Theaters And Productions Companies Often Use Gaffing Tape There are a lot of different types of tapes that you can get on the market. Some of the different kinds that you often hear about are the clear adhesive tape, masking tape and electrical tape. One that you don't hear about as much but one that's extremely important is gaffing tape. When you don’t hear much about it, how would you know if you ever need to use it? This kind of tape has a lot of wonderful uses. To understand it better, it will help to look at its physical makeup, its uses, and also the cost of purchasing it. Physical Makeup When you initially get a hold of some gaffing tape (also called gaffer tape or gaff tape), you might be surprised at the feel of it. This tape is in fact more like a tough cloth. It might surprise you to find that it adheres to different surfaces quite well. There are people that have compared gaffer tapes adhesive properties to that of duct tape. There's a big difference between gaff tape and duct tape, however. Due to its adhesive strength, you might have noticed that the duct tape is harder to get up from surfaces. Plus, once you do get the tape up, it can often leave unsightly markings where a bit of the adhesive has come off and stuck to the surface in spots where the tape was placed. Gaff tape, on the flip side, maintains strong adhesive properties while making clean-up easy. When you remove it from a surface, it won't leave behind any unsightly marks and it is easy to tear into pieces. Gaff tape is available in a variety of colors, too. The Uses Gaff tape is most commonly used in the production for theatre, movies and television. This tape is used to help videographers know where to be, to hold down microphones to podiums, to hold a number of props in place, and to give actors direction on where to move or stand. Although gaff tape will come in many different colors, the traditional color of matte black is very common. Conference centers, theatres, and TV and film crews use this tape to help give direction and hold things down as needed. You may even be able to use this tape for almost any other use that you'd have for tape, although it might be more economical to use a different tape unless gaff tape is totally necessary. Cost You'll be able to see all the wonderful things that gaff tape can really do. Because of its amazing properties, like its capability to be torn easily and just how easy it is to clean up, it will usually cost more than other kinds of tape. In fact, you may often find it costing three times as much as normal duct tape. The cost will certainly be worth it, once you consider how easy it is to clean up, the truth that no residue will be left behind, and that you are able to tear it over and over again without hurting your wrist. The gaffing tape is such an amazing invention that many of us may not have heard of yet. It is commonly used in film or TV productions, as well as in theatres and conference centers. It is comparable to duct tape in its level of strength, but it is not difficult to rip, and will leave no Gaff Brands
