Scotch Tough Duct Tape - Special Forces Unit

Heavy Duty All-Weather 1.jpg

Yes, we all know that duct tape is one of the essentials. Blah, blah, blah, it's like the Force from Star Wars....blah, blah, it has a light side, a dark side, and it holds the universe together...we know...we know...please, stop with the quirky little fortune cookie sayings about duct tape. So anyway, beyond all that, Scotch has recently released a bunch of new types of duct tape, each for a particular use. Some of them pretty cool. Hopefully they won't spawn more annoying sayings about duct tape...

From our friends at Scotch:

Scotch® Tough Duct Tape - Heavy Duty All-Weather
is designed for long-term or permanent exterior repairs and resists drying, cracking and peeling caused by tough outdoor elements like cold and moisture - making it ideal for tough outdoor repairs in extreme conditions. Use it to:
  • Repair outdoor items
  • Secure plastic coverings to outdoor furniture for protection during the winter months

Scotch® Tough Duct Tape - Extreme Hold features rugged woven material and a double-thick adhesive layer - making it ideal for demanding repairs. Its waterproof barrier helps it adhere securely under the most extreme winter weather conditions for tough projects and repairs. Use it to:

  • Bundle loads of wood during the winter months

Scotch® Tough Duct Tape - Outdoor Painter's Clean Removal sticks to rough surfaces like brick and stucco. It features a waterproof backing and removes cleanly for up to 14 days from most surfaces. Use it to:

  • Moisture-proof doors & windows
  • Seal a variety of exterior surfaces during the winter months - including glass, vinyl, metal, concrete and finished wood

The one we're most interested in is the Heavy-Duty All-Weather. Do you think it's possible to wrap our entire house in it? Might take a while, but if it prevents ice dam leakage, it could be worth it...

you know, I never questioned it when people made duct tape prom dresses, duct tape wallets, or even a duct tape sailboat. but why would you want to bundle loads of wood with duct tape in the winter months?
