The Gorilla Glue Company is based in Cincinnati, Ohio and has been selling Gorilla Glue® for over two decades. The glue was first discovered by Mark Singer in 1994 being used in Indonesia on teak furniture, but consumers soon found it to be incredibly versatile and demand soared. On a mission to make products that deliver impressive results, the company has since expanded its offerings to include Gorilla Tape®, Gorilla® Super Glue, Gorilla® Construction Adhesive, and other premium tapes, sealants, and adhesives. Gorilla believes in high-quality products and chooses to only put the Gorilla logo on products that meet rigorous development standards.
Polyurethane glues had been popular outside the United States for some time and were widely used in the woodworking industry. The product was imported to the US and originally sold only to furniture manufacturers. The company began selling Gorilla Glue to consumers in 1999 The company was purchased by Lutz Tool Company which later changed its name to The Gorilla Glue Company.
The company developed a wide range of products, varying in type and intended use. Gorilla Glue is still their most popular product, but the extraordinarily strong tapes, sealants, and epoxies offer products for all kind of adhesive and sealant related tasks.
Gorilla tapes are preferred by the military and law-enforcement workers as the adhesive layer of these products are stronger, the tapes themselves thicker, therefore, more durable compared to other commercial products. They vary in size not only by length but three different widths is available from the thinnest Gorilla Handy Roll (earlier known as Tape-to-go) through the standard Gorilla Tape to the widest and strongest Gorilla Tough and Wide.
Not only military or law enforcement workers can benefit from using Gorilla White tapes though. It provides a cheap, reliable and easy to use tool for ER workers, combat or police medics to record data instead of vulnerable paper and plastic bags in case of mass accidents or pre-hospital care.
