Is U Glue Adhesive Tape Comparible to Super Glue?

by Theresa on January 8, 2011 · 3 comments

The U Glue infomercial claims that it has the strength of super glue in the convenience of tape. It comes in convenient little patches and strips. Much like a double sided tape that feels like rubber cement when you peel it off. Judging by the infomercial they have found countless ways to stick all sorts of weird materials together. Although your probably wondering, what are the practical uses for this glue around the home??

Does U Glue adhesive tape really work?

U Glue Claims

Used for floor repairs, crafts, shoes, just about anything.
UGlu has the strength of adhesive and the convenience of tape.
UGlu is easy to use you just peel and stick and your done.
Non-toxic, waterproof, acid free, and works instantly.
It removes easily with no residue and no mess.

What Worked

  • Unlike Crazy Glue or Super Glue, U Glue will stick to anything EXCEPT your fingers. It does live up to this promise and application is very easy.
  • Worked well under windy conditions to keep a plastic table cloth down.
  • Does work well to stick together a detached strap on a pair of sandals.
  • WNDU News Test - Held down the corner of an area rug down well and permanently.

What Didn't Work

  • You can easily remove it although in the video review they noticed that when U Glue was in the sun, the removal of U Glue from a table took the paint right off.
  • It doesn't work well with wall pictures. It stays for a couple of days but fell. Best to use a hook or nail.
  • Not water proof as advertised. WNDU News did a test with a towel bar in the shower and it came unglued.

U Glue works for light jobs around the home. Judging from two different tests, where there is a lot of stress put on the glue strips it doesn't stay but for light jobs it works fine.Overall, Julie and her daughter found that for $10 the as advertised and was deal. Now if you've ever struggled with opening plastic packaging, here's a review of the Open It!

Can’t get the adhesive off my tile floor. Tried Goo-Be- Gone and it still won’t come off. I put the strips on the bottom of the carpet runners so they wouldn’t slip. Now I can’t get the adhesive off the floor. What do you suggest.
