Duct Tape


Good evening, What is the best Duct tape to buy? I have tried several different types that are ok when it is warm out but worthless in the cold weather. I am a truck driver and I sometimes have to tape placards on the trailer in all kinds of weather but cold weather is the worst to try and use tape as it wont stick. The width of Duct tape is perfect for what I
use it for but I was wondering if there is a commercial brand that is better. I tried gorilla duct tape and was not impressed. Any suggestions would be appreciated. Thanks

Duct Tape


Photographers and the film industry use gaffer's tape to hold temporary scenes, lights, equipment and things in place in all sorts of weather. I wonder if hockey tape would work? In any event, if it is tape, Find Tape is one supplier that has just about anything! The Uline catalog has many options as well.

I should think keeping whatever in the truck cab would help so it stays warm?

This may not be the kind of "duct" tape that you are looking for, but this stuff is great! I bought it for HVAC purposes, but have since been using it for those "need-it-to-stick" circumstances.
