Will Gorilla Tape work on rough surfaces? [+]
Yes! Gorilla Tape is designed to stick to rough surfaces including wood, stucco, plaster, brick, metal and more. Gorilla Tape is manufactured with a highly concentrated rubber based adhesive – two to three times as thick as traditional duct tape. The result is a tape that fills gaps and penetrates rough surfaces. It is important to clean the surface and brush off any loose particles and dirt before applying Gorilla Tape.
Can it be used instead of electrical tape? [+]
Gorilla Tape should not be used as an electrical tape.
How do I use Gorilla Tape? [+]
Surfaces should be clean and dust-free. We recommend rubbing the tape into the surface. This will help achieve a better bond.

What temperature range does Gorilla Tape require? [+]
Gorilla Tape works best at temperatures above 32F (0C). For best results, always apply the tape at room temperature.
Does freezing/thawing affect Gorilla Tape? [+]
