Duct, duck & gaffer tape

Duct tape, or duck tape, is cloth- or scrim-backed pressure sensitive tape often sealed with polyethylene. Duct tape is commonly used in situations that require a strong, flexible, very sticky tape.

It is very similar to gaffer tape but differs in that gaffer tape was designed to be cleanly removed, while duct tape was not. It comes in matte black, and is more easily torn into thin strips for precise application.
