ShurTech has in recent years come out with a new super-duty duct tape that they call T-Rex Tape. In addition to being thicker than general purpose duct tapes, T-Rex tape has an aggressive adhesive that provides better holding power, a UV-resistant skin to prevent sunlight-caused weakening over time, and reinforced layers for strength.
Each tape has 3 layers: an extra-thick adhesive layer, a high tensile and woven fabric “co-extrusion” reinforcement layer for strength, and a polyethylene skin layer. All three layers are combined and locked together using heat and pressure.
- Works longer
- Holds stronger
- 2X the bite, 3X the staying power, 4X the holding power
The tape is 17 mils thick and comes in 1.88″ x 35 yd rolls.
It’s available at Walmart stores, and is listed on Amazon for $30/roll. It’s made in the USA.

I’ve never heard of this tape before now, but it doesn’t look like a brand new product. Perhaps ShurTech merely revived their marketing efforts? Here’s a promo video:
And here’s a factoid: Did you know that ShurTech also owns Duck Tape and Frog Tape? I wonder why they didn’t just stick T-Rex tape under their Duck Tape brand.
I also wonder how T-Rex Tape compares to Gorilla Tape. In theory, couldn’t a T-Rex eat a gorilla? Unless of course the gorilla heads into a forest where the T-Rex would have difficulty moving quickly between the trees.
