Constructed of polyethylene film laminated to cloth with a rubber adhesive, this tape resists curling and tears off the roll cleanly for easy application on rough surfaces. 3M™ Performance Plus duct tape 8979 has a unique construction that allows for applications indoors and outdoors. It is removable with little or no adhesive residue up to 6 months after application. Originally developed for heating, ventilating and air conditioning (HVAC) applications, duct tape is used today in a variety of maintenance, repair and construction settings. 3M™ Performance Plus duct tape 8979 was tested in accordance with UL723, ASTM E84. Due to its ability to remove cleanly, it is an excellent choice for containment operations, where it can also provide a tight seal for attaching poly draping and closing cuffs. Available colors include slate blue, black and olive. The tape can be used at temperatures as high as 200 deg F for up to 30 min. We offer 3M™ Performance Plus duct tape 8979 in a variety of colors to enhance utility and aesthetics. Our sturdy cloth reinforced tape can be torn from the roll and sticks instantly, providing a wide range of convenient solutions. 3M™'s family of rugged cloth and duct tapes adheres to most surfaces for applications ranging from bundling to moisture proofing, sealing to splicing, reinforcing to hanging poly drapes. Available in a variety of colors and strengths, these tapes are best known for their hand tearability, high tensile strength and conformability.
