If you follow the directions carefully when applying the Command tape, it holds really well, except in temps over 105F, at which point it’ll fail, even if you did everything right.

The standard stuff for more permanent installs is 3M VHB, which comes in different flavors, some better suited to specific applications.

Command’s key advantage in many situations is that it’s easy to remove. Again, as long as you follow the directions.

It would be helpful in steering you towards an appropriate product if you would explain where and what you want to stick up.

3M VHB tape

You can get it in a variety of lengths and widths. I think I paid about $25CDN for 3 yards of 1" wide.

I followed instructions to the letter for the command hooks and was never successful getting them to stick to the vinyl walls on the inside of the Escape for more than a day or two. They work OK on the fiberglass or wood. If there is going to be any significant weight involved I wouldn't trust the command tape.

Command tape failed for us . We were traveling in below zero temps and several item that were fastened with Command tape fell off the wall. The tape seemed to work just fine in temps above freezing. Just our experience .

Brian, It would help to know what you trying to tape and on what kind of surface. VHB is indeed a very strong tape, but it may not be the proper material for your application.
