Black Gorilla Tape 1.88 In. x 35 Yd., One Roll

  • Heavy duty and double thick, Gorilla Tape offers over-the top results; It’slike duct tape on steroids

Gorilla Tape has taken duct tape to a new level. This double thick adhesive tape surpasses ordinary duct tapes, making the list of uses virtually endless. Made with double thick adhesive, strong reinforced backing, and a tough all-weather shell, it’s the biggest, strongest, toughest thing ever to happen to duct tape. Gorilla Tape is manufactured with a highly concentrated rubber based adhesive – two to three times as thick as traditional duct tape. The result is a tape that fills gaps and pe

    WHERE DOES AN 800-POUND GORILLA SIT?, March 5, 2015

    For fear of being placed on some kind of secret government watch list as a DUCT TAPE hoarder, I won’t admit how much Duct Tape I’ve purchased over the past few years. I will say that I use DUCT TAPE more times a day than I eat.

    I am constantly using duct tape as extra hands to temporarily hold my project pieces in place for the initial gluing, nailing, stapling, screwing … or more duct taping. The easy-to-tear and cheaper 5-mil tape is a blessing for this purpose.

    Reviews on duct tape are all over the place. So is duct tape. I was specifically interested in the adhesiveness and tensile strength of the 3 leading brands of black duct tape. I needed hard evidence, something tangible I could STICK with. The first thing I did was look at the thickness and cost based on prices effective 3/3/15.

    Scotch TOUGH Heavy Duty All Weather.
    26.31 cents per yard and the mil thickness is not listed and might be explained later in my review.

    Intertape Polymer Group IG2PK-A Grip Black Heavy Duty.
    25.36 cents per yard and 17-mil thick.

    Gorilla Tape.
    25.66 cents per yard and 17-mil thick.

    The rubber adhesiveness when tested on a variety of surfaces did not reveal a discernible difference between the 3 brands. It grabs and sticks. As one comment said, “It’s ALIVE!”

    The Scotch tape is crinkled or wavy on the roll and if cut cleanly, the edge is hard to locate. I had to use a shop magnifying light.

    For years, at the end of the fireplace season, I have placed a heavy tarp over the top of a brick chimney and secured it with black duct tape. Every brand I’ve tried except Gorilla Tape has shredded and loosened before the following season.

    I’ve had Gorilla Tape holding a heavy tarp on a brick chimney for 2 years and it is still holding firm and not raveling.

    The tensile strength test really surprised me. I took several samples of each brand and folded the tape, adhesive side in, creating double-thickness strips 1/2-inch wide. I placed one end in a bench vice with padded jaws so the metal would not break the tape. I placed the other end in the cushioned jaws of a Vice-Grip. (A piece of bicycle inner tube works great for this purpose.) A new Rapala digital fishing scale hooked to the Vice-Grip would reveal at what weight the strip of tape would break.

    I ran 5 tests on each brand of tape and the results were consistent and conclusive.

    The Scotch TOUGH Heavy Duty Tape broke at a mere 5 pounds. I thought I was doing something wrong. It is WEAK tape.

    The Intertape Polymer Tape broke at 14 pounds. Not bad. I can live with that.

    The Gorilla Tape broke at a whopping 28 pounds. WHOA!

    Try this test yourself if you have any doubts.

    If you don’t have a fishing scale, you can tie a bucket (known weight) to a rail with a strand of black duct tape and place items of known weight into the bucket until the tape breaks.

    An 800-pound Gorilla can sit anywhere he wants to in my house.

    HonestReview- this tape is strong like a Gorilla’s grip…….perhaps its called Gorilla tape for that reason ORRRR this is the tape that Gorilla’s use to fix their Gorilla houses? Either way I tested it on my arm……… for you know, testing purposes, and ladies forget waxing, just use this tape and it will rip your hair’s clean off! I use this tape for my gigs to hide wires so people don’t trip over the wires. I also used the white Gorilla tape to fix a rip on my front bumper of my truck. Yes a rip not a crack, it was ripped about 5″ long or so. Please see picture. Don’t mind the Zombie decal….I put it over the tape so people don’t notice the tape as much. I’ve had the Gorilla tape on there for over a year now, and it’s still going strong. I don’t normally give products 5 stars, but this one exceeds my expectations. It’s freakin strong like a Gorilla!

    It sticks to everything so far, but four stars because I noticed that its not as sticky as it used to be, right now I have some of the older Gorilla tape keeping my shower curtain stuck to the wall so it doesn’t leak, its perfect, but this doesn’t have the same stickiness, not as strong, so I don’t know if its really not as good, next year I’ll find out when I have to hang plastic over a frozen window, duct tape can’t handle it, freezes off immediately but the old Gorilla Tape worked good, so if this works like that does then I have to find this and give another star.
