Gorilla Tape is so strong it sticks and holds onto any surface. The double thick adhesive is especially useful on rough or imperfect surfaces as it fills in the gap and penetrates surfaces to ensure a stickier grip. With a waterproof reinforced backing the tape provides a barrier against moisture and has a high resistance to abrasion. The backing is also woven to allow the tape to easily conform to the surface. Despite this it can be ripped by hand, making it even more practical to use. Gorilla Tape can also be used safely in place of electrical tape.
