DIY String Art Tutorial
Originally, when this product was invented, it used a loose woven fabric as reinforcement. The fabric was known as cotton duck, thus "duck" tape. A clever businessman was able to trademark as a brand name "Duck Tape", so anyone else wanting to sell the product needed a new name to refer to it buy, kind of like Heinz Ketchup versus generic Catsup. The new name that was created as a generic was duct tape, because it sounded similar. duct tape is actually quite terrible for actual HVAC uses in most cases, as it tends to peel off at the temperatures of a furnace in the winter, and a foil backed tape has largely if not totally supplanted duck based tapes for use in HVAC applications. Hope this has been enlightening, and everyone found this at least slightly interesting.https://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Cotton_duckhttps://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Duct_tape
