Gorilla Tape - Tough and Wide - Review
Gorilla, masters of all things sticky, sent us some of their Tough and Wide Gorilla Tape to check out and check out we did. We've been fans of their Gorilla Tape for a couple years now, ever since someone brought a roll to the jobsite and we all got a front row seat at how strong it is (it's very, very strong), but we weren't exactly sure how we'd use the extra wide roll...
Turns out we used it a lot.
What's great about the wide roll is that (and this is going to sound silly) where you would normally need two pieces of tape, you now only need one (duh...). This means that exterior projects, temporary water-proofing, things like that are a lot easier to do. Lapping two pieces of tape together is a pain and it doesn't always come out the way you want, but with the Tough and Wide, just lay down the single piece and away you go.
We also used it for a temporary patch on a rubber roof that sustained some damage and, so far a couple weeks later, it's still fully-adhered.
In addition, we left a roll in the back of the truck where it sat in water for a three day rain storm. The cardboard centerpiece is a little ragged but, if you can believe it, the tape seems even sticker than it was when we first opened it. Apparently this stuff thrives on adversity.
A 30 yard roll is about $11 which we think is well worth it.
