    Not a teacher.

    I guess you can, but only if you're counting the tape in rolls. E.g. "The usage count is 2 rolls."

    That's not natural at all. Do you mean, "How many rolls of the reusable adhesive have we used?"

    No, I'm talking about how many times the reusable adhesive can be reused.

    Re: Can usage count be used here: Could you tell me the usage count for the reusable

    Then, "How many times can this adhesive be reused?"

    So, usage count is not okay then. What does it mean anyway?

    "Usage count" doesn't mean anything to me. It might have uses in specialised fields.

    How do you measure usage? The number of times used? Duration of use? Frequency of use?
