I have no idea what this substance the glue is made of, but it is the sticky stuff in the world. I ordered this tape because I put down plastic under my house for a vapor barrier. I wanted to connect all of the seams so that no hint of moisture was able to get through. After doing a lot of research I found this was going to be the right product for the job. I also am glad the tape is red so that it stands out from the plastic that I am putting it on. One word of caution; do not lay the tape roll on its side because everything will stick to it, and it will be very hard to get off. Over all this is the best tape that I have ever used and I would buy it again.

Works perfectly as a vapor barrier tape. Due to very strong adhesive, I have found many other good uses, where "scotch" tape is not strong enough and duct tape deteriorates over time.

Tape sticks to anything!!
Used it to seal seams and rips in vapor barrier on a new room addition.
Also used on exterior to seal the seams of the OSB sheathing.
Went on in temperature below freezing and stayed on thru a major
winter storm and several days of rain after!

I'm using this both inside and out to seal plastic vapor barrier and foam sheeting insulation. It sticks to both very well but does allow for a quick repositioning if needed. After a day or so it seems to "set" and is much more difficult to peel off.

This tape sticks to nearly everything. If you are looking for a vapor barrier tape then this is exactly what you need.

Pros: cost, quality, specs

Cons: super sticky to materials can sometimes be tough on the hands while applying

Works great, VERY sticky, hard to make it let go of your fingers or the scissors, but once over the plastic house wrap (covering the insulation in the basement), it sticks great and holds well ! !

I even had a 'flood' recently when a pipe from outside burst inside (due to freezing weather and apparently water in the house in that pipe with an external valve that did not work right). When the pipe burst, the hole aimed right at some of the spots I have taped over with this tape, and NONE of them got washed off, and none of the water got past the tape to soak the insulation ! !

I'd call it great tape ! !

I've used this for two purposes -- first was to attach multiple pieces of vapor barrier tarp before installing a wood floor over concrete, and the second was as a seam tape between adjacent pieces of memory-foam carpet padding.

This tape worked fantastically for both applications. The buddies I worked with were impressed, and wanted to know where I got it, so I'll be ordering more, for myself and for them.

We replaced the tile on our kitchen back splash and to do so they had to cut the old drywall out and replace. Well when they cut it, they cut the sheathing. This tape and some 2 mil plastic to the rescue. It worked great. It's SUPER sticky and had NO problem sticking to the wood or plastic. This will even work in a standard tape gun like used in warehouses and such.

SUPER sticky!!!!
