Which Double-Sided Mounting Tape is Best? Let's find out!

  • Published: 16 September 2019
  • Double-sided mounting tape tested: LLPT, 3M VHB, Duck, Gorilla, Gorilla Clear, T-REX, Loctite, XFasten, and FixPro. Most brands purchased on Amazon. Loctite and Duck were the only 3/4 inch tapes. All other tapes were 1 inch. Thank you very much for supporting the channel by watching the commercials and through Patreon support. It helps a lot! https://www.patreon.com/projectfarm

      Its good to see that my preference for 3M VHB still holds up to the competition (I can't believe i just typed that).

      One thing you don't seem to test for in any of your comparison videos like this is how long the tape can hold the advertised weight.
      It doesn't matter if the tape can hold up to 3x it's advertised weight for a few seconds if it can't hold the advertised weight for long periods of time; which I think to be as important, if not more, than the maximum weight. We heard great things about the 3M VHB tape, bought it and in every real world use case scenario, it fails after prolonged use yet way under rated weight (<5lbs, ~2 weeks).

      Anyway, quite informative video once again. I've never even heard of LLPT tape before so I'll have to check it out.

      VHB 5952 is the weakest and cheapest mounting tapes from 3M. Their 4941 and 1947 is much stronger and is used in aerospace industry for laminating multilayered interior aircraft panels to acoustic layers and instrument panel lamination plate lamination. It's very expensive at $52 for a 1" x 100'. It has a black high density close pore acrylic foam layer with a red peel away cover.

      I wish u wouldn't use wood.. That's why you get so inconsistent results, texture isn't uniform, not to mention ur using stock sides of the 2x4s, what makes u think there's equal points of contact?? That's why u got more consistent numbers with the metal, bc its surface was less of a variable.use starboard or something similar.

      I really enjoy your videos and have used them to buy certain products. As a Aerospace worker one thing some of us are required to do is place a given amount of weight, for 30 seconds to 1 minute when it comes to double stick. This allows for a deeper bond with the parent material I would suggest using 25 to 40 pounds then let it cure as per Manufacture.

      I wonder if a light sanding on the wood would have inproved the tape test, as they used to use a light wax spray on wood framing lumber to reduce the loss of moisture

      3M VHB has a killer price, but been using it for a long time and is a go-to tape. Friend said it doesnt work on angry mother-in-law though...

        WHY DONT YOU PUT UP 3m VHB Tape?
        It is about 400 times Stronger then any of your Paid For Advertisers Tapes. GEZ o PETE

          Still not shear, just pull apart. Have to stop the outward movement. An eyelet through the center of the tube through flat stock with a nut. Then pull straight up with a kicker to prevent outward movement on the tube. Still good info though.

          But what about longevity? I had a lot of 3M tape fail with even small objects (like 200g stuff) after a few years.

              I bought some of that LLPT tape, and I think you should test the tapes against a painted surface. I have already had to pictures fall off the wall. Love your videos man

              Well, I'd like the clear one as the foam-based tape creates a mess when you tear it apart, kinda hard to clean up.

              You really need to consider investing in a wood Jointer, to maximize surface area in tests such as this where dimensional lumber is used as a testing medium. In-order to even the playing field...
              Dimensional lumber is anything but square.

              I appreciate all your hard work. I think you'd see much more consistent results leaving a weight on your test samples during the 72 hours of curing, or at least for a few hours. Even slightly more contact initially may have a big impact.

              We used the 3M VHB tape to mount the gear tracks when we built a CNC plasma table. It has held up well for over 3 years and was a real pain when we had to remove a section of the track.

                I've used the 3M tape. It works pretty well. My only complaint is trying to remove the top cover. It takes a while to find a spot where you can pull it off.

                  quality control must be terrible at llpt because the roll I got couldn't even hold up a power strip with only 1 plug on it. and yes it is the same one in this video. seeing similar reviews on amazon and on this video. the 3m I usually use has never failed me so stick with 3m folks.
