What is the black tape used in laptops to cable manage wires to the board?

What is the black tape used in laptops to cable manage wires to the board? When doing laptop repairs, mainly re-doing thermal paste, the tape that is used to cable manage on the motherboard doesn't re-stick well. They seem to be fabric backed. The best guess i can find is automotive wire loom tape. electrical tape will not stay adhered, and i refuse to use scotch tape. My concern using the automotive tape is the adhesive being too strong during later removal, damaging the board or leaving residue.

It's probably a certain electrical tape and the reason yours won't adhere is probably just because of dust

I might not know what I'm talking about but I'm gonna say it anyways

 

Try using the PSU Tier List!

i agree with James kapton(Polyimide) tape is what you want, non conductive, heat resistant and strong. for better adhesion make sure where your taping is clean and dry.
