With the weather in ‘full on’ winter mode here, any outdoor projects pretty much have to wait until the ground thaws. But there are always those projects that can’t wait and need to be handled now. If you need duct tape to help fix any of those repairs, you need to have the right kind in our harsh, cold conditions.
Now available in Canada, Scotch® has created an entire line of tapes that they double dare you to try out on any tough situation that you throw at them!
Here are their newest tapes:
Scotch® Tough Duct Tape Transparent: ideal for discreet repairs. Superior adhesive holding power works great for bundling, reinforcing and securing lightweight loads. Its tight seal and virtual transparency make it an attractive solution for patch repairs, indoors and out!
Scotch® Tough Duct Tape Heavy Duty All Weather: a tape that promises to stand the test of time and the worst of the elements. Made to resist any weather condition with waterproof backing and UV resistance makes it perfect for outdoor repairs and weather-proofing.
Scotch® Tough No Residue: strong enough to get you through in a pinch yet tough enough to stay around permanently – if you need it to. It leaves no residue or gooey leftovers to contend with for up to six months. Great for outdoor use, Scotch®Tough No Residue is ideal for securing cords, hanging signage, bundling and labeling.
Scotch® Tough Extreme Hold: give this one all you’ve got! Hot or cold, big or little and even extremely demanding jobs; this strong tape has a double-thick adhesive layer for maximum hold in tape-to-surface applications. Combine that with a strong, waterproof backing and the ability to handle a temperature range up to 200F, you’re dealing with the toughest of the tough.
Scotch® Tough Outdoor Painter’s Clean Removal: strong enough to hold for your outdoor paint job yet easy enough for a hassle-free clean up. It can handle a variety of surfaces including the rough ones and is strong enough to hang poly sheeting and waterproof so you can moisture proof and seal, too. When you’re done, take your time. You’ve got clean removal for up to 14 days for most surfaces.
Scotch® Tough Poly Hanging and Tarps: a professional grade duct tape with high tensile strength. It’s tough enough for just about anything on the job site from general repairs, hanging and securing plywood, to repairing tarps. Its shear strength is perfect for vertical applications. This means it won’t fall down. And it is conformable for a tight seal with strong adhesive to stick around for a long while.
Scotch® Tough Duct Tapes are available at Home Depot and Rona ranging in price from $8 to $10. For additional information regarding Scotch® Tough Duct Tape, please go to www.3m.com.
AND – if you are looking for an extra stocking stuffer for the handyman (or woman) in your life, get them something they can actually use this winter.
PS – Duct tape in general always reminds me of Red Green “If at first you don’t succeed, then use more duct tape.”
