Product Description

Duck Brand T-REX Duct Tape is a 17 mil thick ferociously strong specialty-grade cloth metallic silver duct tape. A double layer of quick stick adhesive is combined with extra strong cloth and a durable waterproof film layer to create the solution for all of your toughest repairs. Typical applications of TREX Duct Tape include bonding to rough surfaces; heavy repairs; and for use as bottom board tape in manufacturing housing.

Duck Brand/Shurtech makes the tape in 3 layers. Layer 1 is the tough, thick polyethylene skin which repels even the harshest elements. Layer 2 is the thick heavy thread which is tightly and securely interwoven which creates a reinforced inner cloth. Then layer 3 is the double-adhesive which melts through layer 2 and locks onto layer 1 via co-extrusion. It equates to 4x the staying power, 3x the holding power, and 2x the bite of regular duct tapes. TREX comes with Shurtech's Polyblended CO-EX technology with is a co-extrusion process which melds polyethylene, cloth and adhesive in a single, high-temperature step which results in a permanent, airtight bond (creates added strength which will not delaminate). Country of Origin: United States.

* Multiple cases may be shipped per package in order to minimize the charge for shipping.

Question & Answers

[ viewing questions 1 through 3 of 3 total ]
Customer Dec 17, 2017
QUESTION: Description says "extreme temperature". Can someone define by degrees?
ANSWER: Thank you for your question! The tape has a temperature rating of 50°F - 200°F.
Customer Jun 23, 2017
QUESTION: Will this seal underwater in pool?
ANSWER: To get the best waterproofing performance from T-Rex Tape, we recommend applying the tape to a dry surface. This may provide a temporary repair, but if you are treating the pool with any chemicals, the chemicals may wear down the tape and adhesive over time.
Customer May 28, 2017
QUESTION: Can you repair a suitcase handle with this tape?
ANSWER: Yes! It is very strong and I used it to repair the plastic cover on my cars suspension and it's still holding strong even in wet weather.

T-REX Original Original Duct Tape
This tape and its price really suits our needs.
Made in the USA
hot melt rubber (synthetic)
Offers the widest range of application flexibility available. Exhibits excellent processing performance whether manually or automatically applied. Has superior tensile strength, adhesion properties and holding force which ensures consistent, reliable seals. Hot melt adhesive will bond faster to a surface which is referred to as quick-grab or quick-stick. It typically has higher tack (will feel stickier to the touch), but is also softer. It has lower heat resistance, shear resistance, and sometimes UV resistance than an acrylic adhesive. NOTE: it is called hot melt because the adhesive is applied hot by the manufacturer and then hardens as it cools (you do not need to apply heat to the tape yourself).
natural rubber
Properties are similar to that of hot melt rubber, but natural rubber often holds where other adhesives won't (recycled fibers, dust, cold, heat and heavy loads). It provides good overall adhesion and moisture resistance.
Offer excellent performance, especially for applications in temperatures less than 40°F and greater then 120°F. It provides excellent clarity, has high shear strength, is usually more permanent/durable even when exposed to moisture, and it ages well over extended periods in fluorescent and sunlight. Since it remains clear for the life of the application and does not yellow over time it is ideal for applications such as sealing white cartons. While it has good initial adhesion it does take 24-48 hours to cure and to achieve its maximum bond strength (has gradual adhesion buildup). Another difference between hot melt rubber and acrylic adhesive is if you fold tape over making the two adhesive sides touch the acrylic adhesive will remain attached to the carrier (e.g. paper, film) while a hot melt adhesive will stick to itself and pull off of the carrier. It is the best choice for clarity, UV resistance and aging characteristics.
Is great for extreme temperature applications since silicone adhesive can work in continuous operating temperatures from -100°F to 500°F. They also exhibit good chemical resistance, retain electrical properties, and remove cleanly with little or no residue.
zinc oxide
Zinc oxide based adhesive formula is a skin-friendly adhesive which is commonly used on sports medicine tapes.
Thickness, AKA caliper or gauge, refers to the distance from one surface of a tape backing, or adhesive, to the other.
1 mil = 1/1000 of an inch
Examples: 1/16 inch = 62.5 mils; 1/32 inch = 31.25 mils
The cut level indicates how many grams of cutting load a glove can withstand from a sharp blade before being penetrated.
Lower gauge gloves are heavier - have thicker construction, fewer stiches knitted per inch and offer less dexterity.
Higher gauge gloves are lighter - have thinner/finer construction, more stitches knitted per inch and offer more dexterity.
Gloves offered typically runs from 7 to 18 (12 and 13 are in the middle of the scale).
