Most people find this product superior to using “Duct Tape”. It won’t leave a sticky residue. Can be use on concrete, brick, or painted surfaces without pulling off the surface. Considered a painters tape, yet will hold for weeks with out coming off. Works well in water too. (after application) The white of the tape surface is extremely visible making it easy to see during clean up and much less likely to miss some. Grips with a solid hold to leave clean lines against paints and stains.
