A Tape with Instant Bond
Originally developed for heating, ventilation and air conditioning (HVAC) applications, duct tape is used today in a variety of maintenance, repair and construction settings. 3M™ All Purpose Duct Tape DT8 offers high instant adhesion coupled with maximum conformability, making it an ideal tape for contoured surfaces. It can be applied in temperatures as low as 40°F and used in temperatures as high as 150°F for up to 30 minutes. This is the most stretchable 3M duct tape and bonds firmly to a number of substrates – including plastic, glass and sealed concrete. (For applications requiring greater strength, please see 3M™ Heavy Duty Duct Tape DT11.)
