Duct Tape


Orange Duct Tape

Base Item: crafting material.
Weight: 1 lb.

* * *

A roll of orange adhesive tape to seal ducts, leaks and fix just about everything from split stick to spacecraft skin.

The first material called "duck tape" was long strips of plain cotton duck cloth used in making shoes stronger, for decoration on clothing, and for wrapping steel cables or electrical conductors to protect them from corrosion several decades before the World War I of the Past Age.

In the US submarine fleet, an adhesive cloth tape was called "EB Green," as the duct tape used by Electric Boat was green. It is also called "duck tape", "riggers' tape", or "100-mph tape" - a name that comes from the use of a specific variety of duct tape that was supposed to withstand up to 100 mph (160 km/h; 87 kn) winds. During the Vietnam War of the Past Age the "hurricane tape" was used during the Vietnam War to repair or balance helicopter rotor blades.

Duct tape had been stowed on board every space mission since early in the Gemini days. It was easy to be found on board of Apollo and Orion spacecrafts as well as on Daedalus space station before the Reset. This thing works even in a near-vacuum. Duct tape works anywhere. Duct tape is magic and might be worshiped.
