Weather and Temperature



Q: May I use Command Damage-Free Hanging Products under cold weather?

A: You may, if the temperature is above 10°C, the adhesive can be applied directly onto a clean, smooth and dry surface. If the temperature is below 10°C, warm the surface with a hair dryer and affix the products when the surface is still warm.

Q: May I use Command Damage-Free Hanging Products under hot weather?

A: Extreme heat and sun exposure can damage the adhesiveness. If the temperature rises above 40°C, the adhesiveness diminishes over time until it is completely gone.

Q: May I use Command Damage-Free Hanging Products inside my car?

A: We do not recommend using these in your car because the adhesiveness of the strips may be compromised or even lost when the temperature is above 40°C. In addition, vinyl dashboards and door panels contain have high content of plasticizers, making it hard for the strips to stick firmly on the surface.

Q: Is there any different between white strip and blue strip in term of their application and applicable temperature?

A: Command Damage-Free white strips can be used in areas such as living room and bedroom, where the temperature ranges from 10°C to 40°C. The special Command Water Resistant blue strips demonstrate amazing adhesiveness on surfaces with a temperature ranging from 10°C to 50°C. As such, the blue strips work well not only in dry areas, such as living room and bedroom, but also in high humidity environment, such as bathroom and kitchen.
