos on to cup slightly as the adhesive dried. As I was framing them it was not a problem. I imagine applying weight to the boards as the glue dried would solve the cupping problem.
Bottom Line Yes, I would recommend this to a friend

Simple and not especially cheap but very effective

Works well for attaching photographs to note cards. Clean and adheres well.
Rollataq Adhesive Did Not Meet My Needs -
from Warren, NJ
I tried to use the Rollataq Adhesive to mount an inkjet print to a birch plywood artist's panel. The print could barely adhere after hours of drying time. The wood panel was not prepared in any way and was presumably porous as required by the product directions. The print has a plastic-like feel and is not porous. This should have been OK since the directions say that at least one of the surfaces needs to be porous - not both. I did not use the applicator offered with the product but I poured some on the panel and spread a thin film with a squeegee and rolled the result with a rubber brayer.Just to test the process but with a different at-hand adhesive, I tried Elmer's glue spread with a squeegee and rolled as before. Results of this test were positive - the print adhered very well.I had doubts about using Elmer's glue so I called Blick and they suggested Utrecht Acrylic Gloss Medium Gel. I applied the Utrecht as before and the results were excellent. It's easy to apply, is flexible and acid-free and should last a long time. I'm thinking about using this adhesive for some large prints (30"x40" and larger) in place of the 3M 568 Positionable Adhesive I have been using. The Utrecht is more positionable and forgiving. In addition the Utrecht looks to be scalable to most any size work and the mounting can be done single-handedly even at large sizes.I would have given the Rollataq a lower rating based on my experience but it probably is fine for some applications - just not mine.
Bottom Line No, I would not recommend this to a friend
Make sure paper is flat before gluing
from Omaha, NE
The rollataq was purchased for gluing 16x20 sheet of Wallis or UArt pastel paper down to a foam board. I used a rolled up ice of Wallis first, then glued it down to the foam board. I used a rubber Breyer afterwards to create a smooth finish. Biggest problem was curling of paper on sides, since glue takes a few minutes to set. Note to self: flatten out pastel paper before mounting on pastel board.I have used 3M spray glue in the past, although a mask needs to be used while applying. The Rollataq is a reasonable and easy to use alternative
Perfect for collaging.
from Baltimore MD
The Daige Rollataq Adhesive System spreads a uniform thin film of PVA glue on even your most delicate collage elements. The adhesive is acid free and archival quality so you know your collages will last. I can't think of a better way to glue 2-D paper elements.

making getting cards nd invitations. It is compact, great concept, tatable and great for on the run projects, easy to pack. It has to be cleaned after each use and before storing on the mechanisms jam and do not work properly.
how do I remove old glue from dispensing roller?
from Yountville, CA
Accompanying instructions are inadequate regarding long term storage, and cleaning for storage. I have 3 of these, 2 are useless because of dried glue on the roller I cannot remove. I expect this to happen again.
Merchant response: As long as you wipe off the roller and put the cover on the applicator, you can store without additional cleaning for up to three weeks. If the Rollataq will be unused for more than three weeks, you should remove the plug and drain the glue. Then rinse with hot water to remove any remaining adhesive. If you have further questions, please feel welcome to contact our Product Information Department for assistance. They're available from 8am to 5:30pm CST Monday through Friday, and they're happy to help! Just call 1-800-933-2542 or email email@example.com.
Supper reliable adhesive for paper
I use rollataq to glue prints down to panels and then I use encaustics over the surface of the print, so I expose the rollataq adhesive to a lot of heat and force and I have never once had a problem with it. I do not use the rollataq applicator. I use a low nap paint roller and that seems to work great for me. I do recommend using a brayer to make sure your print is really adhered down to the surface. All in all I think this product is amazing.
Quality & speed
from Bethlehem, Pa
Supper easy to order and quality items come faster than you expect.
Alternative to Dry Mounting and Spray Adhesives
I purchased this product to mount photos to foamcore. My experience is limited, but so far it has worked well. The key is cleaning the roller after use so it does not lock up. The system takes some practice, but is easy to use and economical compared to other mounting methods. It is much easier to use than spray adhesives which can be problematic as related to placement and repositioning the print. This Daige system allow repositioning and used a water based adhesive so is easy to clean any overflow.
