 What is Gaffer's Tape?
Gaffer's tape is a flexible, strong, fabric-backed adhesive tape that comes in lengths ranging from one inch (2.5 centimeters) to a potential of six feet (1.8 meters), with the most common width being four inches (approximately 10 centimeters).
Gaffer's tape is manufactured in large rolls that are six feet (1.8 meters) across and cut down to the size needed, making it theoretically possible to custom order a roll of tape in that size, although it might be challenging to unroll and handle.
Gaffer's tape is also somewhat heat and water resistant and capable of handling low temperatures, which is why it is used in many stage applications, such as taping down trailing cables and cords for safety; placing blocking marks for furniture, actors, or cameras; and taping set pieces together.
