Dry adhesives - are they any good?

greenspun.com : LUSENET : Black_and_White_Photography : One Thread

Lacking the money and space for a dry-mount press, and having heard horror stories about spray adhesives, I've started mounting my (RC) prints using dry adhesives which come in sheets. Letraset calls theirs "Studio Tack", I use Chartpak's version which is cheaper. Both claim to be "acid free" but I still wonder how good they are in the long haul and whether I dare mount fiber-base prints with the stuff. Suggestions please?
