I have use state board tape to fill in the grid on some PMags for grip. However I am having trouble getting them to stick. Anyone run into this and what adhesive would be safe to use on the PMags?

Isn't the grip tape already adhesive-backed?

I'd probably use a piece of double sided tape underneath and then superglue around the edges if I never wanted it to come off.

I'm assuming you cleaned the area you placed the skateboard tape on with something like alcohol or similar. I'm guess the the p-mags have some sort of mold release on them from manufacturing that is not giving the tape a good adhesion.

When I built model airplanes as a kid, you were to soak the plastic parts in mild dish soap and water before building. It removed the plastic release mold. I noticed when i painted my models after cleaning them with the dish soap the paint adhered much better.

It is adhesive backed 3M Tape. And I did use alcohol to clean before application. I was going to try some of the temporary spray adhesive but was afraid this would hurt the plastic.

You can also try sanding the area to provide a better surface for bonding.

I've had good luck with hot glue.
