Red gaffers tape is a strong, pressure-sensitive tape with a red rubber adhesive backing and a matte, non-reflective cloth surface. It is commonly used in the entertainment industry for securing cables, marking stages, and a variety of other applications. Matt red gaffers tape consists of a PE-coated 80-mesh fabric backing coated with a pressure-sensitive natural rubber adhesive, , that provides strong adhesion but can be removed without leaving residue or damaging surfaces. The red color makes it highly visible, which is useful for marking and labeling purposes. 

The combination between the very matte surface of the backing makes it the ideal tape for subtle applications on stages. Matt gaffer tape features light-absorbing, non-reflective, good adhesion, even on rough surfaces, abrasion resistant, water repellent, conformable, easy to remove, and provides a very good protection from dust and dirt.
