Popular for its strength and flexibility, gaffer's tape has the ability to adhere to a wide variety of surfaces. Gaffer's tape will not break if pulled or twisted, but can be easily torn along the side, eliminating the need for scissors. And, because of its slight heat and water resistant features, gaffer's tape is an ideal adhesive commonly used by the motion picture, television, and photographic industries. Because gaffer's tape is equipped with a synthetic rubber adhesive, as opposed to a natural rubber adhesive, it can be pulled off an object without leaving behind a sticky residue. And, gaffer's tape usually does not harm the objects on which the tape is applied.
