    I recently bought the contents of a frame shop that had closed undisclosed number of years ago.
    It was in the back room of a business that has been active, at least most of the time, since the frame shop closed.

    There were a number of rolls of adhesive.
    Most of it was tiny and unlabeled, and is in the trash.
    There was one partial roll of Release Paper that looks fine.
    There were 2 nearly full rolls of adhesive that I had never heard of.

    I think I know the answer that I will be given, but here goes.
    What should I do with these rolls?
    Are they any good?
    Does anyone want them?

    Can't think of any reason they would go bad as they are heat activated.

    I'm still using a roll of heatseal film that is at least 10 years old. :rolleyes:

    I've got laminating film that is '80s vintage but I don't use it. That's why I've got it. o_O

    Any idea on what temperature to use? How long? Acid free?

    I've never heard of either adhesive.
