History: Duct tape: is a polyethylene multi-purpose tape with a soft and flexible shell and pressure sensitive adhesive
It is generally silver or black in color but many other 30+ colors have become available. 
Standard width of 1+7⁄8 inches (48 mm)
Duct tape was originally developed during World War II in 1942 as a water resistant sealing tape for ammunition cases. 
Johnson & Johnson, used a rubber-based adhesive to help the tape resist water and a fabric backing to add strength. 
It was also used to repair military equipment quickly, including jeeps, firearms, and aircraft because of these properties.
In military circles, this variant is known as "gun-tape", typically olive-green, and also known for its resistance to oils and greases.
