Default Carbon fibre/Graphite questions

Hi ya all
I was wanting to stick some stuff on CF/graphite plates.
What is the best adhesive to do so?
with
1.high adhesion and little residue when removed.
2.thin application ,maybe less than 0.5mm.This leaves out shoo-goo.

I know CA is bad since it'll crystalize and stick.
Thanks for all the suggestions,and please help

3M has a great double side tape that will out-do all others. It is clear/red and sticks very very well with no residue...im not sure where to get it but you can look for it from my description...so i wasnt enough help on that part

The tape hes referring to is probably VHB. Its what they use in the automotive industry to stick on molding and other small pieces of trim. Thats pretty much all I use to stick my electronics down.

the stuff we use in the automotive industry (own a bodyshop) is a foam type. The stuff i am talkin about you can get as part number 4010 its extremely sticky and will hold anything down

Default 3M red automotive tape

They sell it at Wal-mart. I always thought that it was too aggressive to mount electronics in RC cars, like you would never get the electronics off, if you needed to remount them. If it is different than what I have stated, post your experience with mounting electronics with automotive tape, especially your experience with remounting electronics.

Yeah.........And the stuff Im talking about is called VHB (very high bond#4910) which is used in most automotive shops.(i guess not yours). I work at and interior/exterior sign shop and use the stuff all the time............. You can also get it in black or even white........... And its NOT foam tape, we also use plent of foam tape too.......

Remounting Isnt that hard. Instead of pulling up on the part ,twist it and lighty pull up at the same time.

Yeah we use the foam tape like 90% of car mfg's to mount moldings and emblems etc..im sure not too many people will want to pay 30-50 bucks for a roll of tape thought...vhb is expensive where as the others arent
