Customer Reviews
3M™ Performance Plus Duct Tape 8979 is rated 5.0 out of 5 by 1.
Rated 5 out of 5 by from Best for bandaging horse hooves I have a horse prone to hoof infections. I put a poultice on the underside of his foot, use vet wrap to hold the poultice in place, and then use duct tape to seal the bandage. This is the BEST tape I have ever used for bandaging his hoof. Durable and water resistant.
