3M™ 8979 Performance Plus Duct Tape Features

  • 2” Inch Wide x 25 Yards Long
  • Color – Slate Blue
  • Total Thickness – 12.6 Mil
  • Stays on for up to one year without deterioration even outdoors.
  • Saves time of removing sticky residue.
  • Strong waterproof backing resists wear, abrasion, moisture, and weathering.
  • Aggressive adhesive for quick and reliable attachment.
  • Meets UL 723, HUD, and BOCA codes.
  • Backing is curl resistant and conformable making it easy to handle and apply.
  • The rubber adhesive bonds well to most surfaces and has excellent initial stick. Once in place, it stays where you put it. One tape may be used for many applications with little waste.
  • Unwinds from the roll easily making it convenient to use and preventing user fatigue. 25 yd. rolls can also be used with the 3M™ Hand Masker™ Dispenser M3000 and other dispensers to increase efficiency in hanging paper and plastic sheeting, or dispensing the tape itself.
  • The slate blue color blends with grays, but is distinct to insure the correct tape is used for outdoor and removable applications.
  • 48 mm rolls have a special edge treatment so the sides are not tacky and pick up less dirt. They are individually wrapped to preserve the tape integrity resulting in less waste.


3M™ Performance Plus Duct Tape 8979 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 8979 is also UV resistant for one year.

The polyethylene film and cloth scrim construction provides straight, easy tear with high tensile strength for the most demanding applications.
