3M™ Utility Duct Tape 2929 sticks well to metal, plastic, and concrete, yet removes easily—a good choice for temporary repairs and light-duty bundling. The silver duct tape is constructed of polyethylene bonded to cloth and backed with a natural rubber adhesive. It conforms to smooth, contoured, and lightly textured surfaces, can be written on with markers, and tears easily by hand. The water-resistant tape seals out moisture and dust.
How to Choose the Right Duct Tape
One of the most important points to think about when choosing a duct tape is how it is going to be used. When it comes to choosing a 3M™ Duct Tape that meets the need for a particular job, consider the following: Performance Plus and Outdoor Masking Tapes are best in class tapes for indoor/outdoor use, offering clean removal and long term weatherability. Extra Heavy Duty, Heavy Duty, and Multi Purpose duct tapes provide reliable performance for demanding contractor, MRO and industrial job site applications. And General Purpose duct tapes offer cost-effective options for general and lighter duty applications such as bundling, sealing, holding, and identifying.
Strength, moisture resistance, abrasion resistance, heat resistance, and clean removal impact the effectiveness of any duct tape. Two of three key factors that determine these factors are backing and adhesive. The thicker the backing, the greater tensile strength (the resistance to breaking under tension), moisture, and abrasion resistance provided. A rubber-based or synthetic rubber adhesive provides instant stick, a strong bond, and long-lasting hold, even in moist conditions. Lastly, the distinctive cloth scrim, laminated between the backing and the adhesive, adds additional strength and also helps guide straight, horizontal and vertical tearing.
One last and often overlooked fact about tapes in general, is that they all need to be stored correctly and they all have a shelf life. Weak adhesion, lifting, curling, and breakage are more often than not, attributable to age or improperly stored tape, as opposed to quality. In all cases, care should be taken to read all product information thoroughly. In particular, the tape's specifications should be weighed against the task at hand to ensure successful, cost-effective outcomes.

This is a good, reliable, strong but pretty pricey duct tape. I have tried other cheaper brands but would always go back to 3M. Ijust hope they somehow lower their price. Read morePublished 22 days ago by Cassandra Paris
Masking tape is stickier than this junk tape. I ordered 6 rolls. Once I clawed through the shrink wrap that stuck to the tape, I was astonished to find that I had crap in my hands. Read morePublished 1 month ago by Happy Customer
I was disappointed with this since I always loved 3M brands. This didn't have much sticking power.Published 1 month ago by J.
