Let the Light in With New Transparent Duck Tape®

Transform Craft or Repair Projects With New Color-Tinted Transparent Duct Tape From Duck® Brand

AVON, OH--(Marketwired - Mar 24, 2016) - There's a totally new twist on America's favorite fix-all. Get ready to add some see-through style to your next craft or repair project with the latest introduction from Duck® brand: Duck Tape Transparent Tints®.

Transparent Tints let the light shine through, adding a touch of color and a translucent finish to all your Duck Tape® projects -- from crafts and decorations to household repairs. The tapes are available in three vibrant shades*: Aqua, Fuchsia and Lime.

"Duck Tape® has gone far beyond standard silver," said Patti LaPorte, senior category manager at ShurTech Brands, LLC, the company that markets the Duck® brand. "From colors and prints to mini rolls and licensed tapes, we're always looking for new ways to innovate in the world of duct tape, and we're so excited to share this latest creation with our dedicated duct tape enthusiasts."

Perfect for home or school assignments, these versatile Transparent Tints are great for a variety of uses where transparency is important. Examples include: labeling supplies or containers, like school supplies, lunch boxes and water bottles; protecting or laminating surfaces; or simply giving a bright tint to a repair or craft -- without hiding what's beneath.

"Sometimes you want a more subtle look for a craft, or want to add a hint of color to a utilitarian task," adds LaPorte. "Whether your purpose is fashionable or functional, Transparent Tints provide the right amount of pop to your project."

Transparent Tints are available in 1.88 x 10-yard rolls, all which coordinate well with the brand's vibrant palette of hundreds of colors, designs and licenses. They offer the same high-performance strength expected of Duck Tape® and work on a variety of surfaces, including wood, vinyl, plastic, leather, metal and laminate. Transparent Tints have a suggested retail price of $4-$6 per roll.
