What is VELCRO® Brand Heavy Duty Tape?


It is an industrial-strength tape that is ideal for DIY projects. It can be cut to the size that you require and is of the highest quality. Say goodbye to hooks and nails – this Heavy-Duty Tape is far more discreet!

What are the benefits of using VELCRO® Brand Heavy Duty Tape?

  • Appealing alternative – VELCRO® BrandHeavy Duty Tape is an excellent alternative to using screws, nails, and glue, as it is hook and loop technology, which means it is easily adjustable.
  • Strength – It has great strength and remains low maintenance, but perhaps one of its greatest advantages is the ease of use. Hook and loop are locked together with just a press of the fabric. 50% stronger than standard hook and loop tape, it is able to hold up to 1lbs per square inch up to 10lbs.
  • Durability – Suitable for both indoor and outdoor use, these heavy-duty hook and loop fasteners are made with strong, water-resistant adhesive – perfect for even the most demanding of projects. It also has high adhesive temperature resistance, with medium tack adhesion.
  • Versatility – Not only do they have immense holding power, but they are also suitable for a wide range of smooth surfaces including wallboard, glass, metal, and most plastics to suit all of your domestic and work needs.

How do I use it?

Follow these simple steps:

  1. Clean and dry surface before application. You can use any cleaner that will not leave a film or oily surface. We recommend using alcohol prep pads.
  2. Peel tape from fastener and press firmly into place.
  3. Adhesive reaches maximum strength after 24 hours.
