Description
 

Duct tape is that famous silver tape known for its multitude of uses. The original ‘duck’ tape were strips of cotton duck cloth that was used to wrap steel cables to protect them from corrosion but it wasn’t until World War I that duct tape as we know it was first created. The cotton duck cloth was coated with in a waterproof plastic and then a layer of rubber-based gray adhesive applied to one side. As it is so easy to carry, to use and is easily removed, this tape quickly became a staple for making on the go repairs for active military men. After the war it hit hardware stores and was commonly used to wrap air ducts – hence the name duct tape.

Duct tape is strong, flexible with a long lasted adhesive and resistance to wear and tear. This makes it the perfect survival tool to add to your emergency supplies, in your vehicle and it your bug out bag.

What can you use duct tape for?

  1. Repairs
  2. Make temporary repairs on almost anything. Fix a rip in your tent, or patch up your clothing or shoes. Duct tape has a tensile strength of up to 40 pounds and so can be used to hold together most things in the short term.

  3. Reinforcement
  4. During a storm, duct tape comes in handy to help reinforce your home. The tight weave of the cloth in the tape helps it stick to a wide variety of surfaces that you find around your home from vinyl, carpet, leather, plastic, glass. It is also resistant to water which is good news in a particularly bad storm. Use duct tape to seal the outside of windows during the winter as an added safety measure. You can also use it to keep flood waters out by sealing the bottom and sides of your doors before applying sandbags to prevent leaks. Make temporary repairs on almost anything.

  5. Quarantine
  6. Its ability to seal windows and doors is also helpful in securing a room. A quarantine room is when you need to socially isolate someone or yourself because of dangerous, contagious illnesses. You can create a contained room by using duct tape and plastic sheeting to seal the windows and doors. This practice is also helpful during the albeit unlikely event of a volcanic eruption. Ash is a major health concern during eruptions so closing doors and windows and sealing them with duct tape will keep ash out of your home, so you and your family can breathe easy.
