3M Performance Plus Duct Tape (Nuclear Grade) – MacGyver would be proud


I’m not so sure which is scarier, the fact that the nuclear industry uses duct tape, or that it uses so much that it has its own special grade. 3M Performance Plus Duct Tape aka Nuclear Grade Duct Tape is high performance tape for those “trickier” situations.


Designed to work well outdoors, in harsh sunlight and in wet conditions Nuclear Duct Tape can be removed from most opaque surfaces without leaving any adhesive behind, even after 6 months in 4C – 49C temperatures. In fact it works in temperatures up 93C and is UV resistant. $US15 for 60 yards apparently but it’s probably illegal to export it.

[With a little help from Toolmonger]

3M Performance Plus Duct Tape Nuclear Grade 8979N has a unique tape construction that allows for both permanent and temporary applications whether indoors or outdoors. It is removable with little or no adhesive residue from most opaque surfaces up to 6 months after application. 3M duct tape 8979N is also UV resistant for one year.

  • They sell the stuff on Amazon.com to the general public of good ol' Murca, but guess what – they refuse to ship it outside the US. Same old them and us…
