Convert Custom Masking Tape into Custom Shapes and Sizes for Different Applications
Masking Tapes are crepe paper surfaced with adhesive systems that vary depending on temperature and other application issues. Masking tape is an adhesive tape that has many general purpose uses, but masking tape can also be highly engineered to perform specific masking functions.
General Purpose Masking Tape
General purpose masking tape is used for light duty bundling, holding items in place, and for flagging and marking. General purpose masking tape consists of a crepe paper backing and a rubber based adhesive system. The thickness and strength of the paper may vary, and the adhesive may have different properties as well. So, there are many types and grades of “general purpose” masking tape.
High Temperature Masking Tape
Masking tape is used extensively in painting applications where heat is needed. High temperature masking tapes provide excellent bonding to surfaces during paint application with oven drying requirements in excess of 250 degrees Fahrenheit. Some paint applications require such high temperature resistance that the backing of the masking tape may in fact be polyimide film, not paper.
Low Temperature Masking Tape
Lower temperature masking tapes have crepe paper backing and are used for masking applications in the transportation industry and for protection against spray painting. These masking tape products are highly conformable to irregular surfaces; the adhesive removes cleanly; and they provide straight paint lines, avoiding fuzziness or bleeding. Masking tapes used for painting homes are rated by how long they can stay up without leaving a residue when removed. These tapes are typically blue; and the longer they stay up, the less adhesive they have.
