Product Description

From the Manufacturer

Gorilla Tough now on a roll. Bonds to things ordinary tapes can't, including brick, stucco, wood and more. Made with double thick adhesive, strong reinforced backing, and a tough all-weather shell. It's the biggest, strongest thing to ever happen to tape. The thick adhesive provides a stronger bond as it fills the gaps, especially in porous surfaces. The reinforced backing makes the tape strong, but can still be ripped by hand. The black outer shell is extra tough, helping create a barrier against harsh elements and resistance to abrasion; and forms a moisture resistant barrier. It can even be used in place of electrical tape. Roll is 1.88 inches x 35 yards long and features a 17 mils thick adhesive.

Product Description

Gorilla Tape has taken duct tape to a new level. Gorilla Tape's toughness surpasses ordinary tapes, making the list of uses virtually endless. It sticks to rough and uneven surfaces, including wood, stone, stucco and brick, that ordinary tapes can't hold.

Gorilla tape is way better than regular Duct tape.

As the advertisements suggest, this tape will stick to brick and virtually any other surface. Be careful though, because it might just strip the paint upon removal. This was the painful lesson I learned when trying to temporarily hold some video cables to my wall and ceiling. Even when using a hair dryer to soften the adhesive, I was not able to prevent the paint from getting ripped off, no mater how gentle I was.

Despite my lack of success with the hair dryer, the only area where I have seen Gorilla Tape fail is in moderately-high temperature applications. For example, I wanted to use the tape to patch small leaks around the exhaust hose of a new portable air conditioner. The warm air would simply soften the adhesive over time, causing it to fall off.

It would be nice if a version of Gorilla Tape had nylon filaments, similar to strapping tape. While strong, Gorilla Tape does not have the tensile strength provided by such reinforcing fibers. This feature would then allow Gorilla Tape to be employed in a number of other applications where it could serve as a structural element instead of merely a bonding medium.

Pros

Excellent adhesive qualities

Cross woven fibers

Cons

Doesn't hold up in moderately high temperatures

No nylon filament reinforcement

Stickiness can make some applications difficult

I don't think there is a perfect type of duct tape out there that will do every kind of task for which duct tape was designed for. Gorilla tape is for jobs that require a thicker duct tape; about twice as thick as the regular kind, and for those jobs that require the tape to have very little stretch. This tape is great for outdoor applications, where the tape will be exposed to the elements.

Before I started using it, I read that it has too much adhesive on it, but I disagree. It has the right amount of adhesive...to stick to porous surfaces like brickwork and wood. And when you peel it off, there is hardly any residual adhesive remaining on the surface. I also read that Gorilla tape smells awful, but it does not....it smells like licorice and paint thinner...and you'd literally have to have the tape right against your nose to be able to smell it.

For its double thickness, I was pleasantly surprised at how easily this tape can be torn to size by hand. No knife or scissors are needed to cut it.

Because this is a use-specific product, this and other brands of duct tape are NOT made for packing carboard boxes...use packing tape instead! Packing tape is made to stretch before it tears. Packing tape is made to be cut by a knife or scissors; and packing tape is made to stick to cardboard. If you use Gorilla tape or another brand for packaging, the tape will eventually tear at the edges of the cardboard box (where there is motion), so don't use any duct tape for packaging...duct tape is not designed to perform like packing tape. Also, duct tape is not designed to be used as painters' masking tape....with Gorilla tape's extra adhesive, it would be a disaster when you peel it off and find out you took pieces of drywall or plaster with it! Duct tape is not masking tape, so don't expect it to perform like masking tape.

If I had to pick one brand of duct tape to keep in the car for emergencies or in my tool box, Gorilla tape would be my choice.

I did use the Gorilla glue for some home products, and was satisfied. So, when I needed a good strong tape, based upon the product claims, I bought a large roll of this tape.

This tape is overpriced for what it does, and 3M exterior tape is much better for less cost. The Gorilla tape is a strong tape, if only used for interior projects, but the sun's rays negates any holding power of the adhesive if it is used outdoors. The adhesive just doesn't stand up to any heat at all. If used outside, it loses its grip and leaves a thick sticky residue on the object that it was supposed to wrap or hold together.

I wrapped the wooden handles of my wife's garden tools, and within a couple of hours in direct sunlight the tape "let go" because of the sunlight, leaving a sticky residue that took me quite some time to remove. Cheap silver duct tape holds up much, much better, at less than a 1/3 of the cost, but the fabric falls apart after a while with constant exposure to the sun.

If someone would come up with a tape that stood up to the sun, plus didn't rot, I'd buy it. But I wouldn't buy a roll of this tape again for any exterior use.

I used this stuff to tape down carpets, and on unpainted, porous wood. It is amazing how well it sticks. It is quite thick and strong also, but you can tear it like duct tape. Only thing I couldn't stick it to was a dusty metal surface, and I didn't expect to anyway: it just picks up the dust. Once clean, that metal surface gave ultimate adhesion. I just bought 2 more rolls.

As somebody whose handyman skills range from are limited (on my best days) to completely suspect (on most days): tape, --and especially abundant quantities of duct tape (or "duck tape" depending on where you first learned to use it)-- is a *major* part of a tool kit.

While I once actually used duct tape on air conditioning duct in my house (how that came to be is a long story) this category of tape mostly gets used as a multi-purpose-temporary-to-permanent-fix-it measure for many kinds of repairs and holding jobs.

Consider Gorilla Tape duct tape (or "duck" tape if you prefer) on steroids...or at least on a hardcore workout regime. In my opinion it holds tighter and lasts longer than other similar heavy duty tapes in most situations.

Among the the things I've used this for in recent months:
-reinforcing the hinge and lip areas of a wheeled storage trunk (which the manufacturer's website ironically calls a "gorilla on wheels...go figure) prior to shipping it to a southern Asia military base. The tape held up for the trip over, stayed in place while being stored there, and then got re-used when the trunk was repacked for return to the states. 7 months later of garage storage later, it's still sticking strongly.

-When a battery retaining clip on my netbook computer snapped (trust me: *no* replacements for this are available), it was Gorilla Tape to the rescue to hold in the aftermarket 9-cell battery that probably overstressed the retainer in the first place. Gorilla Tape now overlaps the battery-netbook seam...
