Yes! T-Rex Tape is specially designed with UV resistant materials which gives T-Rex Tape dynamic holding power inside AND outside.

T-Rex is designed for extreme all-weather durability. The duct tape will freeze below 32°F, but will keep its strength when thawed. Other products have their own extreme temperature ranges. Make sure to check out the product pages for details. 

T-Rex Tape is best applied at the surface temperature range of 32°F to 200°F, but will withstand temperatures as low as -7°F.

The double thick, super aggressive adhesive, allows T-Rex Tape to hold better to more surfaces than ordinary tapes.  That includes rough and dirty surfaces in a wide range of temperatures and humidity.
