The origin of the silver tape dates back to the Second World War. The military needed a waterproof tape to keep moisture and water out of the ammunition boxes. This was also why the silver tape was originally green. After use, it was quickly noticed that the tape was good for so much more than just keeping moisture out of ammunition. People started repairing, mending and bundling things with this tape.

Nowadays, there is a whole host of different qualities and properties of this product. Strength and quality are often determined by 1, how dense the fabric/back material is. 2, What is the total thickness of the tape. A dense weave that is strong and a good layer of “glue”, adhesive, is essential for a good quality silver tape.
