T-Rex® Brand Sets a New Guinness World Records™ Title for the Strongest Duct Tape

Jun 1, 2021 | T-Rex Tape

Avon, Ohio (June 1, 2021) – T-Rex® Brand is making it official. After putting its tape up against duct tapes from around the globe, the brand is proud to announce T-Rex® Brute Force® tape has set a GUINNESS WORLD RECORDS title for the strongest duct tape.

Tough projects require tough tape and T-Rex Brute Force® can take on any challenge. It’s designed for projects that require intense strength, durability and power, no matter the application. To achieve the strongest duct tape title, Brute Force was tested against 19 other premium duct tapes of similar material and strength claims from around the world. The results were outstanding as Brute Force produced a tensile strength at break of 303.5 pounds per inch—outperforming the competitive tapes by more than 50 percent*.

To showcase how T-Rex® Brute Force® tape can do more than any other duct tape, the brand teamed up with four-time World’s Strongest Man**Brian Shaw to put Brute Force® to the ultimate test through multiple lifts and strength tests—including lifting a 700-lb. concrete block with just one loop of the tape, proving the product’s power is unmatched. View the challenge on the T-Rex® YouTube page.

“Setting the GUINNESS WORLD RECORDS™ title is an incredible achievement for T-Rex® Brute Force®. We’ve always claimed to be the strongest duct tape, but now it’s official,” said Ashley Luke, senior product manager at Shurtape Technologies, LLC, the company that markets the T-Rex® brand. “Obtaining this title only helps our customers further understand what truly makes this product unique and why it’s the perfect tape to keep on hand in your truck, garage or at every jobsite. The tape is built with Forge-Link™ extreme tensile technology and an aggressive, double-thick adhesive with a durable waterproof backing so it can quickly secure, fasten and hold all sorts of materials for any project.”
