#1. Gorilla Heavy Duty Double Sided Mounting Tape
If you are looking for the best double-sided tape, you should definitely take a look at the Gorilla Heavy Duty Mounting Tape. It is definitely one of the better industrial-strength tapes out there. What makes this double-sided tape stand out is that it is tested up to 30 pounds of holding strength, which is definitely way higher than most of the other brands.
Also, it does a good job with uneven surfaces which many other brands fail at. It is great for bonding with all sorts of materials including but not limited to metal, plastic, wood, brick, glass, and stone. Our only complaint is that you do not have too much room for error and once you apply it, it is hard to adjust later, so be very careful.
#2. 3M Scotch Double Sided Exterior Mounting
For those looking for the best double-sided tape that is excellent at mounting things, we definitely think the 3M Scotch Tape Exterior is a great call. 3M is an international brand with a lot of trust. We think the standout feature of this tape is definitely its ability to weather all storms. It is designed for outside use although it certainly can be used inside as well.
So the 3M tape does a great job in mounting to tough surfaces like brick and stucco and does a great job holding on. It is also pretty water-resistant and won’t peel off over time due to weather damage. Finally, in terms of usability, it features dual thumb studs for a one-handed opening and an anodized aluminum handle for corrosion resistance.
#3. XFasten Extreme Double-Sided Tape
We find the XFasten Extreme Double-Sided Mounting Tape to be the best double-sided tape if you want the best ratio of adhesion to durability. This is an acrylic grey tape. The standout feature is that it has a great balance of adhesive ability and protection. In other words, it sticks on great, has great holding power, and it holds up in bad weather.
We have found no other competitors that get this perfect balance of features. Useful tape with great holding power will lack the ability for being weatherproof and vice versa. And finally, we think the XFasten has pretty darn good value for your money. If you want to buy in bulk, you can definitely save a lot.
#4. 3M Scotch 5952 VHB Double-Sided Tape
The 3M Scotch VHB Double Sided Tape is pretty powerful and can be used for painted surfaces as well as general-purpose mounting or adhesion around the house or outside. This is a black, double-coated VHB adhesive tape with an acrylic foam core and it comes on a red film release liner. They are like tape fasteners but even better.
In terms of stats, we have 320 ounces per inch of adhesion to steel, 90 pounds per inch of tensile strength, and a 50 mils thickness including carrier, adhesive, and liner. Overall, this is an excellent double-sided VHB tape that is probably the best one of its class in terms of most of the stats.
#5.Gorilla Tough & Clear Double Sided Tape
Lastly, we have the Gorilla Tough & Clear Double-Sided Tape. While it is not as strong as the Gorilla Heavy Duty Tape, it does have its advantages in being clear and easier to apply. We really like this particular tape when it comes to projects where you need a clear and transparent finish that works yellow or discolor over time.
Additionally, it is actually quite weatherproof and can definitely take a beating from rain, snow, fog, and wind. Also, it bonds to pretty much any surface, smooth or uneven. Overall, if you want to sacrifice a bit of holding power for a clear double-sided tape that won’t fade, this is the one for you.
