New Scotch Tough Duct Tapes
3M Introduces New Line of Duct Tapes for Extreme, Rough Conditions ST. PAUL, Minn., Oct. 28 / / - While small repairs and mends are typically easy to fix, there are often bigger tasks like repairing patio furniture, bundling large pieces of lumber and securing carpeting and cords that require tough strength to get the job done. When the conditions are extreme, the repairs are rough and only the strong survive, it's time to reach for the tough fix - new Scotch Tough Duct Tapes from 3M. Withstanding outdoor elements like sunlight and moisture, this premium line of duct tapes is weather resistant, featuring a durable, waterproof backing. Tough on indoor or outdoor repair and maintenance jobs, the tapes beat the heat - with UV resistance and even some tapes standing up to temperatures as high as 200 degrees Fahrenheit. Featuring a breakthrough technology, Scotch Tough Duct Tapes hold on strongly to a variety of materials and surfaces, such as brick, concrete, and stucco. Each tape quickly tears off the roll and unwinds with ease for flexible application. From repairing items and securing materials to bundling loads and reinforcing tools, Scotch Tough Duct Tapes are the ideal solution whether at home, in a recreational setting or on the job site. The tough line consists of: - Scotch Tough Duct Tape - No Residue: This maximum strength duct tape removes easily and leaves no sticky adhesive behind for up to six months. With an application range of up to 200 degrees Fahrenheit and UV resistance, no residue tough duct tape has long-lasting performance without leaving a sticky mess. - Scotch Tough Duct Tape - Extreme Hold: Tremendously strong with rugged woven material and a double-thick adhesive layer for a tougher grip, extreme hold tough duct tape won't tear or break under pressure, making it ideal for demanding repairs. The tape's waterproof barrier helps it adhere securely under the most extreme weather conditions for tough projects and repairs in all seasons, over the long haul. - Scotch Tough Duct Tape - Transparent: Breakthrough 3M technology made this tape the first transparent duct tape on the market for virtually invisible repairs. Now with stronger holding power and clean removal, this transparent tape lasts longer than ordinary 3M duct tapes, making it the perfect solution when appearance matters most. - Scotch Tough Duct Tape - Heavy Duty All-Weather: Designed for long-term, permanent exterior repairs, this heavy duty all-weather duct tape resists drying, cracking and peeling caused by tough outdoor elements, such as sunlight, heat, cold and moisture - allowing it to last significantly longer outdoors than other 3M duct tapes. - Scotch Tough Duct Tape - Outdoor Painter's Clean Removal: Designed with professional painters in mind, this tape has a high adhesion level so it sticks to rough surfaces like brick and stucco.
