Specialty Self Adhesive Tapes - Duct Tape

Duct Tape is a polyethylene, reinforced, multi-purpose pressure sensitive Tape. It has a soft and flexible shell and pressure sensitive adhesive. It comes in black or silver colour though other coloured one's are also sold.  They generally have a width of 1 7/8 inches (48 mm). Duct Tape consists of 3 layers. The top layer is a resilient plastic (Polyethylene). The middle layer is a fabric mesh, which facilitates tearing. And the bottom layer is a rubber-based adhesive. The 3 layers are pressed together during manufacture. It is also known by many names like Gun-Tape, Riggers Tape, Hurricane Tape and 100-mph Tape. Another popular name that the Tape acquired is 'Duck Tape'. It is not clear as to why it has been named so but some are of view that the Tape has a water-shedding quality similar to Duck's Plumage and some consider that it is made of Cotton Duck, a Canvas type of cloth.
