3M™ Multi-Purpose Duct Tape 3900 is our industrial-strength tape that gives you a variety of colors for identification, contrast, decoration, bundling, sealing, holding, protecting, and other tough jobs. It is also used to color code bundles of pipes and conduit, call attention to temporary repairs, secure carpet and wiring to floors, and provide attractive seals on colored surfaces.
With one of the lowest profiles of all of our polyethylene duct tapes, it is ideal for low-bulk bundling of wires to be pulled through conduit. The natural rubber adhesive gives you instant stick and long-term hold, even on irregular surfaces. The polyethylene-coated, cloth-reinforced backing conforms to curved surfaces and resists moisture and humidity. The tape tears easily, across or down, without curling.
Originally developed for heating, ventilating and air conditioning (HVAC) applications, duct tape is used in a variety of maintenance, repair and construction settings. In addition to the traditional silver, it is sold in an array of colors that enhance utility and aesthetics. The sturdy cloth-reinforced tape can be torn from the roll and sticks instantly, providing solutions for patching, bundling, reinforcing, tabbing, taping/splicing insulation, capping pipe, securing conduit ends, marking, labeling, temporary repair, hanging polyethylene drapes and protecting against light sandblast overspray. Duct tape (sometimes mistakenly referred to as “duck tape,” is used in construction, electrical, industrial, marine, military, abatement, trucking and automotive markets, and is a mainstay in every toolbox.
