I have some super sticky tape, can't seem to buy a tape dispenser for it as the tape is 150mm wide. So I was just going to make one, but I don't want the tape to stick to the roller I intend to use. Do any of you guys know of a easily available coating that will stop the tape adhering to the roller? Did a quick google search and it was a bit industrial or all about frying pans.

TIA

Maybe make the roller from PTFE rod? Cost may be an issue but maybe beg an offcut from one of many suppliers e.g.
http://www.directplasticsonline.co.uk/PTFERod.

Or experiment using PTFE tape (as used by plumbers - much cheaper) wrapped around a wooden roller and pinned to the roller?

Thanks Mike, I think I have some PTFE sheeting I can test and see if the tape sticks to that, and if it doesn't that should be the solution sorted! .
