What is Masking Tape?

Masking tape is typically used for "masking" off areas that should not be painted, avoiding the risk of paint getting onto surfaces it shouldn’t; hence why it is also known as ‘Decorators Tape.’

Made from crepe paper, it is easy to tear, quick and convenient to apply, and can be removed without leaving residue or causing any damage.

It is water resistant and can be used in temperatures up to 60°C. It will also stay in place for up to a few weeks in sunlight.

If used in a packaging scenario, as it removes cleanly, boxes can be opened and reused without damage.

The tape is also widely used in the outdoors, as well as the repair and automotive industries (e.g. ideal for spray painting) - even the woodwork industry!

It usually comes with a Solvent or Hot Melt adhesive.

They are also known as....

Paper Masking Tape, Painters Tape, High Temp Tape, Frog Tape, Industrial Adhesive Tape
