The whole crisis was caused due to the company cutting corners on safety retrofits. 

It doesn't shock me that they're cutting corners cleaning up.

Duck Tape is just a brand of duct tape.

Using medical tape as a base, they applied two new technologies. Polycoat adhesives gave the tape its unshakable stick and polyethylene coating allowed them to laminate the tape to a cloth backing, making it extremely strong and flexible. The resulting tape was nicknamed "Duck Tape" for its ability to repel water

The brand that invented the stuff.

The words are interchangeable. You're arguing that someone should use the word Kleenex instead of tissue. It's a matter of preference.

Nuclear power has a special kind of duct tape. I am not making that up. The adhesive is different so it's not corrosive to anything, pulls cleanly off any surface, and it is never grey. EVER. Usually it's red or yellow.

So don't think this is something you can just pick up. 3M 8979N is expensive. This is the bling of the tape world.

The word "duck tape" predates "duct tape". Also, ducts are one of the worst uses of duck tape.

The Obama administration has nothing to do with whatever the hell Japan is up to. Neither does our nuclear regulatory body, the NRC (our or voluntary regulatory body, INPO). Now I could see them throwing rocks at WANO, but claiming the USA is in a coverup with Japan?

it does NOT protect windows
since it was seen on windows in england during WW2
the idiots thought it protected. what it does,is, it sticks the window together to make it easier to pick up
and that is all !!

Subby, you can edit your submission before you hit the button.
That way, nobody has to "go back a couple".
Also the Fark cliche is "wait, what?" which is just as bad, but you should at least stick with the standard.

If it's moving and it shouldn't, apply duct tape. If it's not moving and should, apply WD-40. Even the Japanese know this rule.

Waldo Pepper: shower_in_my_socks: Waldo Pepper: subby it is Duck Tape not duct tape

Duck Tape is just a brand of duct tape.

Using medical tape as a base, they applied two new technologies. Polycoat adhesives gave the tape its unshakable stick and polyethylene coating allowed them to laminate the tape to a cloth backing, making it extremely strong and flexible. The resulting tape was nicknamed"Duck Tape" for its ability to repel water

The brand that invented the stuff.


After the war the tape was put to the more civilian use of holding ducts together. So the product changed from a nameless army green tape to the familiar gray duct tape.

Thirty years later, Jack Kahl, former CEO of Manco, Inc., changed the name of the product to Duck Tape® and put 'Manco T. Duck' on the Duck Tape® logo, giving personality to a commodity product.

The next two sentences from the same article from the brand that invented the stuff.)

So it had a nickname "Duck Tape" and a product name "Duct Tape" and finally 30 years later, the Duck Tape brand came out.

http://www.duckbrand.com/duck-tape-club/history-of-duck-tape

So if you want to be really anal about it, then you are in fact incorrect. It was marketed as Duct Tape before Duck Tape.

Ringshadow: 3M 8979N is expensive



$26.49 via Uline.

3M 695 Riveters Tape goes for $39 per 36 yard roll.

3M 361 Glass Cloth Tape, rated for -65F to 450F, meeting F.A.R. regulations for use on airliners, goes for $194 per 2" x 60 yds roll.

You seem to have found the 22 inch wide stuff at $428. Akin to what they use to fix cars in the pit in NASCAR. it's 11 times as wide as a normal piece of tape.

Oh, and it seems like 3M website prices are high.
 
2014-01-05 05:44:07 PM
Actual duct tape can be cleanly removed from surfaces. It is expensive, like $20 a roll.

I can entirely believe they used it to either construct a 'roof,' or fasten a tarp, over some hole as described in the article. The article said nothing about sealing pressurized water pipes or retrofitting a k car.

This is constructive advice, I am not being negative

Well, one has to know the rules before one can break them, and even then one should know it could be their ass. TEPCO is apparently breaking rules when they should be running a tight ship. Duct tape weather proofing is not a good sign.
 
2014-01-05 06:12:34 PM
Duct tape (Duck brand or a competitor) will not fix plumbing leaks, subby. It's also really terrible at sealing ducts, but they used to use it that way before aluminum tape was invented. It's basically a crappy product that does almost nothing well, other than be a fun craft material. I just did my mailbox up in zebra-stripe Duck tape; it's good for stuff like that.
