It's a special-purpose tape. It makes no sense for 99% of your duct tape adventures. But if you need a thicker, nastier adhesive, and a waterproof plastic exterior, 3M has your back with this stuff.
- - - Adhesive - - -
It has a vile odor, which I take as a good sign. It's probably based on rare substances from that planet in the movie Avatar. Either way, the State of California will soon determine that it is HAZARDOUS TO YOUR HEALTH. (Capitals should be shouted.)
It's fairly thick and soft. It does stick to concrete.
This is the kind of adhesive you want on your side in a tough situation. Just make sure it's locked up when you go to bed.
- - - The Shiny Side - - -
The waterproof shiny side is glossy, and polyethylene based, according to 3M. I feels like polyethylene.
- - - Compared to Gorilla Tape - - -
The excitement over this very macho tape kind of fizzles once you put Gorilla tape next to it.
Here is what I noticed:
::Advantage 3M 6969::
- Price. If you wait for price dips, this stuff is commonly $ .17 per yard vs $ .29 for Gorilla. ($10 for 60 yards vs $10 for 35 yards) (See Pricing below.)
- Available in silver and Black
- Available in smaller rolls. (35 yard vs 60 yard). For homeowners, this makes Gorilla tape just as cheap if 60 yards is more than you'll ever use.
- Abrasion resistance. I took a file to both tapes. Gorilla's thicker (16-mil) vinyl-like material held up better than the thinner (10-mil) polyethylene based 3M tape

This tape is designed for situations in which there may be issues with adhesion, particularly due to moisture. It's also designed to be torn by hand, but still strong. My feeling is that this is the sort of thing professionals are served better by than consumers, but if you've got a job in your wet basement and you want tape that is going to hold, this is almost certainly worth the extra expense. It should be noted, however, that this is a lot of tape and the shelf life is supposed to be one year. That makes it sound a bit like "use it or lose it" and, given the cost, it's a bit of an investment. For me, I used it on a leaky pipe under my kitchen sink to stop it from ruining the floor of the shelf while I waited for the landlord to do something else with the problem (a situation which can take quite some time to resolve). It did a stellar job, and the pipe still isn't fixed. :-p
According to 3M, one of the uses for this grade of tape is "aerospace" (along with public transportation and other more earthly uses). I'd say that if you want something to cover your sofa as an artistic statement or make a Halloween costume, this isn't your roll of tape. If it's a really important job in which your tape's failure may cost you money or create a safety issue, then you may want to invest in this duct tape.
Overall Gorilla tape seems thicker and has more adhesion. 3M's is way better than regular "paper thin" tape. A good illustration between the two tapes is I can NOT tear Gorilla tape in half by hand ... I use well oiled scissors.
If price is a consideration I personally think 3M should "only" charge @ $10.00 per roll not close to $18.00
I will say that Gorilla tape is also worth looking at. Gorilla tape is signifcantly thicker, and the extra thickness is all in the extra thick glue layer. They don't publish their specs, but in my experience Gorilla tape is better at sticking to irregular surfaces and not as good at sticking to sharp bends. Gorilla tape is also harder to tear off the roll. It's also more expensive. For most applications you won't notice a difference, both the 3M tape and Gorilla tape are super sticky and tough.
For this review, Linda graciously took the time to demonstrate how to make a wallet. I needed one real bad because my expensive leather one was tearing apart. (Directions for making a wallet can easily be found on the internet.) Linda took me through the process which is relatively simple. Mostly it involves cutting strips and taping them together to form pockets for the money and for the credit cards. It's a highly beneficial, worthwhile project for children. The tape was easy to cut and handle.
Linda, who has handled a lot of duct tape, was impressed by the quality of the 3M Extra Heavy Duty Duct Tape, Series Number 6969, Black. It is very thick, strong and adhesive and very appropriate for making men's wallets. My wallet, when finished, looked professional. We used the black duct tape for the billfold and red 3M Duct Tape [3M Duct Tape red [PACK OF 12 ]] for the credit card holders. Linda would love to use this heavy duty duct tape for other clothing projects.
This 3M Extra Heavy Duty Duct Tape is extremely durable and more appropriate than other types of duct tapes for constructing my wallet; it is going to experience much wear and tear when being frequently pushed in and pulled out of the pockets of my tight jeans.Read more ›
