Platform Glue - £D Model Platforms

by CrazeUK

Hi Guys.

I am totally new to 3D printing, and managed to print 2 models successfully so far.
When i got my used machine the platform had 3 strips of tape stuck to it that the printer printed on. It seems to work successfully.
The tape needed to be removed so i replaced it with masking tape.

I have noticed on a recent print that the tape lifts off the platform as its printing.
Is this normal?
What should i be using?

I also use Pritt Stick ?(glue stick) on the tape to help with adhesion.
