AVON, OH--(Marketwired - Apr 24, 2013) - Epic teamwork. Distinct powers. Marvel's legendary Super Heroes are joining forces with America's classic fix-all for the ultimate powerhouse pairing -- "The Avengers" Duck® brand duct tape! The tape combines the mighty force of Captain America, Thor, Hulk and Iron Man with the longtime strength of Duck Tape®, helping to add a heroic twist to repairs, crafting and more.
"The Avengers" Duck Tape® features the four famous Marvel characters banding together to save humanity from threats too big for one super hero: Captain America runs full-speed ahead; Thor swings his mighty hammer; Hulk flexes his incredible muscles; and Iron Man readies repulsor rays on his energy-powered suit of armor.
"The Avengers' combination of powerful qualities goes hand-in-hand with the strength, versatility and durability that's helped Duck Tape® stand the test of time," said Traci Finkelmeier, director of licensed products at ShurTech Brands, LLC, the company that markets Duck Tape®. "Our fans constantly amaze us with inventive new ways to use the sticky stuff, so we're thrilled to give them this fun and action-packed new print."
This new addition to the Duck Tape® family of more than 200 colors, designs and licenses is now available at retailers nationwide. To see the latest duct tape creations, or share your masterpiece, visit www.duckbrand.com.
