Product Description

Duck Brand Glow-in-the-Dark Gaffers Duct Tape is a gaffer-style tape that glows in the dark, making it perfect for everything from craft projects and set design to adding night-visible signage in low-lit conditions for added safety. This glow-in-the-dark duct tape is made from an acrylic-coated cloth with a synthetic rubber adhesive, so it's easy to tear in both directions. The photoluminescent color glows vividly after being activated by an artificial or natural light source. With this duct tape, glow-in-the-dark pigments are activated and fully charged within 30 minutes of exposure to light and glows at its brightest for the first 15 to 30 minutes post-activation. Additionally, Duck Glow-in-the-Dark Gaffers Duct Tape is printable and can be die-cut to different shapes and sizes for various projects. It also has a smear-free, writable surface, so it can be used for labeling in dark spaces as well. supplies this tape in super-narrow 3/4-inch wide by 6-foot long rolls as well as thicker 2-inch wide by 10-foot long rolls.

Alert Roll Sizes/Widths

Please note that tape rolls are NOT guaranteed to be splice-free. Tape rolls are typically cut to standard tape industry metric-cut sizes - or approx 5% narrower than the nominal size (i.e. 24mm per 1-inch of nominal width ordered).

Nominal Tape Widths vs Actual Widths

Nominal vs. Actual Widths Zoom In

Tape rolls are cut to standard tape industry metric widths of approx. 24mm per 1-inch of nominal width ordered. As a result ACTUAL tape widths are normally 5% narrower than the NOMINAL width shown in inches. Examples:

  • 1" Nominal width = 15/16" (24mm) Actual width
  • 2" Nominal width = 1-7/8" (48mm) Actual width
  • 3" Nominal width = 2-13/16" (72mm) Actual width

Note that tape rolls are NOT guaranteed to be splice-free.

Customer Feb 25, 2018
QUESTION: Does it glow with a little light in the background or do I need pitch black conditions?
ANSWER: It will glow with a little light in the background.

QUESTION: Is this tape removeable and does it leave residue?
ANSWER: This is very easy to remove. Everything I removed within 48 hours was a breeze and left mo residue. Some of the tape I left on for more than 2-weeks and although it was still easy to remove and left no residue, some some of my paint peeled from the wall.

User Reviews

Duck Brand Glow-In-The-Dark Gaffers Duck Tape
Made in the USA
hot melt rubber (synthetic)
Offers the widest range of application flexibility available. Exhibits excellent processing performance whether manually or automatically applied. Has superior tensile strength, adhesion properties and holding force which ensures consistent, reliable seals. Hot melt adhesive will bond faster to a surface which is referred to as quick-grab or quick-stick. It typically has higher tack (will feel stickier to the touch), but is also softer. It has lower heat resistance, shear resistance, and sometimes UV resistance than an acrylic adhesive. NOTE: it is called hot melt because the adhesive is applied hot by the manufacturer and then hardens as it cools (you do not need to apply heat to the tape yourself).
natural rubber
Properties are similar to that of hot melt rubber, but natural rubber often holds where other adhesives won't (recycled fibers, dust, cold, heat and heavy loads). It provides good overall adhesion and moisture resistance.
Offer excellent performance, especially for applications in temperatures less than 40°F and greater then 120°F. It provides excellent clarity, has high shear strength, is usually more permanent/durable even when exposed to moisture, and it ages well over extended periods in fluorescent and sunlight. Since it remains clear for the life of the application and does not yellow over time it is ideal for applications such as sealing white cartons. While it has good initial adhesion it does take 24-48 hours to cure and to achieve its maximum bond strength (has gradual adhesion buildup). Another difference between hot melt rubber and acrylic adhesive is if you fold tape over making the two adhesive sides touch the acrylic adhesive will remain attached to the carrier (e.g. paper, film) while a hot melt adhesive will stick to itself and pull off of the carrier. It is the best choice for clarity, UV resistance and aging characteristics.
Is great for extreme temperature applications since silicone adhesive can work in continuous operating temperatures from -100°F to 500°F. They also exhibit good chemical resistance, retain electrical properties, and remove cleanly with little or no residue.
zinc oxide
Zinc oxide based adhesive formula is a skin-friendly adhesive which is commonly used on sports medicine tapes.
Thickness, AKA caliper or gauge, refers to the distance from one surface of a tape backing, or adhesive, to the other.
1 mil = 1/1000 of an inch
Examples: 1/16 inch = 62.5 mils; 1/32 inch = 31.25 mils
