When things get sticky, go find the duct tape - TriValley Central

You could probably name a number of items. But duct tape should be high on the list. That stuff you use to hold your old suitcase together, to temporarily keep a broken window from shattering, or to wrap towels around water pipes to keep them from freezing. And don’t forget fixing flip-flops or tennis shoes or making a purse (more on that later).

A history lesson

Duct tape got its start during World War II when soldiers needed a better way to keep water from leaking into ammunition cases. Reportedly, the mother of two sailors came up with the idea of using a fabric tape that she had tested in the ammunition factory where she worked. She wrote to President Franklin D. Roosevelt about her idea and, eventually, a division of Johnson & Johnson, the medical company, made the perfect duct tape for the job by applying a rubber-based adhesive to duck cloth that was coated in polyethylene. The rest is history. Soldiers used the tape for everything from repairing Jeeps to firearms.

You may well ask what was duck cloth. It was plain woven cotton, and some people say the word “duck” came from a Dutch word for linen. So originally, it may have been called “duck tape.” After the war, it was used to hold ducts together in a house, though not anymore. The kind of duct tape you can buy almost anywhere today is not the kind of duct tape that is used to hold HVAC ducts together in building a house. And probably no brands of duct tape are made out of duck cloth now either.

“The commercial and industrial types of duct tape that we produce now are very high-bonding tapes,” said Robert Brittain in media relations with 3M. “They’re so strong that they can hold panels on a building.”

The duct tape that most of us are familiar with is the black or silvery gray kind and is backed by cloth or some kind of woven material often coated with polyethylene. Powdered aluminum pigment gives traditional duct tape its silver...
