Product Description

When you need a high-quality gaffers tape, choose Polyken 510 premium-grade gaffers tape. This vinyl-coated tape has a heavy-duty design and offers flexibility and moisture resistance for a wide range of applications. Polyken 510 is a high tack tape with premium-grade adhesion. The non-reflective matte cloth backing is low gloss and waterproof, so it's ideal for the outdoors, where weather and temperature are important factors. This gaffers tape offers a softer adhesive over other brands, so it works well when used on carpeting. We also carry Polyken 510-Neon for high-visibility requirements.

  • Supports weak tripods and stands
  • Secure light stands to floor

  • Wrapping and bundling of wire, metals and plastics
  • Vinyl school bus seat repair
  • Mark lines on classroom floor
  • Roller derby track set-up
  • Solidifies DIY projects
  • Moisture and dust-proof sealing of equipment cases and film canisters
  • Fencing foil tip tape (or point tape)

Features & Benefits

  • Vinyl-coated waterproof cloth backing
  • Extremely flexible
  • High tack and superior adhesion
  • Non-reflective backing; low gloss
  • Clean removal adhesive
  • Stays flexible and conforms in low and high temperatures

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.

Custom Tape Widths
May be Available!

  • Need custom sized or "full-cut" width tapes? Many of our tapes come to our converter as full wide width "log rolls" (not pre-cut), and can be custom cut to widths not shown in the pricing table.
  • Contact us today for pricing and minimum requirements to order your desired tape in a custom width.
  • Please note that since this tape comes in "log roll" format most rolls ship on a plain white core (i.e. with no branding or text inside the core).

Special Order Policies & Footnotes:

Special Order Policies

  • Special orders are non-returnable (and non-cancelable if materials have been already ordered or cut before the cancellation request was received).
  • Special order sizes often ship direct from our supplier so will not arrive together with stocked products.

Special Order Minimums

  • Minimum requirements apply because a size may be non-stock or if special setup is required to cut rolls to your desired custom width.
  • Minimum Quantities: If a particular size has a minimum item requirement, please only order that size in multiples of that minimum (e.g. if the minimum is 12, then use multiples like 12, 24, 36, etc).

Close to perfect
Polyken 510 Premium Grade Gaffers Tape
After many attempts at trying to find the good quality gaffer’s tape of old, I think I’ve finally found it in this tape. While not 100% as good as the gaffer’s I remember, this tape has all the qualities that I expect: it tears cleanly and without threads, removes cleanly and without any sticky residue, has no chemical odor, and sticks to virtually anything. The only minor complaint I have about it is that it feels slightly less “fabric-y” and slightly more ”plastic-y”, but that does not seem to have an effect on the tape’s performance. Don’t waste your time with Amazon’s gaffer’s tape imitations at a lower cost. This tape is as close as I’ve found to perfect!

Nothing beats gaffers tape
Polyken 510 Premium Grade Gaffers Tape
After working in the theater/entertainment industry for over 30 years I have tried many different brands/types of gadgets tape. For the dollars spent nothing beats the Polyken 510. It has great adhesion easy to tear and very good longevity. I whole heartedly recommend it.

Polyken 510 Premium Grade Gaffers 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.
acrylic
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.
silicone
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
