When installing it is of course useful to label the wires to avoid having to trace them when modifications become necessary. I was wondering what people are using for this.
The following solutions I found unsatisfactory:
isolation tape: the glue is too "liquid"/"soft" causing the tape to slide on the wire and leave sticky residue. Also it tends to become even softer in warm environments and falls off over the span of a few years.
brown packing tape: while a good solution short term, the glue becomes hard and pulverises over the span of a few years causing the labels to fall off
