I'm looking for an adhesive that will stick to the back of duct tape, which I assume is some sort of vinyl. In any case, there's oil in it, which makes it slick.

Please don't "guess"; E6000 doesn't work, and I've tried many other things. If you've got an answer on this one, or another way you've solved the problem, I welcome your advice!

What are you making?  Is the duct tape adhesive not strong enough?

Don't call it trash...I can make something with it!!!

Keep it loose, keep it tight.

I'm making a bracelet band out of the duct tape, then gluing stuff onto it. Getting glue to stick to the "stuff" is the easy part; getting it to stick permanently to the non-tacky side of the duct tape is not.

Maybe some boat glue of some kind will work.

I did try something else, which was punching holes in the band, setting rivets, then gluing objects to the rivets. Brads will also work. Still, not ideal.

i would try stiching them. personally, i think almost all glue makes for shoddy work, and is best left to paper goods.

I think with stuff like duct tape, almost no glue will hold because there is no grain. (texture)
