Rated 4 out of 5Â by ctholson Quality is application and temperature dependent
I found that this tape bonded perfectly to some material surfaces while it bonded poorly to others. Simply tear off a short piece to test on the material upon which you plan to use it. A good duct tape bonds immediately to intended material, which this tape does on most materials. I believe it bonded much better when it was warm. When the tape was cold the adhesive became hard instead of the tackiness required to adhere.

Rated 5 out of 5Â by blacksheep Works well in many applications, including outdoors
This tape is very nice in those situations were you need a little extra holding power. Works well even in outside applications

Rated 1 out of 5Â by Brewster Not the best for duct sealing
Being an air conditioning tradesman for 35 years I have used hundreds of rolls of tape. This was my first encounter with Scotch Tough. I found the fabric wanted to tear lengthwise instead of across the width of the tape when tearing to size. The back of the fabric is somewhat slick which makes for easy peeling off the roll, but a less than satisfactory bond results when double wrapping or overlapping. I found the immediate bond to metal only fair when compared to less expensive tape. Perhaps the bond will increase over time as most tapes do.

I've used a lot of duct tape in my years, this is one of the best, it didn't peel off a few minutes later, though it did peel off unpainted concrete block after a week or so, where the blocks were painted it held on for at least twice as long before beginning to peel. I was using the tape to hold a drain line for a condensate pump until I could install clamps... All the other brands I had on hand wouldn't even stick...

Rated 2 out of 5Â by JHarriman Great when it works
The adhesion properties and weather resistance are worth of the extreme title but of the many rolls I have tried of this stuff the backing separates from the adhesive scrim too easily when removing from the roll. It happens on new rolls and old rolls just as easily. I seem to have equal trouble in cold and hot weather. I've tried just flipping the strips over but it doesn't hold well.
Best way I've found to avoid it is to pull the tape back over the roll, tangent to the circle and to do so quickly.
When the backing doesn't separate this stuff is about as sticky as rubber flashing. I tried a strip on glass that got direct sunlight for a while and it didn't leave a residue when removed but held like a champ.
