What is the difference between them? Doesn't Duck tape better then E-Tape?
I'm just asking cause I always thought that Duck tape was stronger then E-Tape.

First of all, it's DucT Tape, not quack quack Duck Tape. Second, they each have their own uses. Yes DUCT tape has a stronger hold, but e-tape is mainly used in multiple layers. It provides a good way to bridge a gap. For instance, I wrap PETG in 2 layers of Electrical tape before I nest it in PVC. It works very well for that.

E-tape is made of PVC, or other materials, depending on what type you buy. Duct tape has fibers embedded in it, which makes it a non-uniform surface, which is no good for layering to nest materials. From my opinion, once properly applied E-tape holds better than duct tape as well.

If you want to seal a duct in a water resistant manner, you should use aluminum tape.
If you want to fill a gap between two tubes in a fairly air-tight manner, use electrical tape.
If you want to attach one of your friends to the ceiling for a few days, use duct tape.

And then there's Gorilla Tape, which is Gorilla Glue on a tape. Use that if you want to permanently graft a nerf gun to yourself.

It's the Chuck Norris of Duct Tape.

Just to settle the Duck vs Duct Tape arguement:

Dear Duct Tape Users:

Is it Duct or Duck? We don’t want you to be confused, so we will explain. The first name for Duct Tape was DUCK. During World War II the U.S. Military needed a waterproof tape to keep the moisture out of ammunition cases. So, they enlisted the Johnson and Johnson Permacel Division to manufacture the tape. Because it was waterproof, everyone referred to it as “duck” tape (like water off a duck’s back). Military personnel discovered that the tape was good for lots more than keeping out water. They used it for Jeep repair, fixing stuff on their guns, strapping equipment to their clothing... the list is endless.

After the War, the housing industry was booming and someone discovered that the tape was great for joining the heating and air conditioning duct work. So, the color was changed from army green to the silvery color we are familiar with today and people started to refer to it as “duct tape*.” Therefore, either name is appropriate.

Today, Duck® brand Tape is manufactured by Henkel Consumer Adhesives. After thoroughly familiarizing ourselves with the hundreds of duct tapes on the market, we have found Duck® brand Tape to be the most consistent in quality. And, we are delighted with the large array of colors that they manufacture (including camo tape and new “X-Treme Tape” which comes in hot day-glo colors).

Jim and I do lots of appearances promoting Duck® brand Tape and do so without reservation. Therefore, we go by both The Duct Tape Guys, and The Duck Tape Guys. And, we use the words Duck and Duct interchangeably throughout our web site.

So, whether you call it Duct Tape or Duck Tape... you are still using the “Ultimate Power Tool” in our estimation.

--- Jim and Tim, the Duck/Duct Tape Guys

Uh, yeah it did. The intended use for E-tape was to cover up live wires or wires without the cover. Of course you can use any kind of tape for what ever you need. Hell man tape is tape. There are many kinds of tape and they have a world of uses.
