This bright, high luminance fluorescent green Gaffer Tape is routinely used by special effects professionals to clean up overlapping areas in a “key,” the green screen shot where the back- ground of a scene will be digitally inserted in post production. The high-gain, fluorescent nature of the tape makes it an excellent choice when working in digital green areas, such as surfaces painted in our Ultimatte® and DigiComp® Green paints. GaffTac™ Keying Tape will work in many shots to mask seams, edges, scenic elements or to cover irregular surfaces not otherwise properly colored for a successful key.
GaffTac™ 2in Keying Tape is made on a traditional cotton cloth and vinyl coated fabric base and uses a synthetic rubber blend adhesive. This combination provides high tack with excellent adhesion yet still removes cleanly without leaving behind any sticky residue. It’s also easily tearable, which means no need for cutting tools. The textured weave of cotton fabric helps insure limited reflections or glare that might spoil the keying shot.
