What started as a battlefield repair tool has truly become an iconic American fix-all, helping DIYers and professional contractors out of sticky situations throughout the years.  But this isn’t just another duct tape.  CL-W6064 is better. Much, much better.  

Remember that story about the pilot in Alaska who repaired his bear-ravaged plane with duct tape to fly home? Or the time astronauts used duct tape to save the Apollo 13 space mission?

What started as a battlefield repair tool has truly become an iconic American fix-all, helping DIYers, professional contractors and dads out of sticky situations throughout the years.

But this isn’t your father’s duct tape. CL-W6064 is better.  Much, much better. 

Our proprietary, industrial strength utility grade tape is a 21st-century duct tape designed to tackle 21st Century challenges.

“The inspiration for CL-W6064 is the culmination of forty years of experience in pressure sensitive adhesives combined with the frustrations professional contractors encounter daily on the job site,” says Risa Edelstein. “We wanted to create a material that was strong but lightweight, industrial quality without requiring industrial equipment to use and took advantage of the inherent versatility of duct tape.”

Indeed, when it comes to high-performance building, the average duct tape just doesn’t cut it.  

ECHOtape CL-W6064 strikes a delicate balance between strength and usability, providing the maximum amount of sticking power without sacrificing ease of use. How did we make that happen? By using a new, advanced technology — a two head coating process.  The first coat ensures high sheer strength, and the second coat, high initial tack.  The result is a beautifully streamlined piece of tape that is lighter, yet stronger than you would imagine, and easy to unwind.

The combination of an aggressive adhesive, flexible backing and rugged all-weather shell makes it one of the few professional grade tapes to consistently stick to smooth, rough or uneven surfaces, indoors or out.

Furthermore, we implemented a special quality control process where testing the thickness of the adhesive happens inline – during the manufacturing process. This allows the tape to be made precisely to spec and provides better quality control.

The combination of an aggressive adhesive, flexible backing and rugged all-weather shell makes it one of the few professional grade tapes to consistently stick to smooth, rough or uneven surfaces, indoors or out. It’s completely hand-tearable, leaving a crisp, clean edge, and the uniquely engineered mesh lays flat on any surface, with no twisting or curling.
