Product Description

Shurtape A&E P-665 is a general-purpose cloth gaffers tape that's economical yet high-performance. This is the industry-standard gaffers tape and has been for decades, as it's commonly used for holding wiring, lighting and props and other set and stage applications. Shurtape gaffers tape (once called Permacel gaffers tape) now comes in just three colors - black, white and gray - but if you need colored gaffers tape with similar specifications, you can order Pro Tapes Pro-Gaff from Shurtape P-665 General Purpose Gaffers Tape is ideal for many gaffers tape uses thanks to its vinyl-coated cloth backing and residue-free removal. It's also conformable, so it'll adhere nicely to irregular surfaces, and can be cleanly torn by hand. Pick up this professional-grade gaffers tape by the roll or case from FindTape.

Product Applications

  • Holding wiring, lighting and props
  • Splicing
  • Bundling wires and cables
  • Color-coding

Shurtape P-665 General Purpose Gaffers Tape
I have used this tape for years, make custom moccasins and use for fittings and labeling, sturdy flexible and doesn't leave glue behind

P-665 is the perfect tape for social dancers
Shurtape P-665 General Purpose Gaffers Tape
I teach Couples' Social Dancing and bought this tape for my students. When they come to class in "street" shoes, I give them this tape to go on the "balls" of their shoes - to provide just the right amount of "slip". This tape provides about the same friction (or grip) as plain leather or suede, as found on good dance shoes.

We have received our tape. We video ballroom competitions. The tape comes off the floor, carpet with ease and the electrical cords.

Great for sticking to shoes for dancing. Doesn't fold over & then removes nicely.

The archetype of gaffer tape
Shurtape P-665 General Purpose Gaffers Tape
The archetype of gaffer tape. Not inexpensive but a good value. Ridiculously versatile. Don't leave home without it.

Great on Block Walls for ceremonial uses.
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
The cut level indicates how many grams of cutting load a glove can withstand from a sharp blade before being penetrated.
Lower gauge gloves are heavier - have thicker construction, fewer stiches knitted per inch and offer less dexterity.
Higher gauge gloves are lighter - have thinner/finer construction, more stitches knitted per inch and offer more dexterity.
Gloves offered typically runs from 7 to 18 (12 and 13 are in the middle of the scale).
