Most Helpful Customer Reviews
Not a huge fan of writing reviews, but we felt compelled to make customers aware of the toxic smell coming from this tape. Running a warehouse, we use a boat load of tape each day. We've gone through 3m scotch, duck, exheed, sparco for our daily packing needs and decided to try double bond. Price was decent, adhesiveness was on par. However, after 5 minutes of sealing boxes, my workers started complaining of the smell. I thought to myself, tape is tape is tape. Why are these guys complaining? I spent 5 minutes in the warehouse with my team using this tape and almost fainted. Halfway through the first roll, we had to open up our warehouse roll up doors (for air circulation) and started looking for my face mask. Not only did the smell resonate on us, but throughout the warehouse. Suffice to say, this tape did not smell good. My head still feels woozy and stomach aches from inhaling the smell. Can't imagine how healthy it is for our body to smell it day in and day out. Like I said, bang...
I purchased this tape based on the positive reviews of others. It arrived quickly and looked perfect. Unfortunately, after packing over 25 moving boxes (in a dry and temperature controlled home) the tape began to separate from the cardboard. Some of the tape lifted off completely. Ultimately, I purchased more tape from a moving company and re-sealed all the boxes that I had used this tape on. I do not recommend this tape.
This tape couldn't smell worse if it were made from dirty socks soaked in water imported from Rio and made in China. My husband thinks it needs to air out. I'm concerned that each pull of the tape will bring the putrid stench back to life. I can't comment on the tape, because I can't get close enough to use it. Right now, it's sitting on my grill. It's an excellent bug deterrent. If you need tape, STAY FAR AWAY. if you want to write a book titled 101 different uses for this tape, then buy it. Just get a gas mask!
