Gaffer tape vs Duct tape: How to choose wisely?

Everyone knows about gaffer tape and duct tape, but not everybody knows the difference between both products.  Choosing the wrong pressure-sensitive tape for the wrong application could lead to a mess.  Here’s MPI Solution’s small guide to help you understand everything there is to know about gaffer tape and duct tape.

Gaffer tape.

Even though gaffer tape looks just like duct tape, it has its own features.  Frequently used by the entertainment industry for its high heat resistance and ability to be removed without any residue, gaffer tape is the perfect fit for short term usage.  You can take a look at our wide range of gaffer tape to find the perfect pressure-sensitive tape for your needs.

Duct tape.

If you’re looking for pressure-sensitive tapes that need to hold on for a long time, duct tape is your best choice.  With its capability to stick almost anywhere, its waterproof features and strong polyethylene cloth backing,  duct tapes are a no-brainer for permanent repairs.
