Duct tape is one of the most frequently used types of tapes, both at home and on the job. Duct tape was originally invented during World War II, and there have since been several variations and types of duct tapes created. While having options can be great, it can also be confusing. Shurtape, the producer of all Tape University material, has recently published an article discussing an easy solution to successfully determine which type of duct tape is appropriate to use based on the job a hand.
Shurtape has created a line of general purpose duct tapes, which range in sizes from 6 to 9 mils. The line of general purpose duct tapes was designed for everyday uses and offers easy handling and tearability, good conformability, and strong adhesion to a variety of surfaces. Each general purpose duct tape in the product line is constructed with Shurtape’s Polybonded CO-EX Technology®, a co-extrusion process during which polyethylene, cloth and adhesive are melded together in a single, high-temperature step. This creates a seamless, airtight construction which adds strength and prevents delamination failures.
From the article on Shurtape’s website: “Understanding the differences between the various duct tapes available – and how to pick the best tape for the job – could be the deciding factor between a sloppy rework and a job well done,” said Kelly Patrick, the product marketing manager for cloth and duct tapes at Shurtape.
