T-Rex Brute Force High-Performance tape is fundamentally changing the expectations of what a duct tape can do. Too tough to tear by hand, Brute Force is built with patent-pending Forge-Link extreme tensile technology. One 36-inch loop of Brute Force can hold more than 700 pounds of weight giving it unparalleled strength. The newest addition to the T-Rex brand family also features an aggressive, double-thick adhesive, allowing the tape to stick to rougher and dirtier surfaces, and a durable, waterproof backing that gives the tape all-weather performance.

“The unmatched holding power and strength of T-Rex Brute Force fundamentally changes what you can do with a duct tape. Where regular duct tape is good for regular fixes, Brute Force is truly an engineering solution,” says Stephen Wagner, product marketer, ShurTech Brands, LLC, the manufacturer of T-Rex brand. “The unique technology of Brute Force forges the way for the next generation of high-performance tapes and changes the expectations of what a duct tape can do.”

T-Rex Brute Force is sold in 25-yard rolls and is available at national mass and hardware retailers. For more information, visit
