How Duct Tape is Made

Whether you call it duck tape or duct tape, you are correct. The original name is duck tape, and now it's the brand name. But people call it duct tape because it is used to repair ducts as well. This video from Insider traces the history of duct tape and the process of making it. Don't miss the roll of duck tape that's several feet wide!  -via Geeks Are Sexy

It's properly called duck tape because it's waterproof. No self-respecting handyman (or handywoman) would EVER use this on ducts - the heat makes the tape become brittle and lose its stickiness.
