Product Description

When you need a reliable, glow-in-the-dark gaffers tape for safety marking and other applications, pick Shurtape P-661. This premium-grade gaffers tape features a high-quality adhesive and offers clean, residue-free removal, so it's ideal for temporary applications in the audio/visual, television, motion picture, photography, theater industries.

P-661 glow-in-the-dark tape is made with premium photoluminescent pigments for improved glow intensity and duration. Additionally, it's hand-tearable in both directions and is writable and printable thanks to its non-smearing surface. Shurtape P-661 Glow-in-the-Dark Gaffers Tape is also exceptionally conformable, so it's perfect for adhesion to irregular shapes and surfaces.

This residue-free glow-in-the-dark gaff tape is typically fully charged within 30 minutes after exposure to either artificial or natural light. It glows at its brightest for the first 15 to 30 minutes post-activation but will remain clearly visible in a totally dark environment to the night-adjusted eye for hours. This product has a luminescent glow but would not compare in brightness to a standard flashlight.

Product Applications

  • Safety marking in low-lit and dark spaces for stairs, exits, and more
  • Temporary signage in windowless conditions
  • Labeling
  • Arts and crafts projects
Country of Origin: United States.

Gaffers tape that glows!
Shurtape P-661 Glow in the Dark Gaffers Tape
Love that can get a removable gaffers tape that also provides some visibility for us in the dark.

Glow tape that actually sticks!
Shurtape P-661 Glow in the Dark Gaffers Tape
First, I will say that I am not generally a fan of glow tape; I find that it never seems to glow long enough to be of much use. Aside from attempting to mark hazards backstage with it, I try to mark doors and light switches with it but I have yet to find a tape that will hold a glow long enough to cover a whole show. The major use for glow tape with us is for spike marks where a change needs to occur in a blackout. Since this is a short duration preceded and followed by a lot of light, glow tape works well. For this use, glow gaff is the bee's knees. This stuff functions just like regular spike tape; you can tear it off the roll and stick it on the floor and it just stays, even under a lot of traffic. No more scissors and covering it with packing tape to keep it from curling off the floor! While it is generally a good tape, it does not hold a charge quite as long as the regular plastic/foil stuff. If I could find some glow tape like this that would glow for a couple hours (or indefinitely, i.e. tritium) and not require a NASA-like budget, I would give it a 5.
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).
