Hurricane Tape is a heavy-duty general utility purpose tape that can be used as an alternative to duct tape. It is much more durable, weather resistant and does not stretch or tear like duct tape, making it a better choice for outdoor and heavy-duty applications. Its backing is a water resistant woven polyethylene plastic. With a UV inhibitor added, it is proven to stay intact for up to 5 years of continuous weather exposure. The adhesive will not leave a residue if removed within 7-14 days but will get stickier over time.
