    hi alan, welcome to the forum. all makes of fiba tape have their issues from time to time. the cold weather affects some and not others. i am using a batch of walls and ceilings fiba tape at the moment and it sticks fine, even if left for a day or two. be ware of just using any old tape. always get a sample befor you buy any amount. the fiba tape made by fiba tape is ment to be the best but in the end all the brands at some point seem to have their problems. send it back! non sticky tape is a nightmare, worse than bring the wife to work. as a get round you could try spotting a little gear at top and bottom that will prevent total head f#*k

    This happened regularly in the winter so I figured cold temperatures were the problem. If you have a heater, leave them nearby for a half hour before using as it can re-activate the glue on the scrim and make it sticky again.
