Product Description

High-quality, vinyl-coated cloth construction, and economically priced Scapa 125 Economy-Grade Gaffers Tape is ideal for large jobs and budget-minded operations. It features a single coating of a natural rubber-based adhesive with a low-gloss finish. Scapa 125 has a relatively low to moderate adhesion level (only 28 ounces per inch), so it's a great choice for anyone not requiring aggressive adhesion. This tape will perform well in floor and stage marking and other applications where you need adhesion on hard, non-carpeted surfaces. The lower adhesion means the gaffer tape is unlikely to leave any adhesive residue behind. This tape features Scapa's extremely low-gloss backing and reflects the least amount of light of all the gaffer tapes we sell.

Scapa 125 is not recommended for applications such as wire securing or cable hold-down.

Note: FindTape can offer Scapa 125 gaffers tape in non-standard sizes due to our converter receiving the tape in wide width log rolls. These cut rolls will be shipped on non-branded, plain white cores.

Colors Make A Difference
Scapa 125 Economy Grade Gaffers Tape
To be fare, I wish I could give the tape a 3.5 stars, but I will accept a 4. The reason being is that we purchased the tape for a stage design involveing wide strips of white and grey going up, down, sideways across a painted black background. We applied the white first and used all of 2 rolls. next we applied the grey roll, using 75% of one roll. We thought we had made a really cool looking Eddie Van Halen guitar look on this studio wall. We were really proud of it and was exstatic that we only used tape to do it. However, the next morning we were shocked when we entered the room only to find that the grey tape had pulled away from the wall and began to sag and pull itself off. The good news is that the white stayed on.So, other things that may have contributed to just the grey being an issue. It was almost 68 degrees in the room, which may have made the tape less likely to stick. Yet the only other difference that we could think, was that the grey tape was a little different texture because of the coloring! I know this is not the typical use for this tape, but I would have assumed it would stick a little better than it did.

Scapa 125 Economy Grade Gaffers Tape
I have placed several orders with this company and have always received quality product. I would highly recommend find tape for all your tape needs. Their service is fast and when I had an order arrive in the wrong color, they were quick to correct the problem. I have had only this one mishap out of the many orders I have placed. I am very satisfied with the service and the product.

Why would I ever shop anywhere else?
Scapa 125 Economy Grade Gaffers Tape
I have used the last few times I have ordered my gaffers tape and I see no reason why I would ever buy anywhere else. The site is easy to navigate, the checkout process a breeze and I received the tape in just a few days. Easy Peasy! Thank you!

Highly recommended!
Scapa 125 Economy Grade Gaffers Tape
The tape was used to join floor boards together for a party at a high school gymnasium so creating a solid "joint" was imperative. The tape was painted and did not flake off.

GREAT product
Scapa 125 Economy Grade Gaffers Tape
This is a great product and we use it in various situations. Some things that are great is easy to use and carry around, versatile for any type situation, holds and conceals cables great! Love this product. I am a little concerned why the price has gone higher in such a short period of time. :( It is becoming a pricey.

great product
Scapa 125 Economy Grade Gaffers Tape
We use the black 2" x 60 for DJ work, taping down wires, light weight items. Low adhesion is perfect as tapes comes right off w/o residue after nights over...No prob using on hardwood floors, carpet, painted surfaces.

Scapa 125 Economy Gaffer tape
Scapa 125 Economy 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.
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).
