Due to the high thread count and tight weave, superior quality commercial duct tape has a tensile strength of 40 pounds, whereas lower quality duct tape’s strength is only 20 pounds.

How strong is duct tape?

Duck Max Strength has a material strength of 62 pounds, so a doubled-up piece should be able to hold upwards of 120 pounds (and a tripled piece 180 pounds). That’s a lot of weight, and we feel that that’s more than enough for what people generally do with duct tape.

What is tensile strength of tape?

Tensile strength is the force (or load) required to break a tape. This property is measured by taking a one-inch-wide piece of tape, grabbing it at both ends, and then pulling in opposite directions until the tape breaks. Tensile strength is measured in pounds per one inch of tape.
