All I know is not all Duck tape (duct tape) is created equal. Use the cheap THIT, leave it on too long if it's hot and the glue isn't sticky, it turns to concrete! The only thing left to do is chip the glue off. Ask me how I know.

The aluminum foil tape is duct tape.
W/QUOTE]

So I'm confused. I've been using this duct tape for auto bodywork thinking it's aluminum foil tape?

Read the label. It's Autobody Repair Tape.
