Default Gorilla Tape

Has anyone used it?
Does it leave adhesive behind after a period of time? Week, month?
We may use some for a poly dust barrier when we start the next school. It could be on the painted CMU walls all summer.
Smooth surface stay with the duct tape?
Rough surface use the Gorilla tape?



Some reviews....but they are not from THT members, where all knowledge and truth is found.

I've used it, pulled the paint off the cabinets when we removed it and that was only after 24-36 hrs.

If you use that tape on brick, block, drywall, concrete, plan to extend the job out 6 months to remove the adhesive and repairing other damage it will leave. Put it to you this way, I put a piece of gorilla tape on 1/2" plate steel. When I pulled it off, a 1/4" of steel was hanging on the tape.

Yea it sticks. Bought a few rolls at the building supplier, the clerk said "Do not put it on anything you want to remove it from".

I keep a roll in the boat for emergency repairs.

I like it when you want something that works good,and don't care if it leaves residue. If concerned about residue would probably use something else.

My buddy uses it on the hookers he keeps in his basement. Going on six months, no neighbor complaints no police.

He is very happy with the results.

Great tape not made to be removed. They sell a strong tape at HD that is made to be removed in the paint department.
