When we found cracks in the containment structure, we used to have to shut the whole plant down; then there was a lot of hassle with the nuclear regulatory agency about structural integrity and environmental contamination. With this quality duct tape, that's all in the past. Now, when we see a cracked or crumbling wall, we just bring out the tape. The slate blue blends right in. I do recommend that you use use double layers for openings near the reactor core.

Since everyone on Amazon thinks this stuff is hilarious, I figured that it deserves an explanation. Duct tape is used in nuclear power plants for similar reasons that a homeowner would use it for (hanging temporary paper signs, taping temporary power cords out of the way etc). It is NOT used for repair of ANYTHING on primary systems. Standard duct tape can't be used in nuclear power plants for two reasons. First, standard duct tape is silver, which blends in with stainless steel components, so nuclear duct tape is red or blue so it can be found easily and removed. Second, standard duct tape adhesive leaves a residue, and the residue contains sulfides which can lead to Stress Corrosion Cracking in stainless steel.

When I'm flying my Type 40 across the universe, sometimes cracks start appearing in time. Just slap some Nuclear Grade duct tape on there and it'll patch it right up. It's also great for reversing the neutron polarity flow, but I can't say it helped fix up the Chameleon Circuit. My Type 40 is stuck as a blue police box now. Sometimes my Time Vortex acts up, but I just slap on some more Nuclear Grade Performance Plus 3M Duct Tape, and the sexy thing just fires back into life. It also helps protect against Dalek and Cybermen attacks.

Sexy never complains when I patch her up with 3M Performance Plus Nuclear Duct Tape. The Slate Blue blends right into the police box. I had to buy my second roll when the Master stole my last roll.

This stuff is so amazing, sometimes I think it's made out of wibbley, wobbley, timey, whimey...stuff.

Delivery was quick no matter where I was in space and time.

It seems everyone reviewing this tape is writing their audition for comedy central. I bought two rolls September 2009. It still works without leaving residue and is as sticky as the day I received it two years ago. Meanwhile similarly aged grey stuff delaminates as I take it off the roll. This is expensive stuff but the roll is huge and performs for years.

We have used this product in an outdoor application and it holds up quite well. Some has held over a year eventhough it has been exposed to the weather.

After a long night of beer and hot wings, I decided to overnight this tape to my house, as I knew what was going to happen.

After the epic birthing of a giant brown monster, I used 3M's performance plus nuclear tape to seal around the bathroom's door into the bedroom. To my surprise, my wife and children never did smell what I had to endure.

After 5 months, 29 days, I removed the tape, and I was happy to find no sticky residue left on the door frame.

I do see Amazon is now selling this for [...] I wish I would have waited, as I did pay full price.

At first I believed my professor when he said that I couldn't get anything better than an A+. Now I know the truth. There is a secret nuclear grade to which I must aspire.

As I do most Sundays, I was working in the back yard on the grill. Because the dude next door is an Al Qaeda operative and he doesn't lock his shed, I figured, hey, what the hell, let's beef up the grill with some bomb grade plutonium. Because I didn't have anything handy to hold it in place, I stuck it down with this 3M nuclear duct tape. After all, I don't want my burgers exposed directly to radiation!

That seemed like a good idea at the time, but when I threw a steak on the grill, not only was the steak cooked way too quickly, but the gamma rays jumped right through the tape and caused the steak to start glowing. It also tasted funny, so I can't say I recommend this product at all!
